Postdoctoral Fellow in Membrane Protein Structural Biophysics

Membrane Structural Biology and Biophysics

at The Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine

The laboratory of Dr. Kenneth Lee invites applications for a postdoctoral position applying interdisciplinary approaches to study the structure and mechanism of membrane protein complexes connected to human disease.

We are seeking highly motivated individuals with a PhD or MD/PhD degree in the fields of biochemistry, biophysics, neuroscience and molecular cell biology. Required is a track-record of productivity. Candidates are expected to have a strong work ethic, excellent organizational and communication skills, critical thinking abilities and be capable of thriving in a fast-paced environment.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in structural biology, molecular biology and protein purification. Expertise in membrane protein biochemistry, single-particle cryo-EM and/or X-ray crystallography is preferred but not required.

The successful candidate will join a vibrant community of scientists and health professionals and will have on-site access to superb resources including a newly established state-of-the-art cryo-EM facility housing a 300 kV Titan Krios G3i cryo-TEM equipped with a Volta phase plate, Gatan BioQuantum energy filter and K3 direct electron detector.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV and contact information of three references to
