[ccp4bb] postdoctoral position - National Institutes of Health, Bethesda

Please see below an opportunity for a postdoctoral fellowship in my lab at the NIH. We are looking for enthusiastic, talented scientists who will share our passion for microtubules and the beautiful world of tubulin diversity.


Postdoctoral Fellowship

Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, USA

A postdoctoral fellowship opportunity is available in the Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit headed by Dr. Antonina Roll-Mecak to work on structural and functional studies of tubulin modification enzymes and molecular motors using a combination of X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM and single molecule fluorescence microscopy. Research in the Roll-Mecak lab focuses on deciphering the tubulin code ie how tubulin posttranslational modifications tune microtubule functions (see for instance Garnham et al., Cell 2015, Valenstein et al., Cell 2016, Vemu et al., JBC 2016; Zehr et al Nature Struct & Molec Biology 2017).  For more information about the lab please visit: https://neuroscience.nih.gov/ninds/rm_lab/

I am looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated Ph.D. graduates with a strong publication record and expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry, X-ray crystallography or electron microscopy who will welcome working in an interdisciplinary group with a supportive atmosphere and excellent resources. The Washingon DC area is a great place to live with great access to cultural and outdoor activities. Experience with assembly of protein complexes or structure determination by crystallographic methods or EM is a must. The successful applicant will be awarded a NINDS Intramural Fellowship.  Please send a CV, a one-page research experience summary and contact information of three references to Antonina@mail.nih.gov  Please write “Fellow - tubulin code” in the subject header.
