Open Positions

The Kurouski lab is looking for high performing and motivated B.S. and M.S. graduates in biochemistry, physics or chemistry to begin their PhD at the cutting edge of the exciting Biochemistry and Biophysics fields.

Lab projects use physics, optics and chemometrics to understand plants, plant pathogens and/or decomposing bodies (forensics). You will get to work on lasers to improve food production and sustainability while getting paid for it! Competitive graduate students will receive a yearly living stipend, health benefits, and tuition, culminating in a graduate degree. Jobs in the area of biophotonics are well paying and plentiful in both private and public sectors. Additional projects include structural organization of amyloids, elucidation of electrochemical and electrocatalytic processes at nanoscale, and forensic applications of Raman and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. If you don’t know what any of this means but you enjoy meaningful lab work you will love it.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Biophysics.

The laboratory of Dr. Dmitry Kurouski at the Texas A&M University, Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics seeks to hire a Postdoctoral Fellow/Technician with a research experience in biophysics and biochemistry. The focal point of the research project is to determine the role of lipids in the aggregation of amyloidogenic proteins, including amyloid beta and Tau. Specifically, we aim to determine how lipids alter (i) rates of protein aggregation, as well as (ii) the structure and toxicity of amyloid oligomers are fibrils. We also want to understand how amyloid oligomers and fibrils exert their toxicity in cells.

The ideal candidate should have a strong biochemistry and biophysics background with an experience in eukaryotic cell cultures, flow cytometry and cell toxicity assays. We also expect the successful candidate to have an experience in protein expression and protein purification.

The Postdoctoral Fellow/Technician will work in a multicultural group. The candidate will lead the project, perform experiments, and write papers. The candidate will also have an opportunity to collaborate with other research groups at Texas A&M University.

Where we are:

The laboratory is located in the main campus of Texas A&M University (College Station, TX). We are around 2-2.5 hours away from Houston, Dallas and Austin.

How to Apply: A competitive salary and benefits package will be offered to the successful candidate. Interested applicants should send a single PDF file of their current CV with publications list to Prof. Dmitry Kurouski (
