The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute – (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.
Talented and highly qualified candidates are invited to apply for a position in the Junior Research Group Evolution of Microbial Interactions as a
for two years initially.
Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Dictyostelium discoideum
This project aims to develop the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum into a production platform for secondary metabolites of pharmaceutical importance.
The successful candidate will investigate the molecular and biochemical background of the social amoeba Dictyostelium discoideum and will develop methods to measure and enhance the production of heterologous secondary metabolites.
The main topics of the project may include:
The successful candidate will be hosted in the Junior Research Group Evolution of Microbial Interactions led by Dr. Falk Hillmann. The aim of the group is to conduct innovative, cutting-edge research on amoebae as models for virulence and as a new host organism for the production of natural products. The Leibniz-HKI is embedded in the outstanding scientific environment of the Beutenberg Campus providing state-of-the-art research facilities and a highly integrative network of life science groups. We offer a multifaceted scientific project with excellent technical facilities, a place in a dynamic, committed team, as well as strong scientific collaborations.
Salary is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). As an equal opportunity employer, the Leibniz-HKI is committed to increasing the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply. The anticipated start date is November 1st, 2021.
Complete applications in English should include a cover letter, a CV containing a complete list of publications, a brief statement of research experiences, the addresses of two possible referees, and should be submitted via the Leibniz-HKI online application system. The deadline for the advertisement is October 20, 2021, but applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.Meer informatie
