Postdoc in Microbial Production of Cancer Therapeutics and Antipsycotics Introduction

A new postdoctoral scholar position in computational biology is available at Technical University of Denmark. The initial contract for this position is 2 years and posible to extend. Applicants should apply before March 17, 2019.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Biosustain) is seeking a talented and highly motivated post-doctoral researcher for engineering plant-derived natural product biosynthesis in yeast as part of a multi-disciplinary consortium recently funded by EU. The consortium involves World-leading laboratories within natural product biosynthesis, chemical and metabolic engineering, as well as synthetic biology of microbial cell factories for fine chemical production.

The successful candidate will apply advanced synthetic biology tools, automated strain engineering, and multi-variate data analysis for refactoring and characterizing natural product biosynthesis in yeast in the Section for Synthetic Biology Tools for Yeast at DTU Biosustain, and be an integral part of the inter-sectorial and international consortium developing advanced methods for discovery of natural product biosynthetic pathway in plants and natural product biosynthesis in yeast cell factories. The candidate will work in close collaboration with the existing research and technical staff involved in natural product biosynthesis in yeast at DTU Biosustain, as well as the international collaborators in the consortium. The position will also require working with part of the business development and translational team to develop intellectual property.

The Researcher will work in close collaboration with the other EU project scientists at in the Section for Synthetic Biology Tools for Yeast at DTU Biosustain, and with other project partners in the US and EU.
