Position description: A postdoctoral position at the
Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute (HWI) is offered in the laboratory
of Dr. Aviv Paz, starting at the summer of 2018. We are seeking a highly
motivated candidate that is passionate about solving structures and applying
the structural insights gained for the understanding of biological processes. The main focus of the lab is the structure, function and dynamics
of transmembrane transport proteins, and most of our effort is dedicated to the
structural and functional characterization of structurally unresolved human
transporters. In order to study these biomedically relevant and challenging
targets we employ a vast array of structural-biology, biophysical and
biochemical methods. The laboratory is part of the HWI and as such we enjoy
access to the versatile equipment, expertise and facilities that the HWI has to
offer (see https://hwi.buffalo.edu/facilities/).
This position is fully funded but the successful candidate will be strongly
encouraged to apply for independent funding.
Qualifications: The candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree, have a
strong background in protein biochemistry or structural-biology and be the
first author of at least one publication. Experience in protein _expression_,
purification and biochemical characterization are required. Prior experience
in the membrane protein field or mammalian _expression_ systems (either
yeast or cell-lines) is an added advantage.
apply: Please send an e-mail to email@example.com and
attach a short C.V. (2 pages max), a summary of previous research experience,
and contact information of two references.
