Descripción de la oferta
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc to join our group of researchers that is busy exploring the huge yeast biodiversity in nature, with the aim of identifying and characterizing non-conventional yeast species with biotechnologically interesting traits. Such traits include for example the ability to grow on specific carbon sources or the capacity to produce valuable metabolites. We also work with cell factory design and development of both baker’s yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and non-conventional yeast species, where the strains are intended for various applications including bioproduction of fuels, chemicals and materials.
The major responsibility as a postdoc will be to pursue research within the scope of the project. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts, to write project reports and scientific manuscripts and to share your research results both in presentations at the division/department and at international conferences. A postdoc position at our division also include supervision of Bacherlor and Master students as well as taking responsibility for side tasks such as keeping the lab and instruments in good condition.
