Postdoc - Protein Design
Job posting number: #7072655
Posted: November 28, 2020
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionHosseinzadeh lab (www.parisahlab.org) has an open postdoctoral position for individuals interested in joining a collaborative team to work on exciting and impactful projects at the cutting edge of protein engineering.
This is a full-time position that offers a great opportunity for performing highly interdisciplinary and cutting-edge research, career development through one-on-one mentorship, membership in a large scientific community (RosettaCommons) and a collaborative and vibrant research community (The Knight Campus), and involvement in setting up the culture of a newly established lab. We are located at the brand new building for the Knight Campus center for accelerating scientific impact.
Our lab integrates methods from computational biology, chemistry, and protein design to build novel computational and experimental tools for understanding and manipulating biological systems. Some exciting research areas in the lab are:
(a) Predicting peptides behavior in solution by expanding the computational peptide design methods we previously developed;
(b) Designing novel functional proteins building upon our previous success in designing enzyme mimetics;
(c) Controlling cellular functions using small molecule signals.
We are excited to work with researchers from a variety of scientific backgrounds. We are specially looking for candidates with expertise in one of the following areas: Protein Design, Synthetic Biology (especially high throughput screening and sequencing), and Computational Biology (especially ML/DL applications in biology or chemistry). Our lab is also dedicated to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in STEM, and we look forward to working with new members to continue our efforts in this direction.
The Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact (Knight Campus) is a billion-dollar initiative designed to fast-track scientific discoveries and the process of turning those discoveries into innovations that improve the quality of life for people in Oregon, the nation and beyond. The Knight Campus will reshape the higher education landscape in Oregon by training the next generations of scientists, forging tighter ties with industry and entrepreneurs, and creating new educational opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students.
