A Postdoctoral Scholar position is available in a biochemistry research lab at the University of California, Merced, a top-100 research university. The successful applicant will carry out cutting-edge research to develop the next generation of biological anti-inflammatory therapeutics. The research, funded by the Dept of Defense, involves identifying and manipulating viral proteins that bind immune-signaling chemokines. The project is highly collaborative, linking biochemical, biophysical, and structural biological experiments to molecular simulations and sequence analysis. The post doc will be involved in all laboratory elements of this project, including the design, expression and purification of proteins in multiple cell types, as well as biochemical and biophysical characterization of protein-protein interactions, using ELISA assays, NMR spectroscopy, fluorescence, and biolayer interferometry.
Required Qualifications: Successful applicants must have a recent PhD in Biochemistry or related field, relevant experience, and a willingness to learn a variety of techniques and to mentor junior lab members.
Preferred Qualifications: Prior experience in protein expression and purification and a solid background in basic biophysics.
Interested individuals should submit 1) a cover letter describing research experiences and interests, and career goals, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) a list of two references with contact information including mailing address, phone number and email address, and 4) up to two relevant (p)reprints.
Initial review of applications will begin immediately. Recruitment will remain open until position is filled.
