A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the Zimmer lab at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. The lab explores how cells produce extracellular polysaccharides to form protective coats and capsules, cell walls, or biofilms.
Extracellular complex carbohydrates perform essential functions in all kingdoms of life and we strive to functionally reconstitute and structurally characterize various macromolecular complexes essential for their secretion. The lab has access to state-of-the-art cryo electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography facilities as well as single particle fluorescence and super-resolution light microscopes.
The University of Virginia has a particular strength in membrane biophysics and structural biology and is home to the Center for Membrane and Cell Physiology. The highly motivated candidate will join a diverse group working at the interface of structural and membrane biology, glycobiology, and biophysics. Candidates should have demonstrated expertise in cryo electron microscopy and/or crystallography, excellent skills in molecular biology and biochemistry, and at least one first author publication.
The University of Virginia is an equal opportunity employer. Applications from women and minorities are particularly welcome.
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact me directly by email for additional information (email@example.com).
