In 2002 he moved to the California Institute of Technology (Pasadena, USA) as a postdoctoral fellow to work on DNA-protein dimerizers with Prof. Peter B. Dervan. In 2004 he joined the Max-Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology as an independent investigator in the department of Chemical Biology (Prof. Herbert Waldmann) and the Chemistry faculty of Technische Universität Dortmund as lecturer. Hans-Dieter Arndt moved to the Friedrich-Schiller University at Jena as a full professor of Organic and Bioorganic Chemistry in 2011. His work was recognized by an Emmy-Noether Award (DFG 2004), the Thieme Journal Award (2007), the Natural Products Young Investigator Award (DECHEMA 2010) and the Orchem prize (GDCh 2010).
