    Opportunity: Director of Cell Biology (JBEI) (#77187) @ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory -- Berkeley, CA (US)
    Submitted by Jeff Todd; posted on Thursday, January 30, 2014



    This Research Scientist appointment will assume program lead responsibilities for the Systems Biology Group in the Feedstocks Division of the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI). The Systems Biology Group should focus on aspects of cell wall biology that complement other activities in the Feedstocks Division. Research topics could include metabolomics, proteomics, biochemistry, and cell biology, including metabolic channeling and interactions between proteins involved in cell wall biosynthesis. An important component of this position is to establish a highly competitive independent research program. As one of the scientists in the Feedstocks Division, this position will manage the day-to-day operations and research activities of the Systems Biology Group, including coordination with the other senior personnel in the Feedstock Division to ensure that the goals and milestones set forth in the JBEI proposal will be achieved. Furthermore, this Career-Track Research Scientist will be expected to contribute to development of future research programs at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.


    Research and Program Development:
    • Establish a highly competitive independent research program that will focus on:
    • Development of tools to study metabolite flows and metabolic channeling in cell wall biosynthesis
    • Characterization of the composition of subcellular compartments using advanced proteomics and/or metabolomics
    • Biochemistry of cell wall biosynthesis
    • Characterization of cell wall composition and structure
    • Supporting the proteomics and/or metabolomics needs of the feedstock team
    • Develop research proposals that lead to continued funding, prepare and submit manuscripts for publication, and prepare documents for securing Intellectual Property Rights.
    Operations and Personnel Management:
    • Provide leadership for the successful operational management and research activities in the Systems Biology Group in the Feedstocks -Division to ensure that established research goals and milestones are achieved.
    • Supervise a group of 4-6 scientists, technicians, postdoctoral fellows, and undergraduate students.
    • Responsible for coordination with other Divisions
    • Coordinate efforts and communications with other groups in the Feedstocks Division.
    • Develop strong working relations with the other sections in the JBEI program such as Deconstruction, Fuels Synthesis, and Technologies. Network with key national and international researchers related to this research program.
    • Jointly with the other Directors ensure that data acquisition protocols are followed, and safety standards are maintained in the Feedstocks Division.
    Additional responsibilities:
    • Develop bioinformatic approaches to analyze data relevant for the Feedstocks Division.


    • Ph.D in Biology, Plant Physiology, or related field
    • Demonstrated success in the publication of high impact work in internationally recognized and peer-reviewed journals.
    • Experience in the supervision of undergraduate, graduate students, technicians or postdocs.
    • Excellent management and communication skills as well as the ability to work in a large team.
    • Recognized international authority in cell wall research, metabolomics or proteomics.


    • Experience in bioinformatics
