The Yeast Metabolic Engineering group develops novel yeast cell factories for the production of sustainable chemicals and natural products. There will be applying advanced genome editing, metabolic modeling, and ‘omic data analyses for data-guided strain design. The university is looking for a motivated and talented researcher to join its research team.
The two-year-long position is within the expression and characterization of transport proteins for small metabolites. You will develop methods for expression of membrane proteins and for characterization of transport protein activity using solid-supported membrane-based electrophysiology (SURFE2R system from Nanion Technologies). In collaboration with other team members, you will apply the knowledge to create and improve yeast cell factories.
