Research Assistant/Associate - Magnetic Resonance Studies and Molecular Modelling of The Role of Competitive Adsorption in Bio-Catalysis (Fixed Term)

A 12-month Research Assistant/Associate position is available in Prof Lynn Gladden's group in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. The project is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, the Cambridge CREATE Campus, C4T, in Singapore and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. The post-holder will be expected to spend significant periods of time in Singapore working with research partners.

The project is funded by National Research Foundation (NRF) Singapore.

The group has pioneered the use of magnetic resonance in application to characterising competitive adsorption processes in heterogeneous catalysis. In this project we wish to extend the use of this approach to study bio-catalytic conversions. The NMR data will be used to help develop and validate molecular simulations of the same bio-catalytic processes and test these predictions against real catalytic data. The post-holder will focus on the acquisition of NMR data but is welcome, and indeed encouraged, to interact strongly with the researchers focusing on modelling and catalyst development.
