The Klavins lab develops synthetic living systems, re-engineered organisms, and engineered parts for existing organisms. The emphasis is on designing gene circuits and cell-cell communication systems that enable novel multicellular behaviors in bacteria, yeast, and plants. Klavins is interested in the full stack from modeling and design to fabrication and testing of new living systems. His current projects include synthetic multicellular systems, machine-learning enabled protein engineering, and laboratory automation.
We frequently have positions available for postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, staff members, and undergraduate assistants. See here for more information.
