The position is funded by a grant from the Independent Research Fund Denmark. Responsibilities and tasks Fungi of the genus Aspergillus are of large economic importance due to their widespread application in industry and their natural capabilities as highly efficient cell factories. In particular, the Aspergilli are natural enzyme producers, and preferred hosts for heterologous enzyme production, but some species also play roles in plant, animal, and human pathogenicity. All known species produce a wide range of bioactive compounds. This project is a part of our long-term efforts to whole-genome sequence the entire fungal genus of Aspergillus, more than 350 species, and to utilize this information for both fundamental and applied research, thereby building superior fungal cell factories and fungal products for the future. This postdoctoral position offers the unique opportunity to: Qualifications
