Filamentous phage (virus) with organic/inorganic hybrid for energy storage and biosensor applications has been investigated in Nanomedicine team of KIST-Europe. To achieve better power storage capabilities or a better efficiency of energy harvesting, phages are modifying in a various methods including genetic/chemical modifications. In addition, various analytical methods have to be developed and interdisciplinary studies have to be performed in order to characterize organic/inorganic hybrid biomaterial properties.
In your task, you will investigate stability of formulation or materials by electrical engineering studies. Therefore, you will employ a multiply of established analytical techniques (e.g., UV-Vis spectroscopy, Impedance measurement, cyclic voltametry, QCM-D, AFM, SEM and others). Further on you will apply and evaluate new biomaterials based on modified phage for the characterization of biosynthetic hybrid.
Internship positions are available immediately at KIST-Europe in Saarbruecken. You are currently studying electrical chemistry or analytical science with master course in chemistry. Knowledge about E.coli cultures is a bonus but not prerequisite. English language skill is required for effective communication. Please mention availability of expected duration for working. Interested candidates please send a CV to Dr. Chang Hoon Nam, chang(a)kist-europe.de or Dr. Young Jun Kim, youngjunkim(a)kist-europe.de
