Posting Summary

The Fu lab at Rutgers University-Camden seeks for a postdoctoral candidate for research projects on DNA/protein hybrid nanostructures, nucleic acids detection and functional materials. Biological systems use complex macromolecular nanostructured networks to mediate a range of cellular functions, such as biomolecule synthesis, signal transduction, and gene expression and regulation, all with high efficiency and specificity. Many of these macromolecular systems have evolved through the spontaneous self-assembly of components into highly organized spatial structures. Mimicking these structures outside of the cell requires methods that offer nanoscale control over the organization of individual network components. We aim to apply the self-assembled molecular scaffolds to the organization of biomoleuclar networks with the intention of understanding fundamental mechanisms and developing bio-mimetic systems for applications in sensing, catalysis and smart drug delivery. Research themes in our lab include self-assembly of DNA and proteins, regulatory biomolecular network, smart nanoreactor and biosensing.
The qualified candidates should have a Ph.D (or coming Ph.D) in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Bioengineering or other relevant fields. Experiences in bionanotechnology, nucleic acid chemistry and assembly, vesicle/membrane chemistry and biochemical systems are preferred.In your cover letter please briefly describe your scientific interests and credentials.
