Karl-Erich Jaeger received his 1. Staatsexamen in biology and chemistry in 1978 and a PhD in microbiology in 1982 at Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany, where he was appointed as a research assistant at the Lehrstuhl für Biologie der Mikroorganismen from 1978–2002. He worked as a postdoc from 1989-1990 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, in the group of Prof. Dr. Robert E.W. Hancock. In 1995, he completed his habilitation in microbiology at Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. He held a lectureship for biotechnology at the Fachhochschule Bergbau of the Deutsche Montan Technologie from 1991-1993 and served as the managing director of the Lehrstuhl für Biologie der Mikroorganismen at Ruhr-University Bochum from 1995-1996. In 2001, he received a call to the chair of microbiology at Stuttgart University, and in 2002, he was appointed as director of the Institute of Molecular Enzyme Technology of Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf at Forschungszentrum Jülich. In 2003, he was appointed as a director at the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences IBG-1 of the Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH.

Karl-Erich Jaeger’s research interests are focused on enzymes and proteins from bacteria. Current research topics include the identification of novel genes using metagenomics methodology, research on regulation of gene expression, folding and secretion of enzymes as well as their purification, biochemical characterization, structure determination, optimization by rational protein design and directed evolution, and biotechnological applications.
