The Biotechnology and Bioengineering group directed by Prof. Martin Fussenegger at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE) of ETH Zurich in Basel is recruiting a Post-Doc for research projects in the field of Synthetic Biology-inspired cell-based therapies.

The D-BSSE is the first truly interdisciplinary research department of the ETH Zurich where theory, experimental biology and engineering groups team up to foster advances in Systems Biology, Biotechnology and Synthetic Biology. With its headquarters and laboratories in Basel, Switzerland, the D-BSSE is situated in the heart of the Biovalley, a tri-national region hosting 40% of the global life science industry including several pharma giants, providing a unique environment for high-leverage translational research.


Job description

Our group uses state-of-the-art Synthetic Biology principles to engineer human cells and develop cell-based therapies for the treatment of cancer as well as metabolic, neurodegenerative, autoimmune and infectious diseases. Please consult our webpage and published work for further information.

The projects involve developing novel synthetic biology-inspired engineering principles to program primary human cells and shape biomedical applications of the future. In addition, our department will move to a new building with a GMP facility supporting translational research.


Your profile

You are exceptionally motivated to work at the interface of cell biology and synthetic biology and highly skilled in standard molecular and cell biology techniques and the cultivation and engineering of primary mammalian and human cells. Additionally, we expect an outstanding/strong publication record as well as the ambition to pursue an academic career or initiate spin-off activities.
