20 Postdoctoral Position at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, USA

 

(01) Postdoctoral Position:

Summary of postdoctoral position: Our group has assembled a highly collaborative team of outstanding investigators with state-of-the-art expertise in molecular genetics, mouse modeling, cell and molecular biology, single cell biology, and translational research, thus allowing us to pursue a unique combination of genetic and molecular based approaches to discover critical pathways and cellular phenotypes that underlie the pathogenesis of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and other interstitial lung diseases.

(02) Postdoctoral Position:

Summary of postdoc position: My Lab has an open postdoc position to study how 2nd messenger signaling molecules alter the structure of nuclear receptor transcription factors. We recently used integrated biophysical techniques to determine the “unperturbed” ground-state structure of a full-length nuclear receptor bound to DNA. We now want to add regulatory ligands to this ground state to determine how activating or repressing small molecules (drugs and physiological ligands) alter the ground state structure of this protein. The techniques you’ll use will mainly be based on mass spectrometry (HDX and/or chemical X-linking). The ideal candidate will need to have an interest in helping others in the lab and have some skills in structural biology, protein expression/purification, SAXS, X-ray crystallography and/or mass spectrometry-based proteomics.
