The Deaconescu Lab at Brown University has an opening for a postdoctoral associate. The laboratory's interest is the interplay between DNA repair, transcription and chromatin remodeling, and is focused on elucidating the function and mechanochemistry of DNA-based motors using a combination of biochemical, biophysical and structural techniques. (e.g. X-ray crystallography, small-angle X-ray scattering, transmission electron microscopy). For examples of work, please see Kutter et al. JMB (2016), Deaconescu et al., PNAS (2012), Szyk et al, Cell (2014), Szyk et al., NSMB (2012) and Deaconescu et al., TIBS (2013). A successful candidate should have the following qualifications: a Ph.D. in the field of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Biochemistry or related field; an established track-record of publications in peer-reviewed journals; solid experience with X-ray crystallography, especially data collection and all aspects of data processing and molecular modeling. Must be highly motivated and work independently as well as in a team. Excellent spoken and written English are required. New Ph.D. graduates are encouraged to apply. Salary and starting date are negotiable.
Interested candidates should send a CV, one page research experience summary and contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Salary and starting date are negotiable. Please write Postdoctoral Candidate in the e-mail subject header. Brown University, an Ivy League school, is located less than one hour away by train from Boston.
