A Protein Biochemist/Molecular Biologist position is available in the Tsai laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas to investigate the mechanism and function of protein quality control machines and related stress-response proteins (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 2016; Cell Rep. 2019; J. Mol. Biol. 2019; eLife 2020). Applicants with a Ph.D. in molecular biology, biochemistry, or enzymology are encouraged to apply. Demonstrated experience with methods used to express and purify proteins is essential; experience with PCR cloning and site-directed mutagenesis is desired. Prior experience in enzymology or working with a model organism (bacteria, S. cerevisiae, or C. elegans) is an advantage. The successful applicant will be highly motivated and possess excellent communication skills. S/he will join a multi-disciplinary team that uses systems biology methods to address questions of high biomedical importance. Minimum starting salary is US$55,000 and is in addition to a generous fringe benefit package. To apply, please send a cover letter with research interests and experiences, your current CV, and contact information for three referees (referees should be faculty or research directors) to Dr. Francis Tsai.
• Experience with PCR cloning and IEX, HIC, SEC chromatography is required.
• Prior experience in protein enzymology is an advantage (for biochemists).
• Prior experience with model organisms is an advantage (for molecular biologists).
• Applicants must be able to work independently and as a member of a team.
Applicants with a Ph.D. in any biological sciences, microbiology, chemistry, pharmacology, or biophysics will be considered if they meet the required criteria. The Tsai laboratory is located on the main BCM campus that provides a safe and secure environment for basic research. Social distancing and other safety precautions have been implemented and are maintained at all times.
