Postdoctoral Position in Bioinformatics

The Laboratory of Genetically Encoded Small Molecules at The Rockefeller University is seeking a highly motivated and outstanding candidate for a postdoctoral position in Bioinformatics. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics. Candidates must also demonstrate a strong track record of research productivity, scientific rigor, excellent communication skills, and an ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

The post-doctoral associate will work on identifying biosynthetic gene clusters in the soil microbiome and study small molecule biosynthesis in the human microbiome.

Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and names and contact information of three (3) references to Dr. Sean Brady at

Natural products or more generally, genetically encoded small molecules play a wide variety of roles in biology and have proved useful in the development of small molecule therapeutic agents. The Brady Lab’s research centers on the discovery, biosynthesis and characterization of new, genetically encoded small molecules from microbial sources, with a special focus on those produced by uncultured soil bacteria and pathogenic bacteria.
