The Turchi Lab at the Indiana University School of Medicine is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to conduct research on a newly funded NIH R01 grant focusing on the DNA damage response in cancer development and treatment. We have pursued a chemical biology approach to interrogate the DDR and have developed a series of small molecule inhibitors of key proteins involved in protein-DNA interactions. Multiple, exciting avenues of research are ongoing spanning medicinal chemistry to in vivo cancer treatment. We are seeking highly motivated and passionate individuals committed to advancing knowledge through research with projects tailored to our common interests.
A PH.D. with proven experience in biochemistry, chemical-, cancer- and/or cell biology is required as demonstrated by first author publications in reputable scientific journals. Experience in biochemistry, molecular biology and biochemical assays is expected. Mammalian cell culture experience, protein expression and purification and experience in DNA combing and single molecule studies would also be advantageous. Excellent written and oral communication skills are required as is the ability to work in a multidisciplinary, collaborative environment.
Salary is commensurate with experience and based on current NIH guidelines
To apply, qualified candidates should submit a single page cover letter indicating their scientific interest in the Turchi Lab, a full CV and the names and contact information of three individuals willing to serve as references.
