Dear all,

A postdoctoral position on structural biology is available to investigate the mechanisms and functions of phosphatase signaling complexes and their disease mutations in cancer and intellectual disability. We combine cryo-EM, x-ray crystallography, cell biology, system biology, biochemistry, computational biology, and bioinformatics to gain critical knowledge on complex phosphatase signaling network dictated by both allosteric structured cores and versatile signaling motifs. The research is performed in a highly multidisciplinary setting with basic scientists with expertise on Cryo-EM, biochemistry, cell biology, bioinformatics and chemical biology. We are well equipped for multidisciplinary research, such as powerful GPU computer, liquid handling crystallization robot, and live cell imaging system. In addition, our lab is conveniently located near multiple shared facilities. Our research is built on collaborations with more than 10 groups from US and Europe as well as dynamic collaborations on campus in both basic and clinical research. UW-Madison has highly collaborative research environment that easily establish novel collaborations.

We are seeking productive, and motivated individuals with excellent organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills. We expect our candidates have strong expertise in either cryo-EM or x-ray crystallography, and protein biochemistry. We also expect our candidates feel comfortable to apply system biology and in-house bioinformatic tools and work both independently and by collaboration toward personalized medicine for phosphatase diseases.


The starting salary for promising candidate will be $48,000 or above.


Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. To apply: Please send a cover letter, CV and the names and contact information for three references to Dr. Yongna Xing via email: xing@oncology.wisc.edu.


Under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.



Warm regards,
