We are looking for 2 Research Fellows (RFs)/Post-docs to participate in an exciting multi-disciplinary research program related to fundamental discoveries of protein-based biomaterials as inspiration for sustainable and "eco-friendly" materials.

Candidates should have strong expertise in: (1) Next-generation (RNA) sequencing, bioinformatics and proteomic analyses; and (2) Protein NMR, structural biology and biophysics, as well as protein engineering. One RF will be conducting in-depth next-generation sequencing and transcriptomic analyses of protein-based biopolymeric fibers produced by living organisms. The candidate should have strong expertise in RNA-seq, transcriptomics, and bioinformatics. He/she should also have skills with modern proteomic methods such as MS/MS. The second RF should have excellent skills and knowledge in structural biology methods, especially protein NMR, Circular Dichroism (CD), and Infrared Spectroscopy. Experience in electron microscopy methods of biological samples (such as cryoEM) would be an advantage.

Both RFs will be closely working together within a dynamic interdisciplinary research group devoted to biological and bioinspired materials, comprising materials scientists, molecular biologists, chemists, and biophysicists, which all collaborate in a strongly interacting matter.

Job requirements:
a. PhDs in structural biology, genomics, bioinformatic, or bioengineering.
b. RF 1: Specialization in RNA-seq., bioinformatics, transcriptomic analysis, and proteomics.
c. RF 2: Specialization in structural biology and biophysics, in particular protein NMR, CD, FTIR, TEM (standard and Cryo). Working knowledge with protein engineering methods will also

The successful candidates will be part of a dynamic interdisciplinary research group devoted to biological and bioinspired materials, comprising materials scientists, molecular biologists, chemists, and biophysicists, which all collaborate in a strongly interacting matter.

Salary are internationally competitive at the post-doctoral level, and commensurate with experience. The program will have access to top-notch research infrastructures and the research atmosphere at NTU and Singapore in general is diverse, vibrant, and well-funded. The School of MSE at NTU is consistently ranked in the top 5 worldwide. The research will involve a substantial level of international collaboration with world-leading academic institutions.
