Postdoctoral Research Associate University of Edinburgh

We are looking for a highly motivated post-doc to work on a project at the chemistry-biology interface looking to improve the sustainability of chemical synthesis. The project seeks to design new metalloenzymes using unnatural amino acids or synthetic cofactors and to apply these catalysts in selective chemical synthesis. Initially these metalloenzymes…
