This job is no longer available.

Responsibilities: The Research Assistant Professor will join an NIH-funded laboratory focused on ion channel biology. Research will include development of yeast-based assays to study multiple chloride-conducting ion channels, biochemistry-based ligand binding assays, and attempt to resolve a structure of a membrane-embedded protein using x-ray crystallography or NMR. The candidate will be expected to perform experiments, analyze data, and participate in the preparation of scientific manuscripts and grant submissions.

Qualifications: Qualified candidates will hold a Ph.D. in one of the biological sciences and have 3 or more years of postdoctoral experience. Candidates should have experience in yeast biology as well as structural biology (NMR and/or X-ray crystallography). Ideally, the candidate will have some background in ion channel studies. The candidate should be self-motivated, have good communication skills, and work productively in an interdisciplinary team.
