A postdoctoral position in structural biology is available immediately in the research group of Dr. Edward Yu at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. The incoming research fellow will use X-ray crystallography/cryo-EM and other biophysical/biochemical techniques to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of multidrug efflux pumps that mediate antimicrobial resistance in bacterial pathogens (Long et al., 2010, Nature; Su et al., 2011, Nature; Bolla et al., 2015, Nature Commun.; Su et al., 2015, Cell Rep.; Kumar et al., 2017, PNAS; Su et al., 2017 Nature Commun.). Please find additional information about our research group and outstanding research environment in the Case Western Department of Pharmacology website (http://pharmacology.case.edu/department/Faculty/Primary/Default.aspx).
This position requires expertise in structural biology. The ideal candidate will have shown the ability to guide a project to completion, from protein expression to structural analysis. Knowledge of common structural programs (Phenix, Coot, Pymol) a must. Experience with single-molecule FRET and other biochemical and biophysical characterization methods would be considered a strength.
Qualified applicants must have a PhD or MD/PhD degree; strong written, oral communication, and critical thinking skills are required. As a Postdoctoral Scholar, he/she will present data at departmental seminars, prepare manuscripts, and contribute preliminary data for grant proposals. Preference will be given to applicants with a recognized record of accomplishment as evidenced by scholarly publications in the field of bacteriology or structural biology. Send inquiries containing a cover letter, CV with list of publications and contact information to Dr. Edward Yu (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Phil Klenotic (email@example.com).
