FACULTY POSITIONS

A Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Enrico Di Cera, M.D., Professor and Chair of Biochemistry, to study the structure and mechanism of activation of the thrombin precursors prothrombin and prethrombin-2. Recent Ph.D. graduates with a strong background in enzymology and/or X-ray structural biology are encouraged to apply. Interested candidates must submit a cover letter, application and current curriculum vitae to Requisiton #20150136

A Postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Frances Yap, Assistant Professor of Biochemistry. Successful candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, microbiology, bioinformatics, or related field from an accredited university, and have a deep interest and demonstrated capability in microbial genetics and biochemistry. The research project will focus on the mechanism by which ribosome undergoes translational stalling in response to ribosomal antibiotics and arrest peptides (for more details, see Davis, Gohara and Yap (2014) Sequence selectivity of macrolide-induced translational attenuation. PNAS. 111(34):15379-15384). A variety of experimental methods will be employed, including deep sequencing, molecular genetics and biophysical and biochemical analyses. NIH standards will be used in setting the pay scale. Interested candidates must submit a cover letter, application and current curriculum vitae to Requisiton #20150135

A Postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Ángel Baldán, Professor of Biochemistry. The project involves defining the role of novel genes in the control of lipid metabolism. Experience in one or more of the following areas is required: metabolic diseases, control of lipid metabolism, and cardiovascular and/or liver disease. Successful candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. or equivalent in a relevant field like biochemistry, biology, physiology, pharmacology, molecular biology etc., less than 3 years of post-doctoral experience, and at least one recent publication in the field. Salary is dependent on qualifications and experience. Interested candidates must submit a cover letter with a brief description of research interests, application and current curriculum vitae to Requisiton #20150138
