Post-doctoral researchers are an integral part of our research group. They take a leadership role on particular research topics, bring expertise into our group that we otherwise wouldn't be exposed to, and play a critical role in mentoring and supervising junior scientists. Past post-docs have gone on to faculty jobs and fellowships in leading research institutions.
Post-doctoral opportunities are limited by funding. Whenever we have funding for a position, it will be filled through a competitive search which will be advertised on UT's jobs website. At the same time, prospective post-docs are encouraged to contact Paul at any time to discuss their research interests and how they see them aligning with the group. At a minimum, Paul can then keep your name on file to make sure you see the adverts for any vacancies as soon as they open. But also, there may be other funding opportunities that we can explore. For example, Paul is affiliated with the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) that runs a bi-annual call (March and September) for post-doctoral fellowship applicants. This provides an outstanding opportunity for applicants looking for more independence in a post-doctoral research position but who have interests that align with those represented in our group
