Call for application – post-doc in microbiology for design

The Soft Matters research group, Ensadlab is looking for a science-led researcher with a background in microbiology, microbial engineering, 3D bio-printing or bio-chemistry to join ImpressioVivo, -an interdisciplinary project sitting at the intersection of architecture, design and microbiology-, examining the 3D printing of bacterially-informed materials for circular design applications in an architectural context. The post-doctoral researcher will play a central role in the articulation of a bespoke method for the design of bacterially-mediated materials for the architectural and design domain. The post-doc will contribute to adapting microbiology lab protocols to a design context, investigating how they can be developed to support artistic prototyping at an object or architectural scale for bioluminescent hydrogels and bio-calcified paper waste foam materials.

The position is based in the Soft Matters research group of Ensadlab, the research laboratory of Ecole des Arts Décoratifs, with access to the Paris Sciences et Lettres University (PSL) network and partner institutions.For more information, please check the detailed call here: https://www.demarches-simplifiees.fr/commencer/post-doc-call-for-candidates-microbiology-led-posi
