Postdoctoral Position in Mechanistic and Structural Enzymology at the University of Iowa
The Dey lab in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Iowa seeks to recruit an outstanding postdoctoral scientist with experience and interest in mechanistic enzymology, structural biology, and biophysical methods. The successful candidate will be responsible for the characterization of enzymes involved in methanogenesis. The lab uses a combination of biochemical, structural, and spectroscopic techniques to investigate enzyme structure-function. Previous experience in structural biochemistry, enzymology, and anaerobic manipulations would be valuable. This position provides the opportunity for broad training in protein _expression_, crystallization, kinetics, spectroscopy, and molecular biology.
Candidates must have their Ph.D. by the beginning date of the appointment in Biological Chemistry or a related discipline (Biochemistry, Chemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics, Microbiology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Biochemical, and Biomedical engineering). The successful candidate will have strong experience in molecular biology, protein _expression_, purification, crystallization, and functional analysis. A significant publication record is an advantage. The candidate must have the ability to work independently and in a team.
The position is available immediately with funding for three years.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and contact information of 2 individuals as references via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University of Iowa is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
