Postdoctoral Scholar Position on Investigating CRISPR Mechanism at University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California, USA
The Qin Laboratory in the Chemistry Department of the University of Southern California invites applications for postdoctoral scholar positions supported by funding from NIH and NSF. The work centers on investigating mechanisms of target recognition by the programmable CRISPR nucleases that are revolutionizing genome engineering. The projects use a combination of biophysical techniques, including spin-labeling and EPR (a specialty of the Qin lab, see ), fluorescence, and structural characterization. Candidates with prior experience on protein _expression_, mutagenesis, structural analyses (e.g., X-ray, NMR), and protein-nucleic acid interaction are particularly welcome. Strong writing and communication skills, as evidenced by first author publications, are highly desirable.
The appointment is available initially for three years contingent on satisfactory research progress. Funding starts in Fall 2018, and salary will commensurate with qualifications. To Apply, please email a cover letter, CV and contact information for three references to Professor Peter Qin,
