For an industrial led R&D project, we are looking for 2 Postdocs (m/f/d) in the field of: Biocatalysis/ Enzyme engineering & Structural bioinformatics. Within an interdisciplinary team of four scientists at TUM together with several biotech companies the project will focus on the design of new biocatalysts. By the combination of protein structure prediction, high throughput enzyme production and data generation as well as data interpretation using advanced methods of artificial intelligence new enzymes should be developed in a recursive cycle of synthetic biology for so far unknown reactions. The new biocatalysts will then be applied in large scale biotransformation.

Your profile

• Above-average master's degree and doctorate in biochemistry, chemistry, biotechnology, bio-informatics or related fields
• Experience in biocatalysis, enzyme engineering, protein chemistry, structural biology, bioin-formatics or related fields
• Experience with publication of research results and in project proposal writing
• Scientific curiosity, ability to work in a team and self-motivated style, organizational skills and willingness to take on responsibility
