Position: Postdoc - Yeast Metabolism, Genetics and Epigenetics
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: The Enzymology & Metabolism Research Group at the LCSB is looking to hire a postdoctoral researcher to participate in a project entitled Harnessing the power of yeast genetics to elucidate the metabolism and epigenetic effects of the oncometabolite 2-hydroxyglutarate. We are seeking a highly motivated and talented scientist to investigate 2-hydroxyglutarate metabolism and epigenetic changes induced by this metabolite in the model organism Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The successful applicant will focus primarily on the metabolic aspects, while closely collaborating with a PhD student in the group focusing mostly on the epigenetic analyses
Requirements: PhD degree in microbiology, biochemistry, molecular biology or related disciplines, preferably with a focus on cell metabolism and/or epigenetics. Strong theoretical background and practical experience in yeast genetics and metabolic biochemistry. Solid computational and biostatistics skills are required
