The Deaconescu Lab at Brown University has one opening for a postdoctoral researcher. The laboratory’s interests lie primarily in stress responses, with particular emphasis on responses to DNA damage and the mechanochemistry of DNA-based motors. We utilize a combination of biochemical, biophysical and structural techniques. (e.g. X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy). Examples of recent work are: Schwartz et al, Protein Science (2021), Brugger et al, Nature Communications (2020), Dorich et al, Genes & Development (2019), Vemu et al. Science (2018), Le TT et al. Cell (2018), Szyk et al, Cell (2014).
A successful postdoctoral candidate should have an established track-record of publications in peer-reviewed journals; solid experience with protein biochemistry (including their purification, functional characterization and assay development). We have a variety of projects available at different stages of development, including some that involve drug design. Prior knowledge of crystallography and/or single-particle electron microscopy is highly desirable, but not required. Working knowledge of bacterial genetics could also be an asset. Must be highly motivated and work well independently as well as in a team. Excellent spoken and written English are required. New Ph.D. graduates are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should send a CV, a one page research experience summary and contact information for three references to alexandra_deaconescu[at]brown.edu. Please use “postdoctoral candidate” as a subject.
