The Chemical Engineering Program, Synthetic Biology and Intelligent Control
Laboratory , at Guangdong-Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, is
looking for 3-4 PhD/MS students and 2 postdoc associates to pursue research

   - Metabolic Engineering / Green manufacturing
   - Synthetic Biology / Bio-Intelligence and bio-computing
   - Feedback control theory / Biochemical reaction network
   - Bio-mathematical modeling / Host-Microbiome interactions

MSc Contract duration: 2 years. PhD Contract duration: 3~5 years.

*Project Details: *The SBIC-Lab focuses on applying chemical engineering
analysis, control theory, molecular tools and computational models to
decode biological intelligence, drive the convergence of synthetic biology
and artificial design for green manufacturing, better health and medicine.
The research team will focus on (1) Decoding biological intelligence for
cellular design and computation; (2) Microbial metabolic engineering for
manufacturing value-added compounds; (3) Understanding the interplay of
antimicrobial resistance and gut microbiota; (4) Microbiome, natural
products and precision medicine *et al*.

*The research topics of the positions include*:

   - Chemical biology, molecular biology and genetic engineering;
   - Feedback control theory, gene circuits and bio-intelligent design;
   - Bio-computing based on biochemical reaction network;
   - Yeast genome engineering and genome evolution;
   - Natural product synthesis and human/animal gut health;
   - C1 feedstock utilization.

*Keywords*: Synthetic biology, Metabolic engineering, Intelligent control,
Biocomputing, Natural Products, Human Microbiome, Biochemical reaction
network, Molecular Biology, Microbiology, Medicine, Oleochemicals,
Sustainability, Health, Artificial Intelligence, Computational modeling

Students will be enrolled and finally awarded the degree from Technion,
Israel Institute of Technology. We work in a dynamic, collaborative and
international environment. English is the working language. The selected
graduate students will have opportunities for: (1) international
collaborations and conference travel to interact with world experts in
China, Israel, Europe and the United States; (2) industrial partnership and
professional development; (3) communication skills training on presentation
and writing; (4) explore an intellectual journey and publish original
scholarly articles. We are based in Shantou, Guangdong, 2 hour high
speed-train to Shenzhen, Hong Kong and Xiamen. 70% of the scholars and
researchers are internationals.

*Fees & Benefits:*

Fellowship (Ms level): from 44,000 to 65,000 RMB/year

Fellowship (PhD level): from 80,000 to 126,000 RMB/year

Postdoc associate salary: 350,000RMB/year

Waived tuition

Subsidized room rental on campus (cost of 500 RMB/month/room)
