Joining Our Group
Inquiries regarding opportunities for postdoctoral research in our
laboratory are welcome. In general strong backgrounds in fields related
to Metabolic Engineering or Bioinformatics are required. Postdoctoral
Associates in our group are expected to work independently and provide
leadership for more junior investigators. They will be responsible
for carry a project from inception of an idea to publication. To
assist our Postdoctoral Associates in moving their careers forward, the
laboratory offers an exciting environment for those seeking to integrate
metabolic function with gene expression. Under the umbrella of Metabolic
Engineering, our group brings together specialists in biochemistry, molecular
biology, physiology, bioreaction network analysis, and bioinformatics.
Our vigorous group discussions provide insight from many angles to sharpen
the focus of each project and maximize opportunity for success.
Alumni from this lab have moved on to outstanding positions in industry
Although there is flexibility, at present we are specifically
seeking individuals with expertise in the following areas:
Mass spectrometry techniques for determining isotopic enrichment
in metabolic studies.
Molecular biology of mammalian cells - especially transfection and
Hepatic physiology and biochemistry - especially metabolic flux

MIT is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
Before joining our group as a doctoral candidate, students must be accepted
into an graduate degree program at MIT. Most of the doctoral candidates in our
laboratory are in the department of Chemical Engineering. However, we also have
researchers from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Bioengineering. If
you are interested in joining our laboratory, but have not been accepted to MIT
yet, please contact us and we will be happy to advise you in your application
