Postdoctoral Research Associate in Chemistry related to Artificial Metalloenzymes at University of Edinburgh

We are looking for a postdoctoral research associate (PDRA) position from the 1st September 2023 (or as soon as possible thereafter) for 24 months. Depending on the direction of the project an extension of up to a further 12 months may be possible. The PDRA will be supervised by Dr Amanda Jarvis and is based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh.

The PDRA will lead the experimental work as part of Dr Jarvis’ UKRI FLF ‘Artificial metalloenzymes as evolvable catalysts for selective chemical synthesis’. The primary objective of this grant is to develop new artificial metalloenzymes that enable the selective synthesis of any molecule either as part of in vitro cascades or in the longer term for in vivo biosynthesis.  A key objective is the development of asymmetric photocatalysis using artificial metalloenzymes.
