Two Postdoctoral Positions at The University of Chicago

Two NIH-funded postdoctoral research positions are available in the laboratory of Robert Keenan, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at The University of Chicago. These projects are part of our broader efforts to understand the molecular mechanisms that underlie membrane protein biogenesis and quality control pathways. 

These are training and development positions for Postdoctoral scientists who have (or will) recently completed their doctoral studies, and are looking to move into a new research area. Main duties include conceptualizing, designing and performing research to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying pathways of membrane protein biogenesis. 

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell biology, structural biology or a related field. Essential skills for these projects include:  cloning, protein expression and purification, mammalian cell culture, use of radioactivity, and in vitro functional assays. Experience with membrane proteins is especially helpful. Successful candidates will have a significant track record that demonstrates creativity and initiative.
