PostDoc / Graduates Vancouver

Postdoctoral and Graduate Student Positions in Biological NMR Spectroscopy at
the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada)

Postdoctoral and graduate student positions are available immediately at the
University of British Columbia to study (i) the regulation of eukaryotic gene
expression by post-translational modifications of the ETS transcription factor
family; and (ii) the electrostatic and dynamic basis of catalysis by enzymes
involved in the synthesis and degradation of carbohydrates. Representative
publications on these areas of research can be found at:

Our group is equipped with dedicated 500 and cryoprobe 600 MHz NMR
spectrometers, off-line computing, and a full wet laboratory for the production
and biophysical characterization of proteins involved in the above projects.

Postdoctoral candidates should have a publication record in NMR spectroscopy,
as well as basic laboratory techniques including basic molecular biology and
protein biochemistry. Salaries are in accordance with the Canadian Institutes
of Health Research postdoctoral and graduate student stipends.

The Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at the
University of British Columbia provide an exciting environment for research in
structural biology. In addition, the Vancouver area offers endless
possibilities for outdoor ocean and mountain activities.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and the names (plus
email addresses) of 2-3 referees to:
