The Ortony Lab will be seeking postdocs in two areas: (1) Small molecule synthesis, or (2) supramolecular nanostructure or molecular crystal properties and characterization.
Our search for postdocs is currently on hold due to covid-19. Please check back later.
Meet our lab!
We strive to understand the interplay between molecular design, conformational and water dynamics, and interfacial molecular recognition events on the nanoscale.
