PostDoc position: Engineering C. glutamicum strains for industrial application

We are experiencing an era of translation, shifting from a fossil based production mode to a sustainable bioeconomy. As a crucial prerequisite, novel bioprocesses using renewable resources should replace existing fossil routes to reduce the human made CO2 footprint. In this context a novel bioprocess is currently developed with an industrial partner to make biotech production happen in large-scale.

We want to foster our current strain engineering team by an experienced candidate who offers dedicated skills working with C. glutamicum. Strain engineering will build on existing producer cells that need to be further optimized for industrial application. Related works will be tightly networked with the industrial partner.

Applicants should show a pro-active attitude. You are profoundly trained for applying synthetic/molecular biology tools for strain engineering of prokaryotes, ideally C. glutamicum. You have achieved a doctoral degree in Biotechnology, Technical Biology, Synthetic Biology or similar with excellent marks.

The open position is currently limited until February 2025 and should be filled soon. Positions are quoted with E13 (PostDoc).
