PhD Scholarship in Enzymatic Biomass Conversion Using Single-molecule Optical Microscopy

Technical University of Denmark is delighted to offer a PhD position in sustainable development. Applications should be sent before February 15, 2020.

A PhD scholarship is available in the "Nanofluidics and Bioimaging" group at the Department of Health Technology, DTU Health Tech, starting 1 April 2020.

Using fluorescence microscopy combined with micro- and nanofluidics, the group studies particles and molecules at various length scales, from single DNA molecules over chromosomes to single cells. We encourage the applicant to look at our past publications: Nanofluidics and Bioimaging Enzymatic breakdown of waste biomass will play a pivotal role towards a sustainable energy production. In your PhD project, you will develop methods and use these to investigate such enzymatic processes at the single molecule level. These methods will in general be based on fluorescence microscopy, and on total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy (TIRF) in particular. The aim is to generate a mechanistic understanding of the enzymatic processes, which can be used to guide the optimization of the enzymatic breakdown. The Novo Nordisk Foundation funds your PhD project through a NNF Biotech grant. The supervision team will be lead by Associate Professor Rodolphe Marie. The PhD project is a collaboration DTU Health Tech, DTU Bioengineering and Novozymes A/S. As a PhD student, you will be part of the Nanofluidics and Bioimaging group led by Associate Professor Rodolphe Marie. You will be enrolled in the PhD school at DTU Health Technology. Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.
