Two postdoctoral positions are available at the Hormel Institute, University of Minnesota, in my new group focusing on structural and functional studies of membrane transport proteins. The lab is fully outfitted for mammalian cell culture and optimization and large-scale protein expression and purification as well as biochemical analysis. Projects will enjoy fantastic access to a state of the art in-house Cryo-EM facility featuring a Titan Krios microscope equipped with a Falcon-III Direct electon detector and volta phase plate. A planned expansion includes acquisition of a Talos Arctica and K3 detector upgrades. The inistitute also houses an equipment core including fluorescent microscopes as well as anlytical ultracentrifugation, ITC and BIACORE instruments, along with shared common use highspeed centrifuges and a range of other high-end microscopes. The core facilities are further supported by dedicated facility managers responsible for training, support, and usage of equipment.
Candidates with experience in structural biology, particularly interpretation of intermediate resolution EM and X-ray maps and model building are strongly encouraged to apply.
The positions are for a two year period (including 48K USD/yr salary + fringe benefits) with the possibility of extension based on performance and funding. As such, qualified candidates will be expected to seek additional fellowship funding within the first year.
Interested candidates should contact me directly at: email@example.com with a CV and brief statement of research experience, interest, and future plan (academic or industry).
Ph.D., DDS, DVM, JD, MD or equivalent is required. Demonstrable experience in basic biochemistry and molecular biology techniques is required
