IMDEA Materials seeks a full-time Post-doc researcher with a priority to candidates with experience in:

  • Engineering and preparation of fluorescent proteins,
  • Spectroscopic characterization of fluorescent proteins (denaturation/renaturation), and
  • Bio-materials based on bio-degradable polymers. We are looking for an individual with initiative and motivation to further develop her/his career in the new and dynamic Hybrid Optoelectronic Materials and Devices research group.

The research activities will be focused on developing new fluorescent proteins and fluorescent protein-polymer coatings for lighting applications as color converters. We will work on understanding degradation pathways and on proposing new additives and polymers to stabilize proteins. The candidate will acquire a mature knowledge on handling of bio-compounds, spectroscopic, rheology, and microscopic techniques, as well as the fabrication and characterization of lighting devices.
