Postdoctoral/Research Associate Position in Protein Design and Structural Biology

The project involves functional protein design and protein engineering. The candidate will develop computational and biochemical methods to design new protein sequences of novel biological functions (e.g. enzyme activity, ligand binding, and protein-protein interactions). Special attentions will be paid to designing new proteins targeting pathways of various diseases including cancer and obesity. Candidates with wet-lab experience in protein design and protein engineering, protein expression and binding assay, structural biology (X-ray crystallography, NMR), molecular biology, and/or computational biology are encouraged to apply. Skills in computational programming are not required but will be a plus to the position. Excellent interpersonal skill with motivation and ability to lead an independent biochemistry laboratory is essential.

More details on our projects can be found at http://zhanglab.ccmb.med.umich.edu/research. Only the creative individuals with ambition to develop a highly successful academic career are considered. If interested in the position, please send your CV and a brief description of your research interest and research plan to Dr. Yang Zhang (Email: zhng@umich.edu).
