Postdoctoral and research technician positions in Synthetic biology & Biosensing at KAUST

The Mahfouz laboratory for genome engineering & Synthetic Biology at KAUST has two postdoctoral positions and one research technician position in synthetic biology and CRISPR- based diagnostics for the point-of-care applications. The goal of our research is to develop innovative technologies for pathogen diagnostics.

These postdoctoral research positions are focused on the following research projects:

  1. Developing innovative technologies in CRISPR-based virus diagnostics.
  2. Large-scale production and formulation of reagents into a diagnostic kit for in-field applications.
  3. Design-Build and Test diagnostic point-of-care virus detection devices.
  4. Design clinical validation assays of the testing kits or devices for practical field deployment and end-user applications.

These positions are available immediately and remain open until filled.

Required qualifications:

  • A Ph.D. in synthetic biology, molecular diagnostics, biochemistry, biotechnology, molecular biology, or related field is required.
  • Demonstrated strong record of research productivity as evidenced by high-quality publications.
  • Effective writing and presentation skills.

You are expected to have the expertise to perform the following duties efficiently:

  • Design, build, test, and engineer a variety of plasmid constructions for diverse applications.
  • Protein purification and catalytic activity assays.
  • In vitro transcription and translation and the generation and use of cell-free systems.
  • Use of CRISPR-Cas systems in biosensing.

The successful candidate will be highly self-motivated and eager to work in cross-disciplinary settings with multiple research groups and talented individuals of different scientific and cultural backgrounds. The successful candidate will join a highly interactive group with strengths in bioengineering, genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry.

Applications should include:

  • A full CV with publication list,
  • A 2-3-page statement of translational research interests and goals.
  • Contact information for three academic references.

Please send your full application package to magdy.mahfouz@kaust.edu.sa or magdy@magdymahfouz.org

Screening of applications will start immediately, and the positions remain open until filled.
