A Postdoc position is available at the Synthetic and Systems Biology Innovation Hub, Joshua Yuan’s lab, or Susie Dai’s lab in Texas A&M University for the most qualified candidate. We specifically looked into several areas of expertise. First, we are looking into machine learning modeling and omics data handling experience. He or she will involve in proteomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics and other large-scale dataset analysis and modeling, along with novel pathway, organelle and system design to achieve new biological functions. Broad collaboration opportunities exist. If interested, the modeling work can go beyond biological systems into chemical processes and material design. Second, we are looking in the plant systems and synthetic biology expertise. Plant genetic engineering and metabolic design experiences are desired. Proteomics and metabolomics expertise will be appreciated, but not required, as relevant training can be provided to equip the postdoc with the expertise. Third, we are looking into expertise in green chemistry. In particular, we are seeking a candidate to develop new catalytic processes, including eletro-catalytic and electro-photo-catalytic processes to integrate with biological system to achieve efficient CO2 and biomass utilization, carbon and nitrogen fixation, persistent environmental contaminant and toxin degradation, and valued product manufacturing. He or she could also integrate and build the new biological and material hybrid systems using nanomaterials and quantum mechanisms. For all areas, multidisciplinary expertise is appreciated. The general lab environment is collaborative, friendly, and constructive. We are seeking highly motivated and productive scientists with relevant 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. Salary is commensurate with experience, and full-scale state employee benefits will be provided. College Station is a great place to live, offering small town environment near to the major cities. If you are interested in such a position, please don’t hesitate to contact Joshua Yuan, Professor and Chair of Synthetic Biology and Renewable Products, at syuan@tamu.edu or Dr. Susie Dai Associate Professor at sydai@tamu.edu.
