The role

Research Associate, Organic Synthesis and Biocatalysis

Unlocking the potential of C-C bond forming enzymes for biocatalysis

What will you be doing?

A post-doctoral research position is available to begin as soon as possible funded by the BBSRC. The project will involve the design and synthesis of organic compounds including natural products and biosynthetic precursors to gain an in-depth understanding of polyketide biosynthesis. The knowledge gained will be used to take advantage of the biosynthetic machinery to design and synthesise new biologically-active complex molecular structures that could not be accessed efficiently using traditional chemical methods.

This interdisciplinary project will be based in the School of Chemistry under the supervision of Professor Chris Willis and in collaboration with Professor Paul Race and Dr Marc van der Kamp in Biochemistry as well as scientists at AstraZeneca in Sweden giving opportunities to gain further experience of computational methods as well as structural and synthetic biology and biocatalysis.
