PhD Position (E13 TV-L, 50%, m/w/d) in Natural Products Discovery

The research group “NatResource” at the Eberhard Karls University Tuebingen is looking for a PhD student to isolate and characterize new antibacterial natural products from microbes. We are a young and highly motivated research team at the interface of natural products isolation and synthetic organic chemistry with special interest in finding new antibiotics. 

As part of Cluster of Excellence: CMFI - Controlling Microbes to Fight Infections, we seek an enthusiastic scientist with a Masters in Natural Products Chemistry, Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Microbiology, Biochemistry, or closely related disciplines. The project is focused on finding new lead compounds for the treatment of bacterial infections. Candidates are expected to be highly interested in natural products and organic chemistry. The position is initially funded for 3 years.

Interested scientists should submit their application documents (CV, motivation letter, 2 references, grade transcripts) as a single .pdf-file via email to: chambers-connor.hughesspam prevention@uni-tuebingen.de by Sept 1st 2019.
