Opportunity in Solar Fuels Research

Postdoctoral position in Synthetic Biology  

University of East Anglia - Faculty of Science, School of Chemistry  

Applications are invited for the post of Senior Research Associate to join the research group of Prof Julea Butt. The group works at the interface of chemistry and biology to reveal novel properties of redox-enzymes and engineer these proteins for enhanced biotechnology. To further these goals the successful applicant will advance the project ‘Better by Design: Chemically Diverse Biomolecular Wires’ funded by the Leverhulme Trust. The research is supervised by Prof Julea Butt (Principle Investigator) and benefits from collaborative interactions with Dr Amit Sachdeva (School of Chemistry, UEA), Dr Tom Clarke (School of Biological Sciences, UEA) and Prof. Steve Meech (School of Chemistry, UEA).

PhD Position in Marseille: Mechanism of hydrogenases 

University of Marseille

The PhD student will use direct electrochemistry and other kinetic methods to study various aspects of the reactivity of NiFe hydrogenases produced in our lab. The project focuses on the molecular aspects of catalysis, using an interdisciplinary collaboration between chemists and biochemists/molecular biologists at the group of Prof. Christophe Léger.

To apply, please sent to a CV and the contact details of two former advisors. 



Postdoctoral position in Electrochemistry 

University of Paris 

A Postdoctoral research contract funded by the Université de Paris through the granted MOPGA project is available in the group of Prof. Marc Robert. The research that will be carried out in this position targets the electrocatalytic conversion of carbon dioxide into 2C+ high-value hydrocarbons and oxygenates. This work encompasses coordination chemistry, electrocatalytic activity and product analysis, with in and ex situ methods for investigating structure-function relationships during electrocatalysis.
