We invite applicants for a 3-year post-doctoral position on understanding the interfacial aspects involved in protein separation using artificial membranes. The complex nature of protein mixtures along with protein physical properties have motivated a detailed study regarding the physics governing specific separations carried out industrially. Within the Soft Matter, Fluidics and Interfaces group at the University of Twente, there is a post-doctoral researcher position available in this area.
In this project a combination of experimental and theoretical studies will be performed that will analyze and determine the underlying dominant mechanisms controlling transport. The intended outcome of this project is to possess a higher degree of insight into these mechanisms and to be able to then utilize this understanding in order to enhance separation efficiency in realistic industrial processes.
