Two postdoctoral research associate positions in enzymology for two separated projects are immediately available in the laboratories of Dr. Robert Hausinger (Department of Microbiology & Molecular Genetics) and Dr. Jian Hu (Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology) at Michigan State University. Our NSF-supported project focuses on the Fe(II)/2-oxoglutate oxygenase catalyzing the dual reactions of ethylene biosynthesis and L-Arg hydroxylation (Biochemistry 55:5989, 2016; JACS 139:11980, 2018). Our second project, supported by NIH, focuses on biosynthesis of the nickel-pincer nucleotide cofactor and its use in catalyzing racemase or epimerase reactions (Science 349:66, 2015; PNAS 113:5598, 2016; PNAS 114:9074, 2017; Biochemistry 57:3244, 2018; JBC 293:12303, 2018; Biochemistry 57:5513, 2018).
For both projects, the successful candidate must be highly self-motivated and have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology or a related field with demonstrated expertise in molecular biology, protein purification, and enzyme characterization. Experience in crystallography is highly desired. The positions will be initially available for one year, with possible renewal based on mutual satisfaction. The first position has been posted at careers.msu.edu as position #593854 (http://careers.msu.edu/cw/en-us/job/502028/research-associatefixed-term) and we will be posting the second position soon. Meanwhile, potential applicants can contact Dr. Hausinger (email@example.com) and Dr. Hu (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly to obtain further details or to provide us with their CV and names of 3 references.
