PhD Student in Artificial Metalloenzyme Engineering (m/f/d)

28.09.2021, Wissenschaftliches Personal

The PhD position in the Zeymer group is fully funded by the TUM Innovation Network "RISE". We are looking for a candidate with a strong background in either organic chemistry or protein engineering.

The Zeymer Lab is a member of the Department of Chemistry and the newly established Center for Functional Protein Assemblies at TU Munich, Germany. We engineer artificial metalloenzymes and photoenzymes for non-natural reactions by combining rational design with laboratory evolution. We also study the enzymes’ structure and mechanism with various biophysical techniques. We are currently looking for a dedicated and talented

PhD Student

who is interested in the directed evolution of catalytic metallopeptides in the context of synthetic life. The PhD position is funded through the TUM Innovation Network for Robot Intelligence in the Synthesis of Life (RISE). This multidisciplinary group of researchers aims to combine machine learning and robotics with biochemical and biophysical experiments to tackle fundamental questions about the emergence of life and the possibility of synthetic life.

Candidates with a Master’s degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry, who are highly motivated to learn about laboratory evolution and metalloenzyme catalysis are encouraged to apply. Previous practical experience in either synthetic organic chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, protein biochemistry, directed evolution, or (metallo-)enzymology will be of benefit.

If you are enthusiastic about science and wish to work on an exciting and challenging research project, please apply by e-mail to Prof. Dr. Cathleen Zeymer. The application should include a cover letter, CV, transcript of records (BSc and MSc), and contact details to request two reference letters.

Start date: 01.12.2021 (fixed-term position, funded for 4 years)
