Positions available

One postdoctoral position (till the end of 2023) addressed to a candidate with a strong background in chemistry of polymers, or knowledge in chromatography techniques aimed at the analysis of metabolite (GC-MS, and/or LCMS) is available in the laboratory “Plastic Entropy: biological solutions for global challenges”, at the Centro de Investigaciones Biologicas-Margarita Salas (CIB) in Madrid, Spain.
Staring date: July 2022.

The laboratory is focused on biodegradation of synthetic polymers via biological solutions. Our specific interest is centered in the capability of the wax worm (larva of Galleria mellonella) to degrade polyethylene, one of the most used and most resilient plastic materials.
