[ccp4bb] A NIH funded postdoctoral fellow position for CryoEM and/or protein crystallography



A NIH funded postdoctoral fellow position for CryoEM and/or protein crystallography is available immediately in Dr. Xu’s laboratory at the Department of Molecular and Structural Biochemistry at North Carolina State University. Research in Xu lab focuses on structural elucidation of protein kinase activation in cellular signal transduction. This is a high risk, high impact research project encompassing an interdisciplinary approach to tackle the underlying questions that includes CryoEM, X-ray crystallography, biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology and in vivo analyses. 

Candidates should be motivated to work independently and should demonstrate healthy team work ethic. The selected postdoc will have the opportunity to conduct research in a truly interdisciplinary setting with close interactions with Biochemistry, Molecular biology and Structural biology groups. 

Candidates with expertise in at least the following areas are invited to apply: 

- Experience in working with CryoEM or X-ray crystallography is required.
- Extensive experience in molecular cloning and protein purification is preferred.

In addition, candidate is required to demonstrate excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Interested candidates should email their full CV and a list of three references. 

NC State University (NCSU) is one of the prestigious public universities in US. It is located at the center of North Carolina’s Research Triangle Area, which has multiple research, medicinal, healthcare institutes and biomedical industries. There are ample career opportunities in Biotechnology and medicine. In addition, research triangle area is one of the best places in US for living. Raleigh-Durham area has a lower living cost compared to other big cities. However, quality of living, education, healthcare is among one of the best in the nation.
