The bionanoscience and biochemistry laboratory is recruiting now a doctoral student for a fully
funded position lasting for up to 4 years. The successful candidate will be involved in the research
project to engineer protein cages as tools for production of difficult-to-express proteins. The project
offers you the opportunity to gain experience in laboratory evolution, a most powerful approach to
endow proteins with user-defined function, as well as in protein cage-based technology, a hot
research topic fueled by prospective applications in catalysis and medicine. You will be mentored by
Dr. Yusuke Azuma, (https://www.azumag.com/) as a member of the prof. Jonathan Heddle’s
laboratory, located at the Małopolska Centre of Biotechnology in the beautiful city of Krakow, Poland.
Who Can Apply:
