This post-doc is an experimental research work aiming at functionalizing micro-compartments and integrating them in a bottom-up approach to obtain miniaturized experimental systems mimicking living systems (here focusing on minimal metabolic functions). In the long term, we want to create large populations of microsystems to assemble them and analyse their collective properties.
