The Company: IDENER
IDENER is a multidisciplinary research company in Computational Science and its application to optimize systems and processes. Are you interested in learning more about our company? Check this link out https://www.idener.es/
We are a team of +40 scientists and researchers exploring the limits of Computational Science in different application areas such as Industrial Technologies, ICTs, Biotechnology, Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy, Resource and Raw Materials Efficiency.
The company is located in Aeropolis Science and Technology Park (Seville, Spain). Since its foundation in 2010, IDENER is now a well-established research actor within the EU, and it is within the top-5 Spanish SMEs in terms of financed projects number and H2020 return ratios.
Our Mission & Vision.
Our team comprises PhD-holing engineers, chemists, biochemists, and biotechnologists, with a precise aim: design a new generation of green chemistry systems making the most of the latest Computational Science advances.
We believe in developing sustainable technologies with our work while enjoying the journey with our colleagues in an inspiring work environment.
The position is framed in the Biotechnology Applications Department under the umbrella of the recently started EU-H2020 project, called SECRETed. Thus, it is a multi-stakeholder multidisciplinary project with substantial participation from SMEs to fully exploit the potential of marine biotechnology and produce novel industrial products for the agrochemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and chemical sectors.
SECRETed will develop new hybrid molecules with tailor-made properties obtained from the combination of biosynthetic genes of amphiphilic compounds (bio-surfactants and siderophores) produced by marine and extremophilic microorganisms.
The new researcher will be part of our experienced researchers and project leaders who develop cutting-edge research projects.
