PostdocUncultured viruses
The Luque Lab at the University of Miami (Coral Gables, Florida) is hiring a postdoc in biology to predict the physical properties of uncultured viruses using computational biophysics and multi-scale modeling.
LeadershipTransitional PeriodBiologics Production
Vulcan Biologics (Claremont, California) is seeking a phage enthusiast to provide crucial leadership and oversight as interim CEO during a pivotal transitional period.

The company’s founder, Dr. Mike Koeris, has taken on the role of Office Director for the Biological Technologies Office at DARPA. The interim CEO will have a unique opportunity to shape the company’s strategic direction, particularly in areas critical to phage research and biologics production. Dr. Koeris will lend support throughout, and return once his tour of duty at DARPA concludes.
