Postdoctoral position in biological solid state NMR

Postdoctoral position in biological solid state NMR

A postdoctoral research position in biological solid state NMR is available at the Department of Structural Biology at the *University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine*. The group of Patrick van der Wel uses solid state NMR to study various biological topics, predominantly through the use of magic angle spinning (MAS) solid state NMR. Particular research interests inlcude (1) Structural membrane protein studies focused on the interplay between the lipids of the lipid bilayer and the membrane-bound protein, (2) Investigations of amyloid fibril structure and formation.

The group has specific access to Bruker 800 and 600MHz magnets, which are well-equipped for solid state NMR, with multiple MAS as well as static solid state NMR probes. The department also features collaborative research groups with expertise in a variety of structural techniques, including solution state NMR, (cryo) EM, and X-ray crystallography. It is housed in a new research building and includes state-of-the-art equipment and wet lab resources.
