Molecular Biology Postdoctoral Job Opening @ Ghent University Belgium

Job description

Ghent University is currently looking for a highly talented Postdoctoral researcher willing to apply a Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Individual Fellowships (IF) for a period of 2 years. The Centre for Synthetic Biology (CSB) is a dynamic research group at the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering of Ghent University. We recently started a new and emerging research line on extracellular transport over biological membranes in Industrial Biotechnology. The goal is to both examine fundamental aspects of transporter enzymes like there specificities towards different substrates and catalytic properties and at the same time develop platform systems for advanced export in Industrial Biotechnology. To start with, we will focus on ABC-type of transporters from yeast, but other suggestions are welcomed as well.

For boosting this research, we are looking for a highly skilled and talented postdoc with relevant experience in the above mentioned field. We cannot offer a fixed position at this time, but will support the application for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Individual Fellowships (IF) for a period of 2 years. The deadline for this call is September 14th 2017. Eligible candidates should not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Belgium for more than 12 months in the 3 years before the call deadline.
