[ccp4bb] PostDoctoral Position in Structural Biology - Structural Studies of Ribosome Functional Complexes



Dear Colleagues,

We
​ ​
have an open position for a P
ost
D
oc
​ ​
in my laboratory 
at the University of Illinois at Chicago, USA
​ ​
(https://bios.uic.edu/bios/people/faculty/yury-polikanov).
​ ​
The research in o
ur laboratory is focused on understanding basic principles of protein synthesis in bacteria, the modes of action of ribosome-targeting antibiotics, and mechanisms of drug resistance at a structural level. We use macromolecular X-ray crystallography approach to determine high-resolution structures of ribosome functional complexes.

​​
The successful candidate should hold a PhD in chemistry, biochemistry
biophysics 
or related areas and experience in structural biology.
​ ​
The successful candidate
​ ​
should
 also 
have an excellent track record and experience in X-ray crystallography as well as
​ ​
in 
protein _expression_
purification
crystallization, data collection, structure determination
and model refinement.
 Advanced computer s
kills together with
experience
​ ​
i
n complementary biochemical and biophysical techniques related to the studies of the 70S ribosome 
would be a benefit.
​ ​
Preference will be given to those who have a strong drive
motivation
, and passion for discovery
.

Applicants should submit
​ ​
cover letter, 
curriculum vitae
​ ​
(CV)
,
​ ​
and contact information for 
t
hree 
references
​ ​
directly 
to Dr.
​ ​
Y
ury Polikanov 
().
