Postdoctoral Scientist (m/f/d) Leibniz-Institut für Lebensmittel-Systembiologie (LSB), Freising

The Leibniz Institute for Food Systems Biology at the Technical University of Munich (Leibniz- LSB@TUM) , a legal foundation under civil law in Freising, is a research institution of the Leibniz Association that combines methods of biomolecular basic research with analysis methods of bioinformatics and analytical high-performance technologies to investigate the complex interplay between the human organism and food ingredients.

The research group Taste & Odor Systems Reception at Leibniz-LSB@TUM is currently looking for a scientist to start on 01.07.2021 as

Postdoctoral Scientist (m/f/d) in the field of chemical sensory science

Research project

The research group investigates the molecular basis of human taste and odor perception, its impact on food selection and the role of taste and odorant receptors in non-sensory tissues. The open position is devoted to strengthen our activities at the intersection of taste and odor reception. The project involves the use of a well-established cellular assay to identify receptors activated by food-related compounds and to characterize key-features of agonists as well as receptor-specific pharmacological properties. The development of refined as well as novel assays for chemoreceptors will be another task of this project.

Your area of responsibility includes
  • Refinement, development and running of cell-based chemoreceptor assays
  • Generation of expression constructs, cell lines and intestinal organoids
  • Teaching of co-workers, students in laboratory techniques
  • Requirements:

    The ideal applicant has
