We are looking for a talented and highly motivatedpostdoctoralfellow to join my group in the Department of Structural Biology at Genentech to study the function and regulation of macromolecular assemblies important in fundamental cellular processes and human disease.
The position is available immediately and fully funded for up to four years. Thepostdocwill have the unique opportunity to work in a highly collaborative research environment on diverse projects such as investigating T cell receptor signaling and the regulation of kinetochore assembly and function. Thepostdocwill be able to independently pursue projects and grow their expertise in X-ray crystallography,cryo-EM and cryo-ET, withaccess to state-of-the-art lab equipment, high resolution cryo-EM technology and a virtually unlimited computer cluster for data processing.
The Department of Structural Biology at Genentech is a scientifically rich and highly stimulating research environment that has a strong track record in mentoringpostdocsand collaborating with other research groups at Genentech and in the academic community.
Who you are:

  • Completed or in the last year of a Ph.D. in structural biology, biochemistry or a related field of research.

  • Demonstrated expertise in protein purification, biophysical characterization and structure determination by X-ray crystallography and/or single-particle cryoEM of multi-protein complexes as shown by a strong record of first-author publications in high quality journals.

  • Experience in protein engineering, biophysical characterization methods for protein-protein and protein-nucleic acid interactions, such as surface-plasmon resonance (SPR), Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC), or bio-layer interferometry (BLI) and in vitroassay development will be beneficial.

  • Self-motivated and detail-oriented, driven to solve complex scientific problems independently and in a collaborative environment.
