PostDoctoral Position in Membrane Protein Structural Biology at USC, Los Angeles
The position is available starting January 2021 in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Southern California and is initially limited to 2 years, with possible extension.
Our research focuses on the structural biology of important membrane proteins, using single particle cryoEM and X-ray crystallography. We are working in close collaboration with the group of Prof. Vadim Cherezov (USC) on the structural biology of GPCRs. External collaborations include the group of Prof. Dirk Slotboom (Univ. of Groningen) and Prof. K. Chris Garcia (Stanford University).
USC has a suite of research facilities and is in the process of installing a new CryoEM center:
Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. degree with a solid background in structural biology and biophysics/biochemistry. Previous work with membrane proteins is a plus. A successful candidate is expected to be highly skilled and self-motivated and is willing to work in a collaborative environment. The Postdoctoral salary depends on qualifications and relevant experiences according to USC standards.
Interested candidates should apply directly with Cornelius Gati at cornelius.gati[at]gmail.com. Please attach a cover letter, Curriculum Vitae, research statement, publication list and a reference letter. The deadline for the application is September 30th 2020.
