Postdoctoral Positions in Biochemistry and Biophysics: Three postdoctoral positions are available immediately in a biochemistry and biophysics laboratory to elucidate mechanisms of DNA/RNA synthesis, DNA lesion bypass, and base excision repair catalyzed by various human and viral DNA/RNA polymerases, and to mechanistically investigate gene editing enzymes including CRISPR/Cas9 and Cas13a. Background in enzyme kinetics (stopped-flow and rapid chemical quench measurements, single molecule, etc.), protein dynamics, biochemistry, biophysics, protein purification, and recombinant DNA techniques is preferred. An important criterion for selection will be the ability of the desired individual to pursue independent research in an active multi-disciplinary setting. Any interested candidate should send a CV, and a statement describing experience, goals, and reasons for the interest in these positions, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to: Dr. Zucai Suo, Eminent Professor and Dorian and John Blackmon Chair in Biomedical Science, Department of Biomedical Sciences, College of Medicine, Florida State University, Tallahassee, FL. Dr. Suo can be contacted by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Further information about the research projects in the Suo Lab can be obtained from https://med.fsu.edu/suolab/home.
