Job Description:

JBEI Postdoctoral Appointee in Synthetic Biology Job posting number: #7075949 (Ref:675455) Posted: March 10, 2021 Job Description This postdoctoral position is a temporary position for up to one year, which may be renewed at Sandia's discretion up to five additional years. The PhD must have been conferred within five years prior to employment. Individuals in postdoctoral positions may bid on regular Sandia positions as internal candidates, and in some cases may be converted to regular career positions during their term if warranted by ongoing operational needs, continuing availability of funds, and satisfactory job performance. : This posting will be open for application submissions for a minimum of seven (7) calendar days, including the 'posting date'. Sandia reserves the right to extend the posting date at any time. : Are you looking for an opportunity to do important and creative research? Sandia/California's Biomass Science and Conversion Technology Department is seeking a dedicated and hardworking Postdoctoral Scientist to engineer non-model fungi to produce biofuels and biochemicals from lignocellulosic biomass at the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI). The Fungal Biotechnology group at JBEI is currently focused on developing fungal systems to produce both lignocellulose-deconstructing enzymes and a range of biofuels and bioproducts. The selected candidate will develop bioconversion routes to produce products directly from lignin. You will also collaborate with bioinformaticians to elucidate lignin catabolic pathways in non-model fungi and then modify them to divert carbon into biosynthetic pathway for a range of bioproducts, e.g pyrone-dicarboxylic acid, resveratrol, etc. On any given day, you may be called on to: + Develop and implement a Design, Build, Test Learn cycle to iteratively engineer fungi to produce lignin-derived bioproducts; + Design, synthesize, and transform DNA constructs for gene Knockouts/overexpression using CRISPR; + Develop machine learning approaches for metabolic engineering and lignin valorization using fungi; + Participate in laboratory management and mentoring student interns; + Present results at project meetings and conferences.

Required:
+ PhD in Biology, Bioengineering, Biochemistry, Mycology, or a closely related field; + The ability to conduct and communicate creative, independent research as proven through a record of high technical accomplishment (e.g. publication in high-impact scientific journals, or presentations at national/international conferences).

Desired:
+ Proven experience with using non-model fungi to convert lignocellulosic sugars and lignin to bioproducts; + Experience with proteomic, transcriptomic and metabolomic analysis; + Experience with metabolic engineering; + Working knowledge of standard microbiology and molecular biology analytical techniques; + Experience with user facilities, such as JGI and EMSL.

Department Description:

The Biomass Science and Conversion Technology department, located in Livermore, California, performs biological and bioengineering research with applications in advanced biofuels, renewable energy, nanobiology, nanotoxicology, and biofuels. We also plays an essential role in DOE Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI), one of four Bioenergy Research Centers in the Nation, and the and Agile Biofoundry (ABF). JBEI and ABF are multi-organizational research centers comprising world-class resources and expertise located in one facility at Emeryville, California. The goal of JBEI and the ABF is to use rapidly advancing scientific techniques, such as systems and synthetic biology, to accelerate development of the nation's biofuels industry. The department contains a multidisciplinary team of approximately 30 staff, postdocs and technologists with expertise in chemical engineering, biochemical engineering, biophysics, analytical chemistry, advanced spectroscopy, microbiology, computational biology, and molecular biology. The basic research activities in the department are focused on developing a basic understanding of the fundamental chemical, biochemical, and thermochemical reactions and interactions that occur at interfaces. The department is also developing a focus on systems and synthetic biology as they relate to biofuel production. Applied research activities are focused on enzyme and microbial engineering for biofuel production, advanced biomass pretreatment, metabolic engineering of algae, and advanced imaging techniques. Key sponsors include the DOE Office of Science, DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Sandia LDRD Program.

Security Clearance:

This position does not currently require a Department of Energy (DOE) security clearance. Sandia will conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Furthermore, employees in New Mexico need to pass a U.S. Air Force background screen for access to Kirtland Air Force Base. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause access to be denied or terminated, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment. If hired without a clearance and it subsequently becomes necessary to obtain and maintain one for the position, or you bid on positions that require a clearance, a pre-processing background review may be conducted prior to a required federal background investigation. Applicants for a DOE security clearance need to be U.S. citizens. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted. Members of the workforce (MOWs) hired at Sandia who require uncleared access for greater than 179 days during their employment, are required to go through the Uncleared Personal Identity Verification (UPIV) process. Access includes physical and/or cyber (logical) access, as well as remote access to any NNSA information technology (IT) systems. UPIV requirements are not applicable to individuals who require a DOE personnel security clearance for the performance of their SNL employment or to foreign nationals. The UPIV process will include the completion of a USAccess Enrollment, SF-85 (Questionnaire for Non-Sensitive Positions) and OF-306 (Declaration of for Federal Employment). An unfavorable UPIV determination will result in immediate retrieval of the SNL issued badge, removal of cyber (logical) access and/or removal from SNL subcontract. All MOWs may appeal the unfavorable UPIV determination to DOE/NNSA immediately. If the appeal is unsuccessful, the MOW may try to go through the UPIV process one year after the decision date.
