Rutgers University has several openings for post-doctoral researchers interested in photosynthesis, nitrogen fixation, and the origin, evolution and design of proteins capable of transferring electrons (i.e., oxidoreductases). Broadly speaking, the Falkowski lab is most interested in trying to understand how light came to catalyze life – “light to life”.
Candidates proficient in bioinorganic chemistry, structural biology, microbial genomics, bioinformatics, molecular evolution, and/or synthetic organic chemistry are encouraged to apply to work with a team of researchers interested in understanding the biophysical aspects of photosynthesis and early evolution of protein catalysis. The prospective candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, brief statement of skills and career goals and names of three references to Prof. Paul Falkowski (email@example.com). The research is funded by Rutgers University Office of Academic Affairs (for two years with the possibility of three) and is not grant generated; therefore, the position offers the freedom to work in the Falkowski lab on areas of mutual interest.
