We are looking for highly self-motivated postdocs to join our growing team. We are actively recruiting for researchers for two projects involving the use of our orthogonal replication system: 1) continuous affinity reagent evolution, 2) continuous enzyme evolution. We are also actively recruiting for a researcher interested in understanding protein evolution using mutational data generated from replicate continuous protein evolution experiments. Applicants are encouraged to contact Prof. Liu for more details.
We are looking for dedicated and creative graduate students to join our growing team. We accept graduate students primarily through the following UC Irvine graduate programs: the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program, the Chemistry Graduate Program, the Cellular and Molecular Biosciences Program, and the Mathematical, Computational and Systems Biology Program. Please contact Prof. Liu with inquiries.
We are not currently accepting applications for additional staff. Please check back later.

Our training goal is to ensure that every student and postdoc leaving the lab has the capabilities, ambition, and scientific maturity needed for an impactful career. To do this, we constantly remind ourselves of three principles:
1) Mentorship is an essential part of a good research program. Each member of the group constructs an individualized research and career development plan with Prof. Liu and has regular meetings with Prof. Liu to ensure that they are on track and developing to their full potential. Senior graduate students and postdoctoral fellows help Prof. Liu mentor junior students.
2) Excellent scientists work best in the company of other excellent scientists. We strive to recruit the best people and maintain a culture of excellence and dedication.
3) Science thrives in a fun, supportive, and interactive environment. We strive to build a lab environment full of excitement, energy, collaboration, support, and enjoyment.
