[ccp4bb] postdoctoral position to study the structure and mechanism of microtubule modifying enzymes

Postdoctoral Fellowship

Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, USA


A postdoctoral fellowship opportunity is available in the Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit headed by Dr. Antonina Roll-Mecak to work on the structure and mechanism of tubulin posttranslational modification enzymes combining cryo-EM with in vitro reconstitution and fluorescence microscopy. For previous work from the lab, see Valenstein and Roll-Mecak, Cell 2016, Vemu et al., MBoC, 2017; Zehr et al., Nature Struct Mol Bio. 2017,Vemu et al., Science 2018; Zehr et al. Developmental Cell 2019. For more information please visit: https://neuroscience.nih.gov/ninds/rm_lab/. We are looking for Ph.D. graduates with a strong record of accomplishments and expertise in structural biology (X-ray or cryo-EM), in vitro reconstitution, or enzymology. Expertise in cryo-EM is not required, but preferred. The NIH has an outstanding Cell and Structural Biology community and the lab has regular access to state-of-the-art resources such as Krios, TIRF and lattice sheet microscopes. The NIH campus is 15 minutes by metro from downtown Washington DC with its fabulous museums, theaters, concert halls and has easy access to parks and bike trails. 

Please send a CV, a one-page research experience summary and contact information of three references to Antonina@mail.nih.gov  Please write “Fellow- cryo-EM tubulin code” in the subject header.


Salary and benefits will be commensurate with experience and qualifications. DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers. The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs
