Postdoctoral Fellow- Biological Chemistry, Dueber Lab


Job Description

The Position

A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Biological Chemistry to investigate molecular mechanisms underlying complex biology. Active areas of research include structure-function studies of protein complexes involved in cellular signaling pathways and how various post-translational modifications (e.g. ubiquitination, phosphorylation) regulate these pathways. Specific projects are ongoing in the areas of cancer biology, innate immunity and infectious disease. This position provides an opportunity to learn/apply a variety of biochemical and biophysical techniques, as well as, potential structure determination utilizing our state-of-the-art cryoEM facility.

Who You Are:

Ph.D. in biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology or related discipline. Successful candidates will be highly motivated to work independently on projects with significant biological relevance in a very collaborative, multidisciplinary group. Candidates should have a strong background in protein biochemistry and biophysical methods as evidenced by a first author paper published or accepted in a peer-reviewed journal. Previous cryoEM training/experience preferred for those candidates interested in pursuing structure determination in their postdoctoral project. Strong problem solving, communication and organizational skills are highly desirable.

Relocation benefits are available for this job posting.

The expected salary range for this position based on the primary location of California is $64,800 and $120,300.  Actual pay will be determined based on experience, qualifications, geographic location, and other job-related factors permitted by law.  This position also qualifies for the benefits detailed at the link provided below.
