Postdoctoral Researcher
Clark Research Lab (Douglas S. Clark, PI)
Dept. of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, UC Berkeley

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of California,
Berkeley seeks applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Clark Research Lab at 100%
with a start date in fall 2021.

The focus of this project will be to investigate the structure, function, and biotechnology of
unique chaperone proteins from extremophiles, including the deep-sea thermophile
Methanocaldococcus jannaschii and related methanogens. Of particular interest are filamentous
prefoldins, their role in microbial thermophily, and their potential applications.
Highly motivated individuals with a PhD in bio/chemical engineering, microbiology, or a related
field are encouraged to apply. Previous experience in the molecular biology of archaea would be
especially useful. Competitive candidates are expected to have excellent oral and written
communication skills, and a strong record of peer reviewed publications.
If you're interested, please email a cover letter and most recent CV to Christine Balolong at
