Job Description:

A Postdoctoral Scientistpositionis available at New England Biolabs Inc (Ipswich, MA) to develop new technologies for mining the microbial community for novel enzymes. Our laboratory has developed MetaGPA [PMID:34747693], a framework to bridge the gap between genetic information and functional phenotype. We already applied MetaGPA to the discovery of a carbamoyltransferase, that catalyzes the formation of a previously unknown cytosine modification on DNA and RNA. The successful candidate will further develop and apply MetaGPA for the discovery and characterization of novel enzymes for a wild range of biotechnological applications notably in the field of polymer biodegradation such as plastic and chitin. This is an opportunity to combined functional genomics and data science for the discovery of enzymes for sustainability. We are looking for open-minded, independent, highly motivated, proactive, creative, and passionate researchers with excellent collaborative and communication skills and ready to be challenged with multi-disciplinary R&D projects.Primary Responsibilities:

  • Conceptualize and carry out research to support projects on the discovering and characterization of enzymes from complex environmental bio-samples.
  • Perform metagenome analysis using novel and established tools.
  • Effectively communicate findings to the scientific community through publications and presentations.
  • Interact and collaborate with members of other research divisions to further program and division goals.Required Qualifications and Experience:
    • Ph.D. in Biochemistry, molecular Biology, bioinformatics, or related field.
