Post-doc position in protein-foldamer supramolecular science Munich

The project concerns the development and characterization of defined assemblies combing recombinant proteins and aromatic oligoamide foldamers, for example capsules or three dimensional lattices, potentially useful as biomolecular containers or biomaterials. Protein design and recombinant expression, foldamer design and solid phase synthesis, collaboration with computational scientists and crystallographers will constitute the core activities.
