Post-doc position in Structural Systems and Synthetic Biology in the Levy Lab

We’re looking for two highly motivated postdocs to join our interdisciplinary lab. The overarching goal of our research is to characterize general principles by which proteins self-organize in space and time. In this endeavor, we develop computational as well as experimental approaches and bridge different fields of biology, which include:

  • Structural Bioinformatics and Protein Networks
  • Structural Biology & Biochemistry
  • Yeast Biology and Lab Automation
  • Synthetic Biology and Protein Design
  • Protein and Proteome Evolution
  • High-throughput Confocal Microscopy

Examples of projects include the design of protein condensates with unique functions and tunable phenotypes, the creation of chaperones based on non-chaperone proteins, or characterizing protein evolution across 1,000 yeast strains.

Our lab is an outstanding place to transition from wet-to-dry or dry-to-wet work.

The ideal candidate should be curious and independent with strong analytical skills and have a Ph.D. in biological sciences (wet- and/or dry), chemistry, or physics.

If interested, get in touch by email (, and explain your motivation to join our lab.
