The Birnbaum and Gifford laboratories, based at the Koch Institute at MIT, are seeking highly qualified candidates to fill a full-time postdoctoral associate position. This postdoc will be a member of a team aiming to combine combinatorial biology and computational approaches to enable the next generation of molecular design. Our projects utilize a combination of computational experiment design, protein engineering, and high-throughput approaches to experimental molecular biology, and benefit from highly integrative machine learning.

The postdoctoral associate in this position will primarily be responsible for developing methodology to enable high throughput protein mutagenesis and selection approaches to generate and analyze repertoire-scale protein-protein interaction data with high-throughput sequencing. This work will involve yeast display, and may involve other approaches such as phage display or mammalian cell-based systems. The postdoc will be working closely with a multidisciplinary team of molecular biologists, protein engineers, and computer scientists.

Interested candidates are welcome to contact Prof. Michael Birnbaum ( with any questions.

Qualifications: PhD in biochemistry, biological engineering, chemical engineering, molecular biology or a related discipline is required. Excellent written and verbal communication skills and organizational skills are required. Previous experience in protein engineering, molecular design, yeast display, yeast biology, and/or yeast genetics strongly preferred.

MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.
