[ccp4bb] Postbaccalaureate and postdoc position in membrane protein structure and function lab at the NIH

Dear colleague,


I have openings for the two following positions in my lab. I am also attaching a word document if you wouldn’t mind kindly posting it at an appropriate place in your Department



Postbac position


Postbac position in my lab for two years starting from the coming summer. The NIH Postbac IRTA program provides recent college graduates who are planning to apply to graduate or professional (medical/dental/pharmacy) school an opportunity to dofull-time research at the NIH.

For this position I am looking for someone who has experience with protein purification, has good organizational skills and work ethics, and the right mindset to pay attention to nitty-gritty details that are essential for working with membrane proteins. The candidate should apply to the NIH Postbac Program (https://www.training.nih.gov/programs/postbac_irta)  and get in touch with me as well. 


Postbac candidates have to be US citizens or permanent residents. 




Postdoctoral position


There is an open postdoctoral position for a membrane protein structure-function project in my lab at the NIH. We are currently focusing on integral membrane enzymes (Science. 2018,  doi: 10.1126/science.aao6326) and transporters of transition metal ions (J Biol Chem. 2018, doi: 10.1074/jbc.M117.817478).



Here is the formal announcement -




Position Description: 
The research group of Dr. Anirban Banerjee at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking candidates for postdoctoral fellows . The broad interests of the lab are in membrane protein structure and function. We combine structural techniques such as macromolecular crystallography 
and cryoEM together with biophysical and biochemical methods such as reconstitution based assays, high resolution microscopy and small molecule screening to investigate the structural bases of the mechanisms of a number of membrane proteins.


The lab has state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. We have dedicated periodic access to the 22-ID beamline at the APS, for crystallographers at the NIH, as well as access to 23-ID and 24-ID beam lines at the APS. NICHD is now part of a consortium that has access to a Titan Krios on a regular basis. Our laboratory is part of the Cell Biology and Neurobiology Branch in the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). 


The candidates should hold a Ph. D. degree (by the time of joining the lab), be author of at least one first author publication and have a strong background in biochemistry or structural biology. Experience with basic molecular biology, protein _expression_, purification and biochemical characterization are required. Prior experience in membrane protein biochemistry or mammalian _expression_ system for protein purification will be added advantages.


It is absolutely essential the candidate is motivated and prepared to put in the best efforts for fruition of the project goals. We are a small, friendly lab and ability to work as part of a cohesive group is important.




Thanks very much in advance for any help and apologies for the bother.


Warm regards,
