At Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany within the Self-Organizing Systems Lab the following position is available

Postdoctoral Researcher - Synthetic Biology (m,f,d)

Full-time, initially limited to 2 years

We are looking for an outstanding individual to drive a visionary synthetic biology project poised to make an impact in oncology. With its emphasis on well-characterized and standardized parts, synthetic biology is considered the engineering approach to building molecular systems. It enables the creation of entirely new molecular functionality in a modular and systematic fashion. The project aims to design intelligent therapeutic gene circuits that can detect and regulate pathophysiological expression of non-coding RNA in tumor cells in a precise and reliable manner. Computational experts in the hosting lab will support the design of those circuits through data analysis, mathematical modeling and machine learning. The project is a joint venture cooperation between TU Darmstadt and Belgian Biotech Studio, eureKASYNBIO (part of the investment company eureKARE) with its special focus on synthetic biology. The selected candidate will be employed by the joint venture and will be located at TU Darmstadt for an initial period of two years. The candidate is given the opportunity to take a leading role in the formation of the envisioned startup company. 

Your Profile:

  • Ph.D. in cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biotechnology or related field
  • Experience in common molecular and cellular biology techniques (especially cloning, mammalian cell culture), ideally with focus on oncology or synthetic biology
  • Motivated team player with an entrepreneurial mindset

What we offer:

-           Inspiring international and interdisciplinary working environment

-           Excellent lab facilities, network of clinical partners

-           Attractive training programmes for employees of the TU Darmstadt
