Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to work on crystallography of proteases. Experience in crystallography is preferred. In addition, the successful candidate should be well versed in one or more of the following areas: molecular biology, protein purification, and membrane protein biochemistry. The candidate must be within five years of attaining a PhD degree.
This is an opportunity to join a lab experienced in the _expression_ and crystallization of various enzymes, including soluble coronavirus proteases (https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.05.03.073080v2) and membrane proteins (See PNAS (2007) 104(3):750-4, and Science, (2003). 301:616-620),( http://www2.biochem.ualberta.ca/LemieuxLab/). The University of Alberta, located in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada), is home to a large and interactive community of biomedical scientists, and facilities for structural biology are excellent. Our department provides interaction with numerous crystallographers. The Canadian Light Source (CLS) synchrotron facility is located a short drive away. In addition, the membrane protein research group provides a dedicated forum for membrane protein research at the University of Alberta (http://www.mpdrg.com).
Edmonton, having a population of over 1 million, offers a cosmopolitan environment with world-class performing arts, sports, culinary and recreational opportunities. In addition, the city’s proximity to the Rocky Mountains including the towns of Jasper and Banff is an additional bonus.
