[ccp4bb] -Postdoc Position in Structural Biology at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas

Dear all,

Hello! I am posting a job position on behalf of Dr. Choel Kim. Below is the description for the job. Should you have any question regarding the position, please directly contact Dr. Kim at ckim@bcm.edu.

An NIH funded postdoctoral research scientist position is available at Dr. Choel Kim’s laboratory in the Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology at Baylor College of Medicine.  The successful candidate will participate in our structure based drug discovery program targeting signaling proteins in the Nitric Oxide-cGMP signaling cascade using X-ray crystallography and Cryo-EM. These enzymes modulate the cellular level of cGMP or the responses to this crucial secondary messenger representing therapeutic targets for treating many hypertensive diseases, such as arterial and pulmonary hypertension, heart failure and erectile dysfunction.

The successful candidates must have PhD degree and have strong skills in molecular biology, protein _expression_/purification and macromolecular crystallography. Preference will be given to those who have a strong drive and motivation. The position includes ample opportunities for training in Cryo-EM. Experience with Cryo-EM is not necessary, but beneficial.

The Department of Pharmacology and Chemical Biology provides state of the art facilities for Biophysics and X-ray crystallography and Cryo-EM. Salary and benefits are offered based on NIH guidelines.  Applicants should submit curriculum vitae, cover letter outlining career goals and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Choel Kim (ckim@bcm.edu). 


Best regards,
