(06) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Post-doc on modeling of two-phase flow in novel water electrolyzers

You will be a part of a ‘Grand Solution’ project with academic and industrial partners working on development of new foam-like electrodes to minimize cost of green hydrogen production.

Green hydrogen is a pillar of green energy transition. The ambition to reach net zero emission means that the production capacity of green hydrogen needs to increase multiple times in the coming years. Among technologies used to that end, alkaline electrolyzers are the most mature option; however, there is a clear room for improvement of their energy efficiency. The current project aims to develop a new porous electrode concept, and modeling provides a basis for understanding and optimization of the performance of this novel concept.

Your tasks in the project consist of development/improvement of numerical solvers for two-phase flow and mass transfer, conducting the simulations, analyzing the results, communicating and discussing the findings with project partners, and disseminating the results in form of articles, presentations, and the like. Numerical simulations are mostly done using OpenFoam, but use of other open-source research solvers can be considered.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc: De novo protein design for neuroscience

Recent improvements in machine learning have dramatically improved the accessibility of de novo protein design. In this project, we seek to exploit these developments to interrogate the role and mechanisms of receptor signalling in neuronal plasticity.

The center of Excellence for “Protein in Memory” seeks to understand the molecular basis for memory with an emphasis on protein mechanism. Recent developments in protein structure prediction (e.g. AlphaFold2) and protein de novo design (e.g. RFDiffusion) have opened new possibilities for probing such mechanisms. The project will seek to use existing algorithms to new biological problems and is thus not focused on development of computational methods. We wish to generate small protein binders against a range of important neuroscience targets and use these for mechanistic studies in cellular models. There will be considerable room for the successful candidate to shape the project within the overall project theme. Further details about the project will be provided for short-listed candidates.

(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc Position in DNA Nanotechnology

We are looking for a motivated, creative, and flexible candidate interested in conducting research within the interdisciplinary fields of DNA Nanotechnology.
The candidate should have a PhD degree within the broad field of (bio)chemical sciences and have experimental experience in DNA nanotechnology.

The focus of the project is on the functionalization of nanowires with DNA and their subsequent immobilization within DNA nanostructures. These structures will undergo characterization through Atomic Force Microscopy and Transmission Electron Microscopy.

The project will entail the placement of various DNA-functionalized nanomaterials within the gaps between two nanowires on a surface. Consequently, expertise in bioconjugation is highly desirable, as the project includes bioconjugation of DNA with various proteins, molecules, and nanoparticles. In collaboration with other researchers, the immobilized structures will be integrated onto patterned microelectronic surfaces to monitor conductivity between the nanowires.

The long-term goal is to refine these designs for single-molecule sensing applications. The project includes collaboration with Professor William Shih’s group at Harvard University and the Solid-State Physics group led by Professor Peter Bøggild at DTU.
