One postdoctoral position is opened in the Statsyuk research laboratory at the University of Houston College of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacological and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The Statsyuk Laboratory is in a brand new research building that houses excellent research space. We are looking for highly motivated, self-driven, and independent postdoctoral fellows, who are willing to learn new interdisciplinary techniques and apply their scientific knowledge to a) conduct structural, mechanistic, and cell biology studies of ubiquitin enzymes, and b) develop small molecule probes that target these enzymes to test therapeutic hypotheses. Our research group is highly interdisciplinary and collaborative, and employs such techniques as synthetic organic chemistry, biochemistry, protein chemistry, mammalian cell culture, masspectrometry, Cryo-EM, and protein crystallography. Ideal candidates should have synthetic chemistry and/or chemical biology/enzymology training, and be familiar with organic synthesis, recombinant protein purification, enzymology, PCR, high-throughput screening, biophysical techniques, and/or cell culture. Candidates with synthetic organic chemistry background who are willing to learn interdisciplinary techniques will also be considered.
QUALIFICATIONS: A Ph.D. Degree
APPLICATIONS: Applications will be taken until the position is filled. Please submit cover letter addressed to Prof. Alexander V. Statsyuk, explaining why you want to join the research group, CV/resume, and a list of 3 references to avstatsy@central.UH.EDU as a single PDF file.
