Science jobs from Duke University:
Two postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Lingchong You lab at Duke University. In these projects, we use a synthetic-biology approach to examine the evolutionary dynamics of programmed cell death in bacteria and its implications for understanding bacterial responses to antibiotic treatment, the design principles underlying self-organized pattern formation, and the impact of dispersal on the survival and maintenance of microbial communities. For these projects, we primarily use E. coli as the model organism.

The ideal candidate should have recent PhD training in microbiology, evolutionary biology, physics, applied mathematics, or engineering. Relevant expertise includes experimental microbiology, quantitative modeling, and/or microfluidics.

If interested, send your CV and a brief research statement to Lingchong You by email at you (at) Also arrange at least two recommendation letters to be submitted by email.
