Postdoctoral Research Associate- Drew Lab, Department of Biological Sciences (Job ID #142867)
The Drew Lab is accepting applications for a highly motivated and ambitious Postdoctoral Research Associate interested in studying macromolecular assemblies. The research in the Drew Lab has several ongoing projects focused on the identification, characterization, and modulation of assembly activity. Most projects aim to understand general principles of assemblies, but we also aim to better understand the role assemblies play in specific diseases such as ciliopathies. We do this using high throughput proteomics, machine learning, and molecular modeling. Further information about our current research can be found at ksdrew.github.io.
Candidates from multi-disciplinary backgrounds are welcome to apply, including those in computer science, chemistry, engineering, and biology. Willingness to learn new approaches, both experimental and computational, is essential.
- Act independently in terms of planning and executing the experiments;
- Compile, analyze, and prepare data for publications;
- Assist with training of graduate and undergraduate students.
- PhD in computer science, chemistry, engineering, biology, or related background; completed within the past 5 years.
- A strong foundation in proteomics, structural biology, programming, and mammalian cell culture with a record of productivity and impactful publications.
Preferred qualifications (experience in any of the following is also desirable):
- Experience with data science and machine learning methods (e.g. python, pandas, scikit-learn, keras, tensorflow)
- Experience with structural modeling or design (e.g. Rosetta, Integrated Modeling Platform (IMP), Haddock)
- Experience with HPLC and mass spectrometry
- Experience with culturing and differentiating iPSC cells
Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should send an email to Kevin Drew (firstname.lastname@example.org) including CV, cover letter explaining your interests and contact information for three references by March 15, 2021.
