The Synthetic Biology Tools for Yeast section at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability (DTU Biosustain), at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), is seeking a skilled analytical chemist for compound identification.
DTU Biosustain is focused on developing the next generation of cell factories deploying advanced metabolic engineering techniques, and the development of bioprocesses for a sustainable production of chemicals and high value compounds.
Focus and scope
The Synthetic Biology Tools for Yeast group is focused on refactoring of plant biosynthetic pathways for human therapeutics manufacturing in microbial cells. The competencies in our laboratory, led by Prof. Jay D. Keasling and Dr. Jie Zhang, focus on the use synthetic biology to engineer microbes for production of therapeutics otherwise difficult to source. To strengthen our team’s translational R&D activities, and further advance our visions for delivery of new supply chains for bioactive natural products we seek an analytical chemist with a focus on:
The candidate will be responsible for developing and executing state-of-the-art compound identification with main focus on extraction, isolation and MS-based characterization of bioactive natural products, and support HR-MS analysis for mitigating metabolic engineering bottlenecks. The candidate will be affiliated with the analytical core team at DTU CfB and is expected to closely collaborate with a team of 5-10 researchers with expertise within strain engineering, biochemistry, pathway discovery, and synthetic biology. The candidate will be responsible for the daily operation of the analytical equipment. Key responsibilities will include:
The ideal candidate will have:
