Postdoc on Biophysics of the Gut: USA

The Ismagilov Lab at the California Institute of Technology is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work on projects in the area of “biophysics of the gut.” These collaborative projects aim to study the biophysical mechanisms by which polymers (e.g., dietary fibers) impact gut physiology and the microbiome.

For previous work in this research area, please see the following publications from our lab: [doi:10.1039/C9SM00791A], [doi:10.1073/pnas.1602789113], [doi:10.7554/eLife.40387.001], [doi:10.1021/acs.biomac.9b00442].

Skills required: Creativity; rigorous scientific training in design and interpretation of research; strong record of prior research accomplishments. The ideal candidate will have both experimental and conceptual expertise in Soft Matter (e.g., colloids, polymers, and hydrogels). Experience in one or more of gut physiology, animal models, and microbiology would be ideal but is not required. Candidates eligible for independent postdoctoral fellowships are encouraged to apply.

Candidates should send their CV and a brief statement of their qualifications and research aspirations to
