Postdoctoral Position in Synthetic Organic Chemistry

The Guo Laboratory at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln is seeking a highly motivated and qualified postdoctoral candidate to work in the field of Synthetic Organic Chemistry and Chemical Biology. Applicant must have PhD in Organic Chemistry. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of publication and extensive experiences in the area of contemporary Synthetic Organic Chemistry. The successful candidate is expected to be an independent and very dedicated scholar. Candidate will be expected to work under the guidance of the principal investigator as well as to mentor graduate students and maintain appropriate experimental data. The specific focus of the open position is to synthesize small molecule probes and to develop cellular-compatible reactions for the interrogation of biological mechanisms. This position requires the candidate to independently design synthetic routes for new classes of compounds and to solve challenging synthetic problems. The candidate will have plenty of opportunities to learn new knowledge and techniques in protein engineering, synthetic biology, and biomolecular recognition. Please submit CV and contact information for 2-3 references as a single PDF file by e-mail to jguo4@unl.edu
