Postdoctoral researcher

Job Description


A NIH-funded post-doctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Seok-Yong Lee at the Duke University School of Medicine to study the structural and mechanistic basis of membrane transport processes. The labs current research focuses on three membrane transport processes: Ca2+ permeation in somatosensation, drug/metabolite transport, and polysaccharide transport in microbial cell wall synthesis. The Lee Lab applies a broad multidisciplinary approach to examine these processes using structural (cryo-EM), biochemical, biophysical, chemical biology, and computational methods. The successful applicant will work on advancing our mechanistic understanding of somatosensation into broader biological contexts.

Recent publications from the lab are

Yin et al., Science, 2022

Wright, Fedor, et al., Nature, 2022

Ren et al., Nat. Struct. & Mol. Biol. 2022

Kwon et al., Nat. Communs. 2022

Kwon et al., Nat. Struc. & Mol. Biol. 2021

Suo et al., Neuron, 2020

Yin et al., Science, 2019

Further information can be found on the Lee lab website (https://sites.duke.edu/leelab/ ).

This is a great opportunity for talented biochemists/structural biologists interested in linking structural biology to sensory neuroscience who would enjoy being embedded in a scientifically diverse and highly collaborative group. A strong background in either cryo-EM or membrane protein biochemistry is a plus, but not required.
