Dear Colleagues,

MetGen Oy has an interesting position opening in industrial biotechnology.

MetGen, a Finnish biotech company developing and producing industrial enzymes. Our core competence is in enzyme engineering, application testing, and efficient and cost-effective production, mostly in bacterial hosts. We have been very successful in developing and supplying a number of unique enzymatic solutions for our customers in bio-based industries.

An important part of MetGen’s activities is innovation, research, and development. MetGen is active and visible in European Union Horizon 2020 program, has numerous projects and collaboration partners in European projects alone. One of the most important achievements in the EU projects is the 2018 Horizon 2020 Flagship project (SWEETWOODS https://spinverse.com/unique- bioeconomy-project-raises-21- million-in-funding-we-produce- with-wood-what-used-to-be- made-with-oil/).

With MetGen’s integrated biorefinery technologies moving forward to industrial scale, we are also looking forward to strengthening our expertise in the area of filamentous fungi. To this end, MetGen is opening a new lab in the Netherlands (Brightlands Chemelot campus) to focus on industrial fungal strains development for cellulase cocktails and other industrial enzymes production.

New experts are needed to bring the new Dutch office to life. We are offering an exciting position in cutting-edge biotech as well as a front-row seat to next wave of industrial biorefining.

The potential candidate would be a scientist knowledgeable in fungal biology and genetics; having a Ph.D. in a related topic is a strong advantage. Also, experience in CRISPR-CAS9 technology is a great plus.

The successful candidate will carry out technical leadership and hands-on work in fungal strains development for industrial enzymes production. The career path leads to management of associate scientists/technicians in the near future, providing an opportunity to lead projects that improve the production/performance of industrial enzymes.

The successful candidate will be employed in the Dutch permanent establishment of MetGen Oy and according to the Dutch employment law.

If you are interested to learn more do not hesitate to contact me.

Feel free and welcome to share this opportunity with your colleagues, students, other relevant people.

Best Regards,

Probiotics are mostly useless and can actually hurt you
Probiotics are living micro-organisms that are taken by millions of people to boost their microbiome or to restore their gut ecosystem after a dose of antibiotics. Yet questions remain about whether they actually work.

Moćni mikrobi – prikaz knjige Mighty Microbes – The Amazing World of Microorganisms

Skupina znanstvenika i popularizatora znanosti iz Nizozemske se s ovom idejom pozabavila kroz fundaciju Microcanoni, nizozemsku inačicu projekta naziva „Što doista trebate znati o mikrobiologiji“ još 2011. Ta verzija prezentirana je i u amsterdamskom muzeju Artis Micropia, a djelo na engleskome čiji vam prikaz donosim je korak dalje koji je ova skupina ljudi poduzela u ulozi urednika knjige s naslovom Mighty Microbes i podnsalovom The Amazing World of Microorganisms. Osmislili su građu podijeljenu u devet tematskih cjelina, a unutar svake je pet do deset poglavlja (tema) za koje su kao autore ili suautore odabrali znanstvenike koji su sudjelovali u ključnim otkrićima ili su istaknuti stručnjaci u tom području.
