Join Us

The Newberry lab is hiring!  We are recruiting a diverse team of motivated scientists to join our interdisciplinary research group and help us tackle difficult problems at the interface of chemistry and biology; learn more at our Research page.  We welcome students and scientists from all personal and professional backgrounds, and we value the experience and expertise that each of our scientists bring.  Although our research program draws on perspectives from organic chemistry, biophysics, and molecular biology, no prior experience in these areas is necessary; instead, we look for colleagues who are excited about the problems we work on and who are willing to bring enthusiasm, hard work, and a constructive mindset.  In return, we are committed to helping our team members realize their professional goals, and we offer competitive salary and benefits.  Plus, Austin consistently ranks among the best places to live in the US and offers a vibrant atmosphere for both work and play.  Please contact Dr. Newberry to discuss opportunities that would be right for you.

Graduate Students

We have openings for graduate students!  We currently accept graduate students from the Chemistry and Cell & Molecular Biology PhD programs, and we anticipate affiliations with other graduate programs in the near future.  Current UT graduate students can contact Dr. Newberry to discuss potential projects and rotations.  Prospective graduate students interested in our research should apply to UT Austin's Chemistry PhD Program or Cell & Molecular Biology PhD program. Contact Dr. Newberry to discuss opportunities in other programs.

Postdoctoral Scholars

Although we are not currently looking to fill any specific postdoc positions, we always welcome interest from individuals who are committed to our research goals. Interested candidates should send Dr. Newberry a cover letter describing their scientific interests and professional goals, as well as a CV and a short research summary.  Please also arrange for a letter of recommendation to be sent from your graduate advisor.  Successful candidates will demonstrate a strong track record of productivity, a critical mindset, and a specific interest in our research areas.

Technicians, Research Associates, and Postbacs

Although we are not currently looking to fill any specific positions, we always welcome interest from individuals who are committed to our research goals. Interested candidates should send Dr. Newberry a resume/CV and a cover letter describing their scientific training, interests, and goals.  

Undergraduates

Our lab is proud to involve undergraduates in our research. At this time, we have received more interest than we can currently accommodate.  As our lab grows and more projects build momentum, we anticipate additional openings, possibly as early as Fall 2022.  Interested undergraduates are encouraged to contact Dr. Newberry in the late spring and summer to explore potential opportunities in the fall.
