A multidisciplinary research team is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the field of biosynthesis and microbial metabolism.

We study biosynthetic pathways of Actinobacterial bioactive metabolites, focusing on unusual enzymatic activities and exploitation of the acquired knowledge to develop new compounds applicable in medicine.

We specifically aim to bring new antibiotics to treat infections caused by resistant, ESKAPE, and other clinically significant pathogens.

In addition, we study microbial metabolism and its evolutionary aspects, and the metabolome of human and animal gut microbiota and its associations with various disorders.

We expect you to conduct your own research relevant to our topics as well as participate in our current projects. You should be a highly motivated person, with an ability to motivate your colleagues and students, coordinate multidisciplinary projects, bring new ideas, and apply for additional funding.

You will be committed to improve the quality of research in the group and motivate others to do so.
