[ccp4bb] Postdoc position at UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas

The laboratory of Dr. Yogesh Gupta at University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (UT Health San Antonio™) is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic Postdoctoral Fellow with strong interest in structural and mechanistic studies on protein-nucleic acid complexes implicated in post-transcriptional gene regulation and chromatin biology. We combine various structural biology tools (X-ray, NMR, cryo-EM, AUC, SAXS) with in silico, and cell-based methods to address basic mechanistic questions, and exploit this knowledge for drug discovery. Our well equipped lab is physically located within the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute (Greehey CCRI) at UT Health San Antonio. In addition, we have full access to an extensive array of institutional core facilities (Biochemistry core, CIDD, Research core labs), and regular access to synchrotron beamlines.

Applicants with demonstrated experience in protein biochemistry and structural biology, and a keen interest in studying large macro-molecular assemblies are preferred. Candidates are expected to possess strong organizational, interpersonal skills, and ability to work as part of a team. Candidate should hold (or soon expect to hold) a PhD or equivalent degree in a related discipline. Prior experience in X-ray crystallography, biophysical methods (SPR, AUC, ITC etc.), and enzyme kinetics is desirable.

Salary is competitive. San Antonio offers affordable cost of living and there is no state income tax in Texas.
