A position is available at Yale School of Medicine for a postdoctoral associate in GPCR crystallography. The range of techniques used for these projects includes molecular biology, Sf9 expression, flow cytometry, purification of membrane proteins, thermal screening for stability, fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP), and lipidic cubic phases (LCP) crystallization, X-ray data collection at synchrotrons, and methods in structure determination.
The applicant should have a Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, biophysics, or in a related field. A strong background in membrane crystallography is preferred. A person who was recently awarded a Ph.D. degree or has less than 3 years of postdoc experience is preferred. The applicant must be both self-motivated and team-oriented working other members of the lab. Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, CV, and three letters of recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our lab offers a number of exciting thesis projects for Yale graduate students with passion in mechanism of action of proteins, protein crystallography, and drug discovery. PhD candidates who want to have a research career in either of these fields should contact Elias Lolis to discuss about the research opportunities that the lab offers.
