We’re hiring a postdoc to lead the experimental arm of an NSF-funded project exploring the network of genes that regulate nutrient sensing and signaling in yeast. The goal of the project is to generate yeast mutants in which multiple nutrient sensing/signaling genes have been knocked out and then characterize their phenotype under different media conditions in order to test and inform future iterations of a computational model describing the network. The ideal candidate will have experience with CRISPR in yeast. Familiarity with high-throughput workflows is a bonus. The position will provide training opportunities in synthetic biology, quantitative biology, high-throughput workflows, and an introduction to modeling. You’ll join a collaborative team with a state-of-the art data management and laboratory information infrastructure bridging the gap between classical genetics and systems-focused computational modeling.
