[ccp4bb] postdoc position

Dear structural biology enthusiasts,

An NIH-funded postdoc position is available immediately in my lab. Please see below,


at Brown University, USA


The Deaconescu Lab at Brown University is seeking an ambitious, and energetic postdoctoral. The laboratory's interest is the interplay between DNA repair and other cellular processes including 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 Deaconescu et al. Photochem. Photobiol. (2016), Kutter et al. JMB (2016), Szyk et al, Cell (2014),  Deaconescu et al., PNAS (2012), Szyk et al., NSMB (2012), Deaconescu et al., TIBS (2012), Deaconescu et al, Cell (2006). A successful candidate should have the following qualifications: a Ph.D. in the field of Molecular Biology, Structural Biology and Biochemistry or related field; an established track-record of publications in peer-reviewed journals; solid experience in the biochemistry of complex DNA-binding proteins (such as chromatin remodeling factors, transcription factors and DNA repair proteins), their purification from E.coli/yeast _expression_ systems as well as their characterization using functional studies such as by isothermal titration calorimetry and fluorescence.  Prior knowledge of crystallography would be a plus, but is not required. 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 alexandra_deaconescu@brown.edu. 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.   Lab webpage: https://deaconesculab.com
