    Jamey Young’s Lab at Vanderbilt University

    A postdoctoral position is available immediately to develop and test novel strategies for engineering cyanobacterial hosts for production of fuel and chemical compounds. 13C metabolic flux analysis, targeted metabolomics profiling, and molecular biology studies will be key approaches to addressing these questions. Motivation and experience will be important factors in the recruitment process. For more information about the Young laboratory, see our website: Interested applicants should send a current CV including the names of three references to: Dr. Jamey Young at:

    The Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan, is inviting applications for research-oriented faculty positions at levels of Assistant or Associate Research Fellows (equivalent to Assistant or Associate Professors). Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree plus postdoctoral training, with expertise in studies of plant-related microbial biology or plant-microbe interactions. Successful candidates will receive excellent starter funds followed by annual intramural support.

    Academia Sinica, the foremost academic institution in Taiwan, comprises 31 world-class research institutes/centers and provides active research environment with state-of-the-art resources. The Institute of Plant and Microbial Biology is a premier research institute with focused studies on functioning of plant and microbial biology ( English is the official language in scientific seminars. Proficiency in Chinese language is not essential but basic communication skill will be helpful.

    The application folder should include 1) cover letter, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) a statement of research accomplishments, and 4) future research plans. The application folder (in PDF format) and, separately, three letters of recommendation should be sent via email to:

    The Basic Algal Biology program at Synthetic Genomics Inc., is recruiting multiple Ph.D. level candidates to support our studies in fundamental algal photobiology, physiology, genomics, and genetic engineering.
    At Synthetic Genomics, Inc., we are dedicated to developing genomic-driven solutions to address global challenges.  The Basic Algal Biology program is a long-term partnership with ExxonMobil Research and Engineering which is focused on developing refinery feedstocks using photosynthetic algae.  Now in our sixth year, the program continues to make significant scientific progress and recently, to expand its budget.  In addition to a very solid team of 20+ algal biologists, the Basic Algal Biology program capitalizes on SGIs’ world-class expertise in bioinformatics, next-gen sequencing, synthetic biology, and analytical chemistry.
    I am writing to you to solicit candidates who you could recommend to fill three open positions in our program.  We are searching for strong candidates with Ph.D. level training in Phycology, Microbiology, Plant Biology, Molecular Biology, and related fields with 0-5 years of relevant postdoctoral or industrial experience.  Specifically we ask for your help in identifying individuals with expertise in:
    1.       Photosynthetic light reactions.  Measurement, dynamics, interpretation and manipulation photosynthetic light reactions.  As we continue to work on optimizing light use efficiency of mass algal cultures, specific expertise in the light reactions of photosynthesis is crucial
    2.       Generalized photosynthesis.  From the initial processes of capturing light energy, through the light-independent carbon fixation reactions, and ultimately to the storage of the resulting products.   We are interested in candidates with expertise in all the processes involved in photosynthesis
    3.       Synthetic biology, genomics, and metabolic engineering of eukaryotic algae.  Virtually all aspects of research in the Basic Algal Biology are rooted in ultimately manipulating the biology of photoautotrophs.  Candidates with strong backgrounds in algal biotechnology are of particularly interest.

    There are many advantages to working at Synthetic Genomics and specifically in the Basic Algal Biology program.  The Basic Algal Biology collaboration has solid support from both SGI and ExxonMobil.  SGI continues to attract both partners and funding to support the expanded applications of our core technologies. We have a very strong team of scientists, infrastructure, and funding which make rapid advances possible. In addition to a solid scientific foundation, SGI has an enjoyable work environment and located in La Jolla, CA we are lucky to live and work in a vibrant city and beautiful climate.

    Candidates are encouraged to respond to me directly as well as to find out more information at the Careers section of our website (  Thank you in advance for your attention.
