We want to hire a postdoctoral fellow to lead a project aimed at slowing down gene evolution using orthogonal DNA replication (in contrast to speeding up evolution for many of our other projects). The goal is to prevent synthetic functions from evolutionary loss, which has numerous applications in the industrial and environmental application of engineered cells. Backgrounds in yeast genetics, experimental evolution, and/or molecular biology are preferred, but any creative and motivated scientist will be considered. The position is anticipated to start in June 2015. Please e-mail Prof. Liu with your CV.
