Location: Bloomington, Indiana
Internal Number: 16025
Department: IU Bloomington Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry consists of a well-rounded research community with cutting-edge expertise in a wide variety of modern disciplines including analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, materials chemistry, and biochemistry.
The Lewis Lab in the Department of Chemistry at Indiana University is accepting applications for a postdoctoral research position. The position offers an opportunity to develop and apply cutting- edge protein engineering techniques to enable artificial metalloenzyme and non-native metalloenzyme catalysis. The successful applicant will use a deep understanding of organic and organometallic chemistry, combined with state-of-the-art methods directed evolution, next gen sequencing, and laboratory automation to develop (artificial) metalloenzymes for new chemical transformations. Motivated applicants with PhD training in any area of chemistry or biochemistry will be considered. Experience with either molecular biology or synthetic chemistry is strongly preferred.
The Lewis Lab is a dynamic multidisciplinary laboratory environment. The successful applicant will play an integral role within our growing team of chemists, biochemists, and protein engineers and will emerge with a skill set that is equally relevant to academia and industry. Trainees receive regular guidance and feedback to ensure progress is made toward their career goals, whatever those may be. Trainees are also afforded the scheduling flexibility needed to maintain an appropriate work life balance and a safe laboratory environment in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Experience with organic synthesis and methodology development is essential. The preferred candidate will have a deep understanding of selective catalysis.
