Postdoc Position in Synthetic Biology at UIUC

A postdoctoral researcher position in synthetic biology is available immediately in the Lu Lab in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Our research focuses on synthetic and systems biology – the analysis, construction, and exploitation of genetic regulatory networks for function reprogramming. In particular, we are interested in engineering gene circuits by assembling and editing genes and genomes inside living bacteria for potential therapeutic interventions and health regulation. More information is available via the lab web page:

Ideal candidates for this position need to be experienced in molecular cloning and have a Ph.D. in biological sciences (microbiology, molecular biology, bioengineering, biophysics, biochemistry, etc.). Experiences in fluorescence microscopy and microfluidics are a plus but not necessary.

Salary is commensurate with skills and experience. The initial appointment is for one year and can be extended up to three years upon mutual agreement. Interested individuals please send your CV and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Ting Lu via email:
