Postdoc positions in Computational Strain Design (BB-461FA)
Found in: Neuvoo DK
Are you a highly motivated researcher with an interest in computational approaches to strain design and experience in microbial molecular biology, and would like to join our international research center, The Novo Nordisk Foundation for Biosustainability (DTU Biosustain) at the Technical University of Denmark?
Then we may have an interesting opportunity: We are looking for two colleagues in the newly established Strain Design Unit, headed by DTU Biosustain CEO Prof. Bernhard Palsson. This central unit is building cell factories for the various application areas of the Center.
In the Strain Design Unit, we are developing microbial strains for a host of applications, including small molecule production, bioactive compound production, and microbial foods through a combination of experimental and computational design approaches.
Responsibilities and tasks
As computational strain designer, you will build computational workflows for modeling and for omics data analysis for target strain designs. The position requires that you work closely together with DTU-Biosustain’s Principle Investigators and design teams to coordinate schedules and goals for design projects.
Specific tasks include:
At DTU Biosustain we develop the next generation of sustainable biotechnologies using synthetic biology techniques. We create novel production methods and technologies as a foundation for the development of new environmentally friendly products, more energy efficient manufacturing processes, new medical treatments, climate friendly farming, etc.
