The Department of Biological Sciences, one of four departments in the College of Science, has over 40 faculty, 175 graduate and 3,000 undergraduate students. Our faculty is a community of scholars dedicated to research and teaching in Ecology, Environmental Science, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Physiology, Neuroscience, Plant Biology, and Organismal-environment interactions. We offer Bachelor’s degrees in Biology, Biochemistry, Ecology, Medical Laboratory Science, and Forensic Science, and Masters and PhDs in Biology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Environmental Science. We measure our success by the success of our students and the quality of our intellectual contributions to society.
UNT has a highly diverse campus with a wide range of languages spoken in addition to English. We welcome candidates who have experience with HSI/MSIs and/or who speak Spanish, Vietnamese, American Sign Language, Chinese (Cantonese, Mandarin and other variations), Arabic, Tagalog, Farsi, French, or/and Yoruba.
The Henard Laboratory in The BioDiscovery Institute and the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of North Texas is seeking to hire a highly motivated Postdoctoral Researcher to join our team. The laboratory’s research focuses on the physiology and metabolism of methanotrophic bacteria to guide the development of biotechnologies targeting conversion of waste gas to valuable "green" products. The postdoctoral researcher will work on projects aimed at engineering methanotrophic bacteria to maximize one-carbon assimilation and conversion. We seek applicants with broad knowledge of molecular and synthetic biology tools and techniques.

- Ability to design and conduct experiments both independently and collaboratively as needed
- Excellent written and oral communication skills
- Research experience in metabolic engineering and synthetic biology
- Demonstrated experience working with non-model microbes
- Strong record of quality peer-reviewed publications
