Open Positions

Postdoctoral Fellow, Bioanalytical chemistry

Candidates are sought for a project focused on ultrasensitive electrochemical biosensing using a novel nanostructured, chip-based platform. A number of subprojects are underway focused on the detection of disease biomarkers, and the current aim is the detection of these analytes in clinical samples. Experience with electrochemistry, surface modification, biosensing, or nanofabrication is required, along with evidence of prior productivity and high-impact publications.

Postdoctoral Fellow, Chemical Biology

Candidates are sought for a project focused on engineering mitochondria-specific peptides. The current focus of this work is obtaining an understanding of how the chemical properties of peptide-based compounds promote specific organellar localization, and the eventual goal of this work is to control trafficking of pharmaceutically active compounds within the cell, and to elucidate new biochemical pathways in mitochondria. Experience with chemical synthesis/characterization and/or cell biology is desired, along with a demonstrated track record of productivity including high impact publications.
