PhD and Postdoc Positions: Genetic Toolbox Development & Metabolic Engineering 1129 views

The Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems has doctoral and a postdoctoral position (m/f/d) available in Steffen Klamt’s. The group develops and applies algorithms and computational techniques for mathematical modeling and targeted modification of biological networks.

About the project:
  • The main focus is the application of computational methods for the rational metabolic engineering of microorganisms to optimize biotechnological processes.
  • For a research project (funded by The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)), combines innovative computational and experimental techniques to establish Zymomonas mobilis as an industrial platform microorganism
Study fields:
  • Biotechnology
  • Metabolic Engineering
  • Microbiology
  • Genetics
  • Systems Biology
  • Synthetic Biology
  • Biochemical Engineering / Biosystems Engineering

Experiences in the following areas are of particular advantage:

  • Genetic engineering and bioreactor fermentations of Escherichia coli, Zymomonas mobilis or other prokaryotic microorganisms.
  • Genetic toolbox development for prokaryotic organisms
  • Strain development and metabolic engineering
  • Basic Knowledge in mathematical modeling of metabolic networks or model-based metabolic engineering is not mandatory but would be a plus


Applicants to prepare a single PDF file and send it to containing the following:

  • An application letter
  • CV
  • Certificates
  • A short statement of research interests
  • A brief description of scientific achievements including a publication list (mandatory for Postdocs only)
  • Contact information for two references
