[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral Position in Structural Biology at Case Western Reserve University



 

Postdoctoral Position in Structural Biology at Case Western Reserve University

 

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available for a highly motivated membrane-protein structural biologist in the laboratory of Sudha Chakrapani at the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Case Western Reserve University. The project involves determination of protein structure and the basis for functional modulation of clinically important ion channels and transporters (Reference: Basak et. al. eLife (2017). We are using multidisciplinary state-of-the-art approaches to determine structure (X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM), protein dynamics (EPR and Fluorescence spectroscopy), and function (patching clamping in proteoliposomes and HEK cells, two electrode voltage-clamp). We are seeking candidates with a strong background in molecular biology, membrane protein _expression_/purification, and X-ray crystallography. Interested candidates should email Sudha Chakrapani (sxc584@case.edu) with a cover letter describing the candidate's research interests, CV, and contact details of three referees.
