We are looking for 2 postdoctoral researchers for a groundbreaking research project on the border of organic, medicinal, and supramolecular chemistry.
The aim of the project is to develop small organic molecules capable of selectively transporting biologically relevant anions through lipid bilayers. Such molecules may exhibit interesting anti-cancer, antibacterial and antiviral properties, and may also find applications in the treatment of numerous diseases resulting from the dysfunction of natural transporters. Within the project, we would also like to construct stimuli-responsive transporters whose activity could be controlled by pH, light, or redox potential.
Successful candidates will design and synthesize novel anion receptors, study their anion binding properties and investigate their ability to transport anions through the lipid bilayers of model liposomes.
Deadline for applications: 15 November 2021. More details in the following Announcement.
