Metabolic Engineering Scientists Allylix
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED Allylix has positions available in metabolic engineering for research scientists with varying levels of experience. Metabolic engineering research scientists will characterize biological pathways and constituent enzymes for the production of target molecules in genetically engineered yeast. The primary duties will be to evaluate strains and processes for the production of renewable chemicals by analysis of carbon flow and assay of critical enzymes and metabolites. Scientists will design and implement assay methodologies for the relevant enzymes and metabolites, determine bottlenecks in carbon flux, and participate in developing strategies, strains and processes to overcome those bottlenecks. Extensive knowledge of biochemical pathways and enzymology, as well as a broad, genomic and proteomic view and approach to yeast biology is essential. A PhD in metabolic engineering, microbiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, synthetic biology, or related discipline is required. Ideal candidates will have extensive experience in enzymology, protein purification, metabolic flux analysis, genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics and a thorough understanding of microbial genetics and physiology. Strong analytic chemistry and biochemistry skills utilizing various spectroscopic and chromatographic techniques are highly desirable.
Research assistants and associates working under the supervision of research scientists will implement characterization and analysis of strains and processes to assist in development of strategies for high level production of chemicals by fermentation. These positions will require a BS or higher biochemistry or other life sciences, preferably with several years of industrial research experience and knowledge of laboratory methods in protein purification, enzyme and metabolic assays, chromatography, analytical chemistry and handling, maintaining, and cultivating microorganisms.
