A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Emilia Galperin in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry in the College of Medicine at the University of Kentucky to work on externally funded, multi-year projects. The overall goal of the lab is to understand the molecular mechanisms of spatial and temporal regulation of signal transduction. Preference will be given to applicant with a strong background in protein purification and characterization; experience in other biophysical methods such as X-ray crystallography is a plus. The successful applicant will be a highly motivated individual with good communication skills, will have a proven publication record, and the ability to work independently as well as within a group. This work is in collaboration with the protein structural group of Dr. David Rodgers.
The applicant must currently have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry or a related field. The appointment will be for 1 year with renewal up to 5 years. Interested candidates should assemble a i) cover letter, ii) CV, iii) list of references, and iv) first-author manuscript that have been published or accepted for publication. The cover letter should describe the candidate's research experience, scientific interests, and preferred start date.
