An NIH-funded postdoctoral opening is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Yizhi Jane Tao at Rice University, Houston, TX, USA. The project is to study RNA virus structure and function using X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, and other biochemical/biophysical methods. Successful applicants are expected to be highly motivated individuals with a Ph.D. in biochemistry or structural biology.
Our laboratory is equipped with excellent biochemistry and molecular biology facilities. There is a in-house X-ray diffraction facility together with two crystal screening robots. We have regular access to synchrotron radiation at the APS, and there are several electron microscopes on campus for shared use.
Rice University is a private institution located right next to the Texas Medical Center, the home of 47 institutions including Texas Children’s Hospital, MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Baylor College of Medicine. There is a large structural biology community in Houston that is both intellectually stimulating and supportive.
Please send inquiries and applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to discuss with you about the details of the projects.
