Postdoctoral Position Available:  Laboratory for Cell-Free Systems and Synthetic Biology

Professor and PI Michael Jewett

One postdoctoral fellowship is available for up to three years, with competitive salary and travel support, in the Jewett laboratory at Northwestern University. The laboratory is a part of the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering and the Chemistry of Life Processes Institute. Our research aims to engineer biological systems for compelling applications in medicine, materials, and biotechnology. We focus on cell-free systems, with particular emphasis on protein sythesis and metabolism. We seek highly motivated individuals who are poised to develop novel technologies for building synthetic ribosomes and for cost-effective production of personalized medicines and antibody repertoires. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of this research, a solid background in biochemistry, biological engineering, chemical engineering or molecular biology is required. In addition, experiences with translation, RNA biology, yeast genetics, therapeutic protein synthesis, or ribosome display is strongly preferred. Successful candidates should have at least two publications (or pre-prints), be able to communicate and work with collaborators (students, postdocs, and faculty), and be able to carry out research and develop ideas independently.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter stating their career objectives, research interests, and ideal scenario for a postdoc, together with CV, including names and contact details of three references to Professor Jewett (m-jewett AT northwestern DOT edu).
