The Laboratory of Bioelectrochemistry and Interfaces at São Paulo University (USP), campus at São Carlos, São Paulo state, Brazil, invites applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship in bioelectrochemistry under supervision of Professor Frank Crespilho and funded by Foundation for Research Support of the State of São Paulo (FAPESP) contract. The successful candidate will conduct research on the molecular interaction between biomolecules and nanostructures, including:
- developing and testing enzymes bioelectrodes;
- transferring high activity/selectivity biocatalyst to a surface-confined environment;
- studying the interplay between charge transport, mass transport, and molecular conformation of enzymes;
- developing new tools for FTIR Chemical Imaging coupled with electrochemistry.
Fellowship for postdoctoral researchers allows you to carry out a long-term research project (12-24 months), starting at 10/2016.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in chemistry, chemical engineering, electrochemical engineering, or a related field. Experience in enzymes immobilization and basic electrochemistry is required. Experience with UV-Vis spectroscopy, and FTIR spectroscopy, is preferred. The successful candidate must have excellent communication skills and excel in a highly collaborative research environment. In addition to the timely publication of research results in peer-reviewed journals, the responsibilities of the postdoc include drafting progress reports. Interested individuals should send a (i)cover letter, (II) CV and list of publications, and have (III) two letters of recommendation sent to email@example.com. The deadline for application is 09/11/2016.
