Postdoctoral positions in supramolecular chemistry (# of pos: 2)

Updated: 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 22 May 2022

Applications are invited for 2 postdoctoral positions in a research grant 'Selective transport of biologically relevant anions through lipid bilayers' funded by the National Science Centre, Poland. Successful candidates will work in the Supramolecular Chemistry Laboratory under the supervision of Prof. Michał Chmielewski.

Short description of the project
Anion transport across biological membranes is vital for many important life processes. Accordingly, synthetic anion transporters, i.e., molecules capable of catching anions from a solution, transporting them across a biological membrane and releasing them into the solution on the other side, exhibit a wide range of interesting biological activity. As part of this project, we design, synthesize and study molecules that are capable of selectively transporting anions of biological importance, such as metabolites, drugs or amino acid anions. We are also interested in developing switchable transporters, whose activity may be regulated by pH, light and redox potential.

The project will be carried out in state-of-the-art research facilities of Supramolecular Chemistry Laboratory located in a new building of Biological and Chemical Research Centre - a part of the Faculty of Chemistry, Warsaw University.

Salary: PLN 10,000 gross-gross/month (ca. PLN 7715 gross/month).
