Do you want to develop the next generation of yeast cell factories? We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher interested in optimizing yeast strains for the formation of natural products. You will be able to apply state-of-the-art synthetic biology tools and technologies including metabolite biosensors, CRISPRi libraries and droplet microfluidics cell sorting joining a vibrant team of international scientists.

Information about the project
The project is embedded in a research group that focuses on the development of synthetic biology tools for yeast metabolic engineering. It is funded by the Swedish Research Council. The Division of Systems and Synthetic Biology at the Chalmers University of Technology is one of the world leading research groups in systems biology of metabolism. Our research interests involve a wide range of activities from understanding the fundamental operational principles of metabolism and studies of metabolic diseases, to highly applied research directed towards development of new cell factories for the production of valuable chemicals.

-The details of the departmental research activities may be found here . 

Major responsibilities
We are seeking a highly motivated, creative and independent post-doctoral candidate interested in yeast synthetic biology. Your major responsibilities are to develop and test novel scientific concepts, analyze and discuss your results, communicate your research in different settings, and to work in close collaboration with other team members.

Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform your own research in a research group. The position also includes teaching on undergraduate and master's levels as well as supervising master's and/or PhD students to a certain extent. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

To qualify for the position of postdoc, you must have a PhD degree in a biological field with a strong background in synthetic biology. Experience with yeast genetic engineering is a must. You should have strong skills in molecular biology, metabolic engineering, data analysis, statistics, and communication of scientific results. Experience with CRISPR technologies, GoldenGate and Gibson cloning, flow cytometry, FACS, droplet microfluidics, analysis of next generation sequencing data, HPLC, GC-MS is a bonus.

The employment is open for candidates having obtained a PhD degree normally within no more than three years.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. Swedish is not a requirement but Chalmers offers Swedish courses. 

Contract terms
This postdoc position is a full-time temporary employment and limited to a maximum of 3 years. 

We offer
Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg .
