We invite motivated individuals to join us in exciting research in synthetic and systems biology. Active projects include engineering of synthetic ecosystems, bacterial killer circuits and microbial swarmbots for therapeutic applications, analysis and reprogramming of mammalian cell cycle, and information processing by gene circuits.

Postdoctoral scholars: A Ph.D. in Microbiology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biochemical Engineering, or closely related fields. If interested, send your CV to Lingchong You by email at you (at) duke.edu. Also arrange at least two recommendation letters.

Graduate students in the lab are primarily recruited through the Department of Biomedical Engineering. However, we are also interested in students from the following graduate programs at Duke, Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, University Program in Genetics and Genomics, and Cell and Molecular Biology Program. If interested, please send your CV to Lingchong You by email.

Undergraduate students may join the lab through a variety of routes, including Independent Study (via BME), Pratt Fellowship, and IGSP Summer Fellowship.
