Postdoctoral Researcher in Enzyme Engineering

Aalto University - Department of Chemistry and Materials Science

Espoo, Finland

To support our team in an ongoing Academy of Finland project, the group of Bioorganic Chemistry at Aalto University invites applications for the position of a POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER in ENZYME ENGINEERING.

The position and our expectations:

The open postdoctoral position is going to start off a new endeavour in which we attempt to repurpose copper-centred monooxygenases as catalysts for new-to-nature reactions. The SweetCopper project aims at developing non-natural catalytic transformations based on fungal metalloproteins, the investigation of underlying mechanisms, and the engineering of the proteins to improve stereoselectivity and broaden the reaction/substrate scope. Key qualifications: experience in heterologous expression of fungal enzymes, protein engineering, directed evolution.

To qualify for this position, you need to check the following boxes:

  • a doctoral degree in a suitable field such as molecular biology or biotechnology;
  • a proven track record of research at a high scientific level;
  • motivation, commitment and good teamwork skills;
