There are 2 PostDoc Positions available in the BioDiscovery Institute at the University of North Texas in the Alonso Lab. These postdocs will study the function of candidate genes involved in lipid storage and stability in pennycress, a promising alternative source of aviation fuel. This is part of a new interdisciplinary project funded by the Department of Energy for 3 years. If you are interested, contact me. Please share… Keywords: Lipidomics, Plant Biochemistry, Seed Metabolism, 13C-Labeling, Fluxomics, Mass Spectrometry. Contact Ana Alonso.

We have two postdoc positions to fill in the Riedel-Kruse Lab, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of Arizona. Our research focuses on engineering multi-cellular bacterial systems while controlling their morphology, patterning, dynamics, and environmental responses. Past projects include the engineering of the first synthetic, fully genetically encoded cell-cell adhesion toolbox [Glass Cell 2018] and the first high-resolution optogenetic cell-surface patterning method (‘Biofilm Lithography’) [Jin PNAS 2018] – providing critical tools for engineering synthetic multi-cell systems.

The Scientist/Senior Scientist, Metabolomics & Biomarkers will be a key member of the Kintai Therapeutics Research and Development team. Within the Microbiome, Genomics, & Metabolomics platform, the candidate will support both metabolomics and exploratory biomarker efforts that will fundamentally enable our pioneering work in microbiome pharmacology. Since our goal is to capture a complete picture of the gut metabolome, candidates with both lipidomics and metabolomics backgrounds are highly preferred. The candidate will be expected to collaborate closely with Kintai Therapeutics team members in chemistry and biology to maximize value from the scientific platform and enable project decision making.
