[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral position in structural biology of neurodegeneration

Hi All,
We have a postdoctoral position available and would appreciate your help in spreading the word.

Postdoctoral Position in Structural and Chemical Biology of Neurodegenerative diseases.

Position Description: Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position in Dr. Hoang's laboratory at Indiana University School of Medicine.  Our research focuses on delineating the molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration. We use a broad range of experimental methods, including molecular dynamic simulation and in silico docking, molecular cloning, protein biochemistry, enzymology, X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy (including cryo-EM), NMR, yeast genetics, mammalian cell models, and C. elgans. Basically, we would go wherever the science takes us. Examples of some the methods that we employ can be gleaned from our prior: Hoang QQ et alNature. 425: 977-980 (2003); Liao J. et al. PNAS. 111(11):4055-60 (2014), Oh M et al. PNAS. 111(30):11007-12 (2014), and Wang W. et al. PNAS. 113(34):9587-92 (2016).

Requirements: We expect this position to be filled with a recent PhD in biophysics, biochemistry, chemistry, bioengineering, or a related discipline providing solid knowledge of biological macromolecules.  Experience in protein _expression_ and purification is essential, as is familiarity with thermodynamics, biochemistry, and quantitative data analysis.  We are particularly interested in a person who has expertise in one or more methods mentioned above and is looking to learn new complimentary skills to carry out a multidisciplinary investigation into molecular mechanisms of brain degeneration. The applicant needs to be a team worker with good communication skills.

To Apply:Applicants should submit the following: brief description of research interests and career goals, CV, and contact information for three references to Dr. Quyen Hoang (qqhoang@iu.edu).
