Open Positions

PhD positions

If you are enthusiastic about science and wish to work on an exciting and challenging PhD project in the field of enzyme design and evolution, please apply by e-mail to Prof. Dr. Cathleen Zeymer.

The application should include a cover letter, CV, transcript of records (B.Sc. and M.Sc.), and contact details to request two references. You need a Master’s degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry. Previous practical experience in either synthetic organic chemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, protein engineering, biocatalysis, enzyme design, directed evolution, or (metallo-)enzymology will be of benefit.

Postdoc positions

Talented and motivated postdoc applicants with a strong background in either organic chemistry, biochemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, enzymology, computational protein design, protein engineering, or biocatalysis are encouraged to contact Prof. Dr. Cathleen Zeymer by e-mail. Please, send your CV and briefly describe your research interests.

Postdocs are expected to apply for fellowships, such as TUM, MSCA, HFSP, EMBO or Humboldt. Of course, we will support you with the application and write the grant proposal together with you.

Master and semester projects

Motivated undergraduate students interested in joining the group for a semester project, Bachelor’s thesis, or Master’s thesis are encouraged to approach the members of the Zeymer group directly.
