Post-doctoral position: responsive oscillating microcapsules

University of Bordeaux, France

The main objective of the project is the development of an artificial cell-like population of chemically oscillating systems based on aqueous liquid-liquid phase separation. The deadline for applications is March 20, 2023. More details here.

Starting date: May 1st, 2023

PhD project: Dynamic protein biosynthesis via an integrated cell-on-a-chip platform device

Institute of Chemical Biology, Imperial College London (ICL)

Under the supervision of Dr Nazila Kamaly (Department of Chemistry, ICL), Professor Oscar Ces (Department of Chemistry, ICL), and Dr Yuval Elani (Department of Chemical Engineering, ICL), the candidate will utilize a multidisciplinary approach to realize cell-on-a-chip devices with compartmentalized organelle-like environments that are connected via microfluidic valves. The final goal of this project is to create a microscale synthetic cell-on-chip for dynamic and precision protein synthesis and bioprocess engineering.

Applicants to this programme will enrol on a 1 year MRes in Chemical Biology and Bioentrepreneurship, followed by a 3 year PhD, building on the research project from the MRes. More details here.
