Postdoctoral fellow: opportunity to join the laboratory of Microbial Biotechnology at University of Insubria

Opportunity to join the laboratory of Microbial Biotechnology at University of Insubria

Where: we are located in Varese, Italy, as part of the Department of Biotechnology and Life Sciences (DBSV).

Lab position: 1-year Postdoctoral fellow in the group of Microbial Biotechnology, studying the production of specialized metabolites with pharmaceutical applications in filamentous actinomycetes. Specifically, the Post-doc will work on the discovery, production, and characterization of novel glycopeptide antibiotics (GPAs), a class of antibacterial molecules used as frontline against multidrug-resistant Gram-positive pathogens. The discovery of novel GPAs will be driven by a genome mining approach, followed by the definition of the best cultivation conditions to switch on its production, its purification and a preliminary chemical and biological profiling.

Supervisor: Dr Francesca Berini

About the role: we are looking for an enthusiastic Postdoctoral researcher, with a PhD in Biotechnology, Biology, or related fields. Desirable criteria are previous experiences in the fermentation and genetic manipulation of filamentous bacteria.

Application deadline: the call will likely open in Summer 2024, with ideal starting date for the contract during Autumn 2024 or thereafter. If you are interested or if you wish to have more info, please contact me at f.berini@uninsubria.it
