Expertise of molecular and cellular assays will be utilized to characterize the downstream effects of gene editing (30%).
In addition to research, this position will offer career training opportunities to expand the Postdoc’s development in a creative and interactive environment. The Postdoc will be expected to serve as a mentor to graduate and undergraduate students, publish abstracts and manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals, as well as present at local, national, and international venues (20%).
• Expertise in synthetic biology and microbial assays (synthetic gene/construct design, genetic manipulation, protein production and characterization, cellular-based assays, etc.)
• Experience with mammalian cell culture and bacterial cell culture
• Engineer, implement, and troubleshoot a system for gene editing strategies (emphasis on CRISPR/CAS9-based systems)
• Knowledge of constructing gRNA and/or Cas9 modifications to manipulate activity
• Highly skilled in gene editing and screening, cell manipulation, and physiological characterization
• Strong proficiency in utilizing molecular and cellular assays to observe the downstream effects of gene editing
• Proven ability to work independently and in collaborative team environments
Please submit a complete curriculum vitae (CV), cover letter, contact information for 2-3 references, and proof of academic status. Applicant must have a PhD in Biology, Biotechnology/Bioengineering, Microbiology, Molecular Biology or other related disciplines with relevant experience.
