Postdoctoral researcher – Cell line engineering

Technologie‐Transfer‐Initiative GmbH (TTI GmbH), in collaboration with the Institute of Cell Biology and Immunology (IZI) at the University of Stuttgart, is seeking a highly motivated

postdoctoral researcher

with an interest in the development of CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovary) cells for the production of biopharmaceuticals.

The project is funded by Boehringer Ingelheim and is part of their industrial‐academic collaborations. The focus of the project is on the production of genetically engineered CHO cells with improved titer and specific productivity through the development of novel methods and strategies for fine‐tuned control of the unfolded protein response. The candidate will work with genome editing and other synthetic biology tools to produce highly productive cell lines with predictable performance at an industrially relevant scale. We offer work in a dedicated research team at the interface of academia and industry. The workplace for this project is the laboratory of Angelika Hausser at the Institute of Cell Biology and Immunology, and the employer is TTI GmbH, both located at the University of Stuttgart.

The Institute of Cell Biology and Immunology is a leading international institution with stateof‐the‐art equipment, competitive projects, and the possibility to work in an inspiring collaborative environment. The full‐time position is available starting in October 2021 and is funded for two years. The employment contract is issued according to TV‐L (E13).


Highly motivated individuals holding or about to obtain a PhD with a strong interest in the development of cell lines for the production of biopharmaceuticals are invited to apply for this position. We expect theoretical knowledge as well as practical experience in cell biology and molecular biology, very good English skills, team spirit and the ability of working independently. Disabled candidates with equivalent qualifications will receive preferential consideration. Women are especially requested to make an application.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, a short CV including their publications, diploma (MSc/PhD), and the contact details of two referees by email to Angelika Hausser (angelika.hausser@izi.uni‐stuttgart.de).
