PhD in Chemistry Specializing in Molecular Biomimetics at Uppsala University

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD position in inorganic chemistry at Uppsala University, Sweden. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before March 20, 2020.

The Department of Chemistry – ngstrm conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 200 employees and has a turnover of 200 million SEK. At the department’s six programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master’s programs. More information is available on our website.

The student will be part of the bioinorganic chemistry group within the molecular biomimetics program. The program which is highly recognized internationally is part of the Department of chemistry - the ngstrm Laboratory. The group is situated in a modern building at the ngstrm Laboratory. The research in the program spans from organic, inorganic and physical chemistry to biochemistry and biophysics with a focus on redox active metalloenzymes. Strong cross-disciplinary collaborations are characteristic for the program. For more information visit our webpage.

Work duties:The applicant will work in an interdisciplinary project that involves biochemistry, molecular biology and biophysics. The primary role of the PhD student in the project will deal with the identification of novel [FeFe] hydrogenases of potential biotechnological relevance, followed by their heterologous expression and characterization. Selected enzymes will be characterized in depth utilizing a combination of electrochemistry, spectroscopy and mass spectrometry, with a focus on determining reaction mechanisms and the identification of hydrogenases with novel properties. The work will be performed by the PhD student in collaboration with theoreticians, spectroscopists and synthetic chemists at Uppsala University and abroad.
