Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are among the most important classes of contaminants in the environment. They especially accumulate in anoxic sediments and are persistent in groundwater. We now want to elucidate specific enzyme reactions in the anaerobic degradation pathway of naphthalene by sulfate-reducing bacteria. Your task will include the cloning, heterologous expression and characterization of novel enzymes. The project goal is to close knowledge gaps in the degradation pathway starting from the anaerobic carboxylation of naphthalene to the central metabolism.
Your profile:
We expect a master degree in biology/biochemistry, water science or related disciplines. Experience with protein biochemistry, molecular biology and protein purification is expected. Of special advantage would be experience in anaerobic microbiology and analytics.

Start of position:           as soon as possible
Contract period:            36 months
Working time:                65 %
