[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral Felloship available



A postdoctoral opportunity exists in the laboratory of Richard Baxter at the Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia to investigate the structure and function of complement-like proteins in insects, their roles in immunity, development, and the transmission of infectious diseases. You will join an interdisciplinary group using biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology, and cell-based assays in collaboration with experts at the organismal level. Your objective will be to elucidate novel molecular mechanisms of immunity, and new connections between invertebrate and vertebrate immune responses, that can be leveraged to predict and disrupt disease.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, biochemistry or related disciplines, a record of peer-reviewed publication, and familiarity with standard laboratory techniques of molecular cloning, protein expression and purification, and structural techniques such as x-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, small angle x-ray scattering, and/or mass spectrometry. Interested applicants please send (i) cover letter, (ii) curriculum vitae, and (iii) name and contact information for three references to Prof. Richard Baxter by email: rbaxter@temple.edu.
