A postdoctoral position is immediately available to join our ongoing effort of structure-based drug discovery. The particular project is to identify small-molecule inhibitors of target proteins that are involved in cellular signal transduction by using NMR-assisted ligand screening. The collaborative project is between St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and a biotech company; therefore, the postdoctoral fellow will have an opportunity to explore the research activities in the biotech industry. Candidates with a background in Structural Biology, Biomolecular NMR, Protein Chemistry, Biochemistry, Physical Chemistry and Chemical Physics are encouraged to apply.
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is a premier center dedicated to advancing the health of children with catastrophic diseases through biomedical research. The Protein NMR Resource at St. Jude is currently equipped with three NMR spectrometers, a Bruker Avanced 800 MHz spectrometer with cryoprobe, a Bruker Avanced 600 MHz spectrometer with cryoprobe, and a Varian INOVA 600 MHz spectrometer. In addition to a highly competitive salary, St. Jude offers postdoctoral research scientists an outstanding benefits package, including yearly professional travel funds. For consideration, please contact: Dr. Jie Zheng, Department of Structural Biology, MS 311, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 626 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105. email: Jie.Zheng@stjude.org.
