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%. The position is available immediately until a suitable candidate is found.

The focus of the project will be to employ thermostable protein building blocks to create 2D and 3D biomolecular assemblies with novel chemical, electronic, and structural properties. The groundwork for such systems is described in Glover et al., Nat. Commun., 7, 11771 (2016). Using his or her experience in protein engineering, expression, and purification, the successful applicant will engineer and assemble protein components, such as bioactive filaments and biospecific connectors, into nanoscale constructs. Another aim will be to engineer a microbial production host for programmable biosynthesis, secretion, and assembly of these nanostructures.

Highly motivated individuals with a PhD in bio/chemical engineering or related field are encouraged to apply. Competitive candidates are expected to have excellent oral and written communication skills, and a strong record of peer reviewed publications.
