Job DescriptionWe are seeking highly self-motivated candidates for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in an NIH-funded lab at the Blood Research Institute (BRI), Versiti (https://www.versiti.org/research/blood-research-institute).
The lab is mainly interested in understanding the structural basis of receptor transmembrane signaling using techniques of biochemistry, cell biology, and structural biology. Current studies focus on the structural regulation of cell surface receptors including integrins and receptor tyrosine phosphatases, and the cell-fusion mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, with the goal of developing strategies to modulate their functions under disease conditions such as thrombosis, cancer, inflammation, and COVID-19.
Qualified applicants must have strong knowledge and research experience in structural biology (protein crystallography, EM, or NMR), biochemistry or cell biology.
Candidates who received their Ph.D. recently with an outstanding publication record in structural biology, protein science, or cell biology are welcome to apply.
Applicants must be able to work independently and have excellent written and oral communication skills in English. The position offers a competitive salary and excellent training environment for career development.
The BRI is located adjacent to the Medical College of Wisconsin on the campus of the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center (MRMC), which is also home to Milwaukee’s major teaching hospitals, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin (CHW) and Froedtert Hospital (FH). The proximity of the BRI to the basic and clinical research programs of these institutions promote productive environment for collaboration. We provide competitive salary and benefits for postdoctoral fellows.
Interested applicants should email 1) a cover letter stating research accomplishments, research interests, and career goals, 2) curriculum vitae, 3) a list of three references with contact information including mailing and E-mail address, and phone number to: http://u.rfer.us/BCWxBf1Wv
