The role

We are looking for an excellent and highly motivated experimental postdoc with interests in synthetic biology to engineer the minimal bacterium M. pneumoniae for human therapy and modulation of the lung microbiome. Our approaches include molecular, biochemical, systems biology, and protein design tool, as well as assays in animals.

About the lab

The design of biological systems group is aiming at a quantitative understanding of biological systems to an extent that one is able to predict systemic features and with the hope to rational design and modify their behaviour. This applies to any system comprising biological components that is more than the mere sum of its components, or, in other words, the addition of the individual components results in systemic properties that could not be predicted by considering the components individually. By achieving this objective, we are aiming at new global understanding and treatment of human diseases in which the target will not be a single molecule but a network.

For this purpose in the group it is developed on one hand new software and theoretical approximations to understand complex systems and on the other they do experiments to validate our predictions.

You can find more information about the group and their research projects on their website.
