Post-doctoral Fellow: Metals in DNA repair We have exciting opportunities for a post-doctoral fellow to pursue research on underlying mechanisms of arsenic carcinogenesis. This project is funded through an NIH ARRA award. The successful candidate(s) will be an integral member of a team of scientists. The objective of the project is to test functional determinants of high affinity arsenite binding to certain DNA repair proteins. The selected applicant(s) will work closely with Profs. Laurie G. Hudson and Ke Jian (Jim) Liu at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM. MORE
Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Structural and Functional relationship of nitric oxide Synthesis A postdoctoral research associate position is open immediately to study structural and functional relationship of nitric oxide synthase. The candidate will combine biochemical, biophysical, and molecular biology approaches to address the molecular mechanisms in regulation of nitric oxide synthase. Responsibilities include but not limit to expression and purification of nitric oxide synthase and calmodulin proteins/mutants, rapid kinetics studies, and preparation of enzyme intermediates for spectroscopy studies.
Requirements: Ph.D. in Bioinorganic Chemistry, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology or a related field with a record of peer-reviewed publications. Applicants should have experience in protein expression and purification, potentiometric titration, or rapid kinetics (stopped flow or flash photolysis). A strong background in molecular biology and experience in protein biochemistry is desirable. The ideal candidate should be highly motivated with demonstrated ability to carry out independent research.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, including a list of peer reviewed publications, a brief description of research activities, and the contact information for three references. Interested applicants should e-mail materials to: Jim Feng, Ph.D., College of Pharmacy, 2502 Marble NE, MSC09 5360, 1 University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131, USA, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org , Phone: 505-925-4326
