A postdoc position is available at Texas A&M University immediately.

The postdoc position focuses on environmental remediation researches using various state-of-art platforms including material engineering and systems biology and synthetics biology tools (genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics platforms). The ideal candidate will study various environmental contaminants and develop novel bio-based materials for bioremediation. This is a joint position among two labs and the Synthetic and Systems Biology Innovation Hub. The candidate will engage broad collaborations and work with other disciplines including renewable energy, material science, environmental engineering, and public health.  The position is expected to engineer new renewable materials and study environmental toxins using various techniques and platforms. Background in material engineering, chemical or electrocatalysis, chemistry, biochemistry, and/or analytical chemistry, in particular, with hand-on experience on material engineering and characterization is preferred.

In addition, the general lab environment is collaborative, friendly, and constructive. We are seeking highly motivated and productive scientists with a suitable background as aforementioned. The laboratory nurtures a collaborative environment with ample opportunities for grant writing, professional training, and career development routes. The laboratory is highly multidisciplinary and scientific integrated. For all positions, salary is commensurate with experience, and full-scale state employee benefits will be provided. College Station is a great place to live, offering a small-town environment near to the major cities. If you are interested in such a position, please don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Susie Dai at sydai@tamu.edu.   or Joshua Yuan, Professor, and Chair of Synthetic Biology and Renewable Products, at syuan@tamu.edu.
