Join C-GEM!

Open Positions:

The Blanchard Lab at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is looking for a postdoctoral scholar for a collaboration with the Cate Lab to study the kinetics of unnatural translation reactions. Interested candidates should apply directly by emailing their CV and a cover letter to Scott Blanchard. More information available here.

The Das Lab at Stanford is looking for a postdoctoral scholar for a project to use computational modeling to redesign the translation apparatus to accommodate new polymerization chemistries. The project involves close collaboration with experimentalists in the Das, Cate, Schepartz, and other C-GEM labs. An ideal candidate would have training in Rosetta computer modeling, along with demonstrated experience in modern machine learning frameworks and computational quantum chemistry. Interested candidates should apply directly by emailing their CV and a cover letter to Rhiju Das.

The Miller Lab at Yale is looking for a postdoctoral scholar for a collaboration with the Schepartz Lab to study novel approaches to natural-product-like molecules. Interested candidates should apply directly by emailing their CV and a cover letter to Scott Miller.

The Schepartz Lab at UC Berkeley is looking for a postdoctoral scholar to focus on new strategies to introduce novel, non-alpha-amino acid monomers into proteins using a remodeled translation apparatus, and will work in close collaboration with one of a number of C-GEM laboratories. The ideal candidate has a background in chemical biology, biosynthesis, metabolic engineering, and/or synthetic biology. Interested candidates should send a cover letter and CV to Alanna Schepartz.
