Positions available

Postdoctoral positions in Plastic Biodegradation by biological systems

Two postdoctoral position (24 months) addressed to candidates with a strong molecular biology/biochemistry background are 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: no later than January 2021.

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