Jaramillo Lab

(Updated 4 May 2015)

We are now based at the University of Warwick, although we still keep the lab at Genopole (Paris region). Therefore, we are hiring postdocs for both places (sometimes the adverts may have expired but we may consider applications)

The therapeutics of tomorrow will be individualized, specific, and self-regulated. A programmable synthetic phage could revolutionize phage therapy providing a novel approach against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. For this, the laboratory of Professor Alfonso Jaramillo ( is developing novel experimental methodologies to engineer a novel synthetic phage system. You will use a combination of directed evolution, automation, virus engineering, microfluidics, and synthetic biology. You will be part or an international consortium devoted to the development and use of a novel in vivo evolution technology that can be programmed, allowing the engineering of complex multi-functional systems.

We currently have 1 postdoc opening (please apply by 5th May 2015 through the official website):

We may also have placements for students and postdocs coming with their funding. Please carefully read the links below and then contact Prof. Alfonso Jaramillo (alfonso.jaramillo
