    Qualifications

    As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent).Applicant with excellent qualifications in two or more of the areas

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    The post doc positions will focus on the characterization of enzyme diversity produced by other researchers in EnDeWa, and the positions will provide excellent conditions for developing leading research skills within applied enzymology.

    The new post docs will focus on characterizing enzymes with respect to activity, kinetic parameters, stability, inhibition and structure. The research will include development, implementation and daily use of methods and assays that are adequate for suspensions of plastic particles. The Post Docs will also be responsible for collection, storage and interpretation of data as and work with the rest on the EnDeWa team on designing new generations of enzyme variants.

    • Enzyme assay development
    • Kinetic characterization and –modeling
    • Structure-function relationships of enzyme catalysis
    • Enzyme design
    • Interfacial enzyme reactions (heterogeneous biocatalysis)

    About EnDeWa project

    EnDeWa project strives to engineer better enzymes for bioprocessing of plastic waste. EnDeWa is supported by Innovation Fund Denmark and brings together an interdisciplinary group of scientists from DTU and Novozymes. The project will apply a range of approaches within design, mutagenesis, production and characterization of plastic degrading enzymes and the aim is to produce both competitive catalysts for industrial application and a leading knowledge platform for the enzymatic deconstruction of plastic.

    Note

    • The post docs will we associated with the research group “Interfacial Enzymology” at DTU Bioengineering.
    • If you are applying from abroad, you may find useful information on working in Denmark and at DTU at DTU – Moving to Denmark.
    • All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender, disability, race, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
