This project is funded by an ERC Synergy grant and involves close collaborations with groups in Sheffield and Trebon.
Tasks and responsibilities
To complement our team, we are looking for a postdoc interested in the synthetic biology and adaptive evolution of photosynthesis.
We employ a large suite of different techniques ranging from genetic engineering and adaptive laboratory evolution to molecular biological, biochemical and biophysical approaches.
Interested and motivated applicants should have a strong background in microbiology and/or genetic engineering and/or photosynthesis and/or synthetic biology.
We offer a well-equipped, modern and highly interactive research environment within the LMU Biology Campus, Martinsried.
People with disabilities who are equally as qualified as other applicants will receive preferential treatment.
Applications (CV, letter of motivation and the contact details of two referees) should be sent to
