[ccp4bb] postdoc position in X-ray crystallography and EM

Dear ccp4bb,

Please see the ad below for a postdoc position. Thank you!



at Brown University, USA


The Deaconescu Lab at Brown University has one opening for a postdoctoral researcher. The laboratory's interest is the interplay between DNA repair and other cellular processes including transcription and chromatin remodeling, and is focused on elucidating the function and mechanochemistry of DNA-based motors using a combination of biochemical, biophysical and structural techniques. (e.g. X-ray crystallography, small-angle X-ray scattering, transmission electron microscopy). For examples of work, please see Dorich V et al. Genes & Development (in press), Le TT et al. Cell (2018), Vemu A et al. Science (2018), Kutter et al. JMB (2016), Szyk et al, Cell (2014), Deaconescu et al., PNAS (2012) and Szyk et al., NSMB (2012).  

         A successful candidate would be proficient with specimen preparation, data collection as well as the processing of data acquired using electron cryo-microscopy or X-ray crystallography and should also have the following qualifications: a Ph.D. in the field of structural biology or a related field; an established track-record of publications in peer-reviewed journals.  Experience in protein biochemistry would be a plus, but training and technical assistance will be provided if the project requires it. Must be highly motivated and work independently as well as in a team. Excellent spoken and written English are required. New Ph.D. graduates are encouraged to apply.

         Interested candidates should send a CV, one page research experience summary and contact information for three references to alexandra_deaconescu@brown.edu. Position is available immediately.  Please write Postdoctoral Candidate in the e-mail subject header.   Brown University, an Ivy League school, is located less than one hour away by train from Boston.   Lab webpage: https://deaconesculab.com
