We are currently looking for 15 highly motivated Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to embark on a path towards their PhDs in one of our research projects. The fellowships will begin in the academic year of 2021-2022.

Project: Biocatalysis is the Key Enabling Technology for developing sustainable processes in the chemical industry – remember the Nobel Prize 2018 awarded  for the laboratory evolution of protein catalysts! Are you interested in pursuing a career in biocatalysis research? Are you keen to join an international consortium that comprises some of the leading academic and industrial organisations in this field in Europe? 

Please see a list of the 15 ESR positions available on this link. Catalonia Institute for Advanced Chemistry  (IQAC-CSIC) offers a project entitled ‘Construction of artificial enzyme catalysts for C-C bond forming reactions’ supervised by Dr. Pere Clapés. The researcher that embarks in this project will design and produce these artificial enzymes and will screen for different relevant C-C bond forming reactions. Subsequent tasks will be the engineering for optimal activity and selectivity and identification of relevant applications for industry.
