POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, ENGINEERING BIOLOGY FOR METAL NANOMATERIALS, Biological Engineering-Voigt Research Group, to assume a position that will have a near-term impact on the production of metal nanocrystals for integration into a device with an industrial partner. The research goal is to engineering strains to optimize the manufacturing and control of the titer, quality, and structure of the materials. The project is part of the BioMADE manufacturing institute run by the Engineering Biology Research Center, a DoD-funded consortium to develop biotechnology.
REQUIRED: a Ph.D. in an engineering field. .
PREFERRED: experience with genome engineering, metabolic engineering, and strain engineering for the production of nanomaterials (e.g., experience with Magnetospirillum or yeast/E. coli strains), and techniques from material science. Job #19189
