The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability (DTU Biosustain) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is seeking a talented and highly motivated post-doctoral researcher for engineering natural product biosynthesis in yeast.

The Center conducts research on metabolic engineering and synthetic biology of microbial and mammalian cell factories for chemical and therapeutic protein production.

The successful candidate will apply advanced synthetic biology tools for refactoring natural product biosynthesis in yeast in the Section for Synthetic Biology Tools for Yeast at DTU Biosustain, and be part of an interdisciplinary and international team developing advanced methods for strain construction and multiplex phenotyping.

The candidate will report directly to the group leader of the section and the scientific director, and will work in close collaboration with the research and technical staff involved in natural product biosynthesis in yeast. This position will also require working with part of the business development and iLoop teams to develop intellectual property, as well as attracting funding related to support start-up strategies.
