Postdoctoral Position in Microbial Biochemistry and Enzymology

We are seeking postdoctoral scholars to work on one of two fully funded collaborative projects in fundamental and applied microbial biochemistry. The first focuses on identifying, assaying, and using bacterial enzymes for bioenergy, biocatalysis, and the upcycling of renewable and non-renewable polymers as part of a multidisciplinary team involving academia, national labs, and industry partners. Funding is from the Department of Energy. See our collaborators at Bottle.org. The second project, funded by the National Institutes of Health, aims at understanding how bacterial metabolic processes contribute to iron metabolism in consortia, taking combined molecular, culture-based, and in vivo/mouse approaches. See: http://www.chemistry.montana.edu/directory/1583497/jennifer-dubois

Projects incorporate a range of experimental (cellular and molecular), spectroscopic, informatics, and biophysical approaches. Applicants should be recent Ph.D.s or graduate students within a year of completing their dissertations. Applicants should have a strong publication record and knowledge and skills related to one or more of the following: We are seeking postdoctoral scholars to work on one of two fully funded collaborative projects in applied and fundamental microbial biochemistry.

Projects incorporate a range of experimental (cellular and molecular), spectroscopic, informatics, and theoretical/computational approaches. Applicants should be recent Ph.D.s or graduate students in biochemistry, chemistry, or molecular biology, within a year of completing their dissertations. Applicants should have a strong publication record and knowledge and skills related to one or more of the following: mechanistic enzymology, protein biochemistry, metallobiochemistry, bioinformatics, and/or bacteriology. The new postdoc will have the opportunity to gain mastery in any/all of these fields in the PI's and collaborators' labs. He/she will receive mentoring leading to the submission of postdoctoral fellowships, presentation at national and international meetings, preparation of high quality manuscripts, and development of a robust scientific dossier.

Montana State University is a research-intensive, flagship institution located in the beautiful mountain west, close to skiing, national forests, and national parks. The university provides a supportive and welcoming environment for diverse applicants from all walks of life.

Interested applicants should please send a CV and list of references to jennifer.dubois1@montana.edu.
