The laboratory of Dr. Yogesh Gupta (http://ccri.uthscsa.edu/YGupta.html) at University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (UT Health San Antonio™) is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic scientist with strong interest in structural/mechanistic studies on protein-nucleic acid assemblies that play critical roles in leukemia and pediatric sarcoma pathogenesis. We combine various structural and chemical biology tools (X-ray, NMR, cryo-EM, AUC, SAXS) with in silico, and cell-based methods to address basic mechanistic questions, and exploit this knowledge for small molecule cancer drug discovery.


Our lab is physically located within the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute (Greehey CCRI) at UT Health San Antonio.  We have full access to an extensive array of core institutional facilities (Biochemistry core, CIDD, Research core labs) located within the Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology, the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine, and Greehey CCRI.  Applicants with demonstrated experience in protein biochemistry, structural biology, or cancer biology with experience in cell imaging, tissue culture, FACS, mice, Cas/CRISPR knock out, and a keen interest in mechanistic/structural studies are preferred. Candidates are expected to possess strong organizational, interpersonal skills, and ability to work as part of a team. Candidate should hold (or soon expect to hold) a PhD or equivalent degree in a related discipline. Prior experience in X-ray crystallography is desirable but not required.


Salary is competitive. San Antonio offers affordable cost of living and there is no state income tax in Texas.
