Dr. Kim's laboratory at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV; Edinburg, Texas) is looking for a highly motivated enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher.

The lab is utilizing various interdisciplinary approaches such as biochemistry and single-molecule biophysics methodologies to understand underlying working mechanisms of DNA-binding proteins in bacterial chromosome segregation and organization. Recently, the lab began to include NMR-based methodologies as their toolset. Candidates must hold a PhD or will get the degree very soon in the area of biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology, or closely-related fields (broadly defined). Prior single-molecule research experience may be preferred but is not required. The lab is funded by an NIH grant.

Interested applicants are invited to submit a cover letter stating previous research experience, current research interest, and motivation to Dr. HyeongJun Kim (hyeongjun (dot) kim (at) utrgv (dot) edu). Please include CV, and contact information for three references as well.

The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) was created in 2013 as the first major public university of the 21st century in Texas by consolidating several institutions, including the University of Texas at Brownsville and the University of Texas – Pan American. It is one of the largest Hispanic-Serving Institutions in the US. Despite its short history, research is one of the core values of the university, and UTRGV is already in the classification of Doctoral Universities – High Research Activity (R2) according to the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. The PI’s Department of Physics and Astronomy initiated its own PhD program in Spring 2022. The University is rapidly expanding its program portfolio including a newly established Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BCMB) MS program in which the PI is participating. In addition, UTRGV established its School of Medicine in 2015 to serve the underrepresented South Texas region and enhance health-related research.
