A CPRIT funded postdoctoral position on single particle cryo-EM is available at Houston Texas Medical Center. The project will be led by the Dr. Mien-Chie Hung group at the University of Texas MD Anderson and will involve collaborations with Dr. Zhao Wang group (Baylor College of Medicine). We are looking for a creative and energetic colleague to study on the structure of antibodies-bound immune checkpoint ligand/receptor, which play critical role in tumor-associated immune escape in cancer cells. A sharp analytical mind and the ability to work in a group are essential. The center at BCM has expertise spans the entire discipline, including experimental and computational aspects of high-resolution single particle analysis of both soluble and membrane proteins as well as CryoET of both purified material and cells.
The candidate must have a PhD (or will shortly be awarded) with experience in protein/complex _expression_ and purification. Applicants with backgrounds in the following fields are encouraged to apply: X-ray crystallography, physics, biochemistry, and biology. Submit a CV with 3 references for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.comWang, Zhao
