Would you like to influence the success of our project "Biological nanostructures: molecular mechanisms and bioengineering" and contribute to a deeper understanding of nanoscale self-assembly? If so, join our highly motivated team at the laboratory of Vladimir Katanaev of the University of Geneva.
Our work identifies how multifunctional nanocoatings are created in nature and translates this knowledge into technological applications. We aim at establishing innovative, sustainable processes within mainstream nanotechnological practices. We perform our research through a combination of mathematical simulation, phylogeny, genetics, biochemistry, and forward engineering. See more here: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2707-9
CANDIDATE PROFILE: For Ph.D. candidates, a recent M.Sc. (or equivalent) degree in Biophysics, Genetics or Biochemistry, or other related fields is required. Background in protein purification, Drosophila genetics, and non-linear differential equations analysis is very much appreciated. Candidates are expected to demonstrate independent research and scientific reporting skills. Communication skills and teamwork attitude are a big plus.
CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT: We are offering excellent research facilities and a competitive salary. The UniGe provides a unique international ecosystem full of training and development opportunities. We are looking for motivated candidates ready to undertake advanced experimental and numerical work within our team.
APPLICATIONS: The call is open, and candidates are urged to apply as early as they can. Please get in touch with Mikhail.Kryuchkov@unige.ch for applications. Suitable candidates should send an e-mail including a cover letter describing interests and qualifications, names and addresses of two scientists to be contacted for reference letters, and a CV as a single PDF.
