Application Deadline:
We present a unique and exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral researcher to leverage the power of bacterial genetics/synthetic biology to help meet our national need for renewable energy. The postdoc will develop genetic and synthetic biology tools for several bioenergy-relevant α-Proteobacteria (e.g., Zymomonas, Rhodobacter, and Novosphingobium), and will have a primary mentor in Jason Peters—who has developed state of the art CRISPR tools for bacterial functional genomics—and a secondary mentor in Tim Donohue—an established investigator with extensive experience in metabolic lifestyles and systems biology of α-Proteobacteria.
