[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral position - Crystallography and EM of Human Transporters - University of Arizona



Dear CCP4BB community,

We have an opening in the Tomasiak lab at the University of Arizona for a postdoctoral researcher to lead a comprehensive structural/functional investigation of human nutrient transporter complexes by cryo-EM and X-ray crystallography.

The lab seeks a motivated individual with expertise in structural biology (x-ray crystallography and/or cryo-EM), transporter protein function, and/or high throughput protein engineering in mammalian cell culture. Candidates with one or more of these skills with an interest to learn the others are highly encouraged to apply. 

The project will entail investigations into the complex signaling and activity of transporters of cancer-related metabolites using a combination of structural biology with biochemical and cell-based assays. You will also have the opportunity to interface with several small molecule and analytical laboratories in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, as well as the pharmaceutical industry. Our on-site facilities include a screening electron microscope, as well access to a 300 keV FEI Titan Krios in nearby Tempe, Arizona. 

Our laboratory is located in picturesque Tucson, a diverse city designated as a UNESCO culinary world heritage site and is listed as #2 on the "Best Small American Cities" by Resonance Consulting Group and National Geographic. We are surrounded by magnificent mountainscapes, several large parks with extensive hiking areas, as well as a thriving arts and culture scene.

To apply, please submit an application to http://uacareers.com/postings/28948 .

Best,

Thomas Tomasiak, PhD
Assistant Professor
Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
University of Arizona
