Mazin Lab in the Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology is recruiting three highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral fellows to conduct basic and translational studies on DNA repair and tumorigenesis.  The projects available: a) study the role of RNA in DNA repair; b) develop DNA repair-targeted approaches of anticancer therapy; c) solve the structure of DNA repair proteins and their complexes with small molecule inhibitors using NMR, crystallography, and Cryo-EM. The positions will require experience: position (a) with biochemical and cellular methods; position (b) with mouse tumor models; position (c) with methods of structural biology and protein biophysics. Position (c) will involve collaboration with a specialized structure biology lab (Dr. Libich).

The Department houses state-of-the art core facilities (X-ray crystallography, Cryo-EM, NMR spectroscopy, SPR, ITC/DSC), mass spectrometry (proteomics and metabolomics), and the Center for Innovative Drug Discovery. San Antonio is the seventh-largest city in the U.S., with a historical downtown, a vibrant economy, affordable housing, and many recreational opportunities.

The postdoctoral positions are funded by NIH, DoD and CPRIT grants. To apply for these positions, please send a cover letter describing prior research experiences, scientific and professional interests, with a Curriculum Vitae and the names of references to Dr. Alexander Mazin at
