Research Intern Biochemistry Dec 1 2017

Requirements: The Venturelli lab is recruiting motivated a motivated research intern in several areas of microbial systems and synthetic biology. Areas of interest include ecological systems biology of the human gut microbiota, molecular basis of microbial interactions including metabolite interchange, design of genetic circuits for realizing novel functions in complex environments and microfluidic platforms to probe spatiotemporal behaviors of microbial systems. A B.S. or B.S.E. in biosciences or engineering is required.

Job Duties: The Venturelli lab leverages experiment and computational modeling to investigate the evolutionary design principles of microbial systems across multiple scales spanning intracellular networks to microbial communities. Biological and engineering design rules will be exploited to design genetic circuits for realizing novel functions in complex environments. Our research combines multiplexed measurements of single cells and populations with concepts from engineering and dynamical systems for systems-level characterization and design.
