Join C-GEM!

Open Positions:

The Alabi Lab at Cornell University is looking for a talented postdoctoral scholar to design novel non-alpha amino acid monomers towards the preparation of non-natural chimeric peptides and their bioconjugates. The project involves close collaboration with the Schepartz Lab at UC Berkeley and other C-GEM laboratories. The ideal candidate should be an independent thinker with a strong background in organic chemistry, bioconjugate chemistry, and/or chemical biology.

Candidates can apply directly to the lab of interest or apply to one or more labs via the C-GEM Postdoctoral Fellowship

C-GEM seeks to hire a Synthesis Coordinator based at UC Berkeley or Yale (ad coming soon). The ideal candidate has experience with asymmetric synthesis of noncanonical amino acids and polyketide precursors and interest in working across disciplines to expand the chemistry of the proteome. This is a staff position, PhD not required.

Undergraduate students

Interested students should email investigators to inquire about academic year positions. Applications for C-GEM’s 2022 Summer Research Program will open in Fall 2021.

Graduate students

C-GEM does not directly hire graduate students. Interested students are encouraged to apply to programs that C-GEM faculty are affilated with at our member institutions.

Postdoctoral scholars

Postdocs join C-GEM in one of two ways – by applying directly to a lab in C-GEM or through the C-GEM Postdoctoral Fellowship.
