Staff Scientist/Postdoc: Synthetic and Molecular Biology
The Kondrashov lab is looking for an experienced molecular and/or synthetic biologist to spearhead a series of experiments focusing on the study of the genotype to phenotype map (fitness landscape). The main directions of research include the study of deep mutational scans and other synthetic libraries to probe the structure of fitness landscape of various proteins and more complex genotypes. Development of the scientist’s own research direction is encouraged and training and supervision of molecular work of junior scientists and graduate students is expected.
Candidates should have extensive experience of molecular work, preferably including working with high throughput techniques, next gen seq, mutational and synthetic DNA libraries, cloning.
The position is at OIST in Okinawa, Japan, salary competitive and negotiable, long-term contracts available, possible starting dates in early 2022 and later. Applicants should send their CV and statement of purpose to Fyodor Kondrashov (firstname.lastname@example.org). The application should also include a 1 page description of a fitness landscape or synthetic biology project you may wish to undertake independently and the rationale why you may want to do it.
