The planned work will aim to elucidate the biosynthetic pathway of a natural fungal metabolite with aromatic properties. The knowledge of the involved genes and gene clusters will be exploited to control and increase the production of this metabolite of industrial interest in a context of sustainable development.
- Identification of precursors and metabolic intermediates (GCMS,HPLC)
- Identification of the involved genes and elucidation of the pathway
- Optimization of the fermentation process (possibly by metabolic engineering techniques)
- Co-supervision of a doctoral student
PhD in Microbiology, Bioengineering, Metabolic Engineering, Biochemistry or a related field.
- Experience in Bioinformatics, Synthetic Biology and/or chromatography. Skills in study of biosynthetic pathways, including fungal ones, will be an advantage.
- Strong aptitude for autonomy but also excellent team spirit
- Good communication skills in English or French.
This project will benefit from close collaboration with an SME specialized in the production of natural flavors. It is part of the Biocatarom program, selected by the Interministerial Fund for Innovation (FUI) (www.axelera.org/actualites/projet-biocatarom/). The research will be conducted under the direction of Véronique Alphand (DR CNRS) at the Institute of Molecular Sciences of Marseille (iSm2, Aix Marseille University) within the Biosciences team. At the interface of Chemistry and Biology, this interdisciplinary team is made up of 25 permanent researchers of varied skills (Molecular biologists, Microbiologists, Spectroscopists, Biochemists, Chemists, ...).
