The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology - Hans Knöll Institute - (HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics. The Transfer Group Anti-infectives
encourages talented and highly gifted candidates to apply for a
Postdoc position (Chemist)starting from November for two years initially.
The successful candidate will work within the framework of a BMBF-funded collaborative research project (www.infectcontrol.de) on the early stage and preclinical development of novel antibiotic scaffolds.
Main topics of the project will include:
- Bioanalytical method development (HPLC-MS)
- Development of synthetic approaches (total synthesis and semisynthesis) for heterocyclic and peptide antibiotics
- Analysis of structure-activity-relationships
- Structure elucidation and characterization
- Compound profiling (interpretation of in-vitro ADMET data and bioactivity)
We offer you a challenging project which involves partners from several universities, clinics, companies and contract service providers. State-of-the-art instrumentation and laboratories as well as the collaborative and constructive atmosphere at the HKI provide ideal conditions to be highly target-oriented. As a postdoc you have access to the Graduate Academy of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena which offers an excellent qualification programme. You will be hosted in the Transfer Group Anti-infectives, a cross-sectional unit with a close linkage to the application and proof of novel therapeutic concepts.
Salary (full time) is paid according to German TV-L (salary agreement for public service employees). As an equal opportunity employer the HKI is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply.
