[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral position in Structure and Function of G-protein-coupled receptors involved in mental health disorders



Postdoctoral position in Structure and Function of G-protein-coupled receptors involved in mental health disorders

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral fellow in the research group of Professor Bryan Roth, Department of Pharmacology, School of Medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The project aims to understand the structure, function and pharmacology of G-protein-coupled receptors involved in mental health disorders using a combination of state-of-the-art structural (X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM) and biochemical/biophysical/pharmacological techniques. 

Applicants should hold a PhD in a relevant subject area, such as membrane protein biochemistry or structural biology. Experience in native or recombinant membrane protein expression, purification and either structural determination or functional analysis using biochemical and biophysical techniques is essential. Ability to work in a team as well as contribute to supervision activities, excellent verbal and written communication skills are expected. Experience in protein X-ray crystallography and/or cryo-EM is an advantage.

Applications should be sent to Professor Bryan Roth, bryan_roth@med.unc.edu, detailing research interests, expertise, and career aims; CV; and the contact information of at least two references. Review of applications will begin immediately.
