Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
The Lab for Synthetic Macromolecular Assemblies (PI: George Lu) at the Rice Bioengineering Department has multiple openings for postdoctoral fellows. The lab employs protein engineering and synthetic biology methods and aims to develop novel technologies for noninvasive imaging and remote control of cells for both basic research and cell-based therapies. The research takes advantage of our proximity to the country's biggest medical center and opportunities to collaborate with leading scientists in areas such as cancer immunotherapy. Rice Bioengineering is one of the top biomedical engineering departments with its graduate program consistently ranked among the top 10 in the country. The candidate will have opportunities to lead cutting-edge research projects and interact with outstanding scientists as collaborators and trainees. Please refer to the lab website for more information http://lulab.rice.edu.
The ideal candidate for the first position will have a strong background and interest in computational protein design and structure calculation. Experimental skills in protein structure determination will be considered as a bonus but not essential. The candidate should have strong written and oral communication skills, and will also be expected to aid in the supervision of junior lab members and in the preparation of research proposals. The application for postdoctoral fellowships will be encouraged, including both external and internal ones such as Rice University Academy of Fellows.
Consistent with the National Research Council's report, Convergence: Facilitating Transdisciplinary Integration of Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Engineering, and Beyond, we are seeking candidates who have demonstrated ability to lead and work in research groups that
