Postdoc Positions

Protein Engineering, Origin of Life, Genetic Code, Artificial Enzyme Evolution


We are using in vitro and in vivo selections to create de novo proteins from large libraries of randomized polypeptides. We are also employing directed evolution to tailor existing enzymes to a variety of biomedical applications. An overarching theme of the work in our group is the use of combinatorial protein libraries to investigate the origin and evolution of functional proteins.

• One objective of our research is to create designer enzymes for biomedical applications. We are also studying our new enzymes in detail and evolve them further to improve performance, and elucidate basic principles of biocatalysis and protein evolution.

• Another objective of our work is to tackle fundamental questions related to the origin of life. Specifically, we are investigating the history and early evolution of the genetic code, and the origin of functional proteins in general.

The applicant should have a Ph.D., expertise in molecular biology and biochemistry, a strong publication record, excellent communication skills, and enthusiasm and motivation to do science in a collaborative environment.
