Postdoctoral Position Available - December 2016
Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biochemistry and Structural Biology
The research group of Yunsun Nam at UT Southwestern Medical Center is seeking a postdoctoral fellow. Our laboratory is housed at the heart of the Cecil H. and Ida Green Center of University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Dallas offers many exciting activities, with affordable living costs and convenient housing options near the medical center campus. For more information, please visit the UT Southwestern website.
The overarching goal of our group is to elucidate the mechanistic details of gene expression, by investigating the structure-function relationship of various protein/nucleic acid complexes. We are particularly interested in the gene regulation pathways relevant to mammalian development and cancer, involving regulatory or noncoding RNAs. Postdoctoral fellows will have many opportunities to learn the newest methods in biochemistry and structural biology /biophysics, in addition to working in an exciting, fast evolving area in the field of biological and biomedical sciences. We use various approaches, including X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, electron microscopy, proteomics, molecular biology, nucleic acid and protein biochemistry, next-generation sequencing, and eukaryotic cell-based studies. For more information, please refer to the lab website: www.ynamlab.org.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and a strong background in biochemistry and/or structural biology. Interested individuals should submit a CV by e-mail to: Yunsun.Nam@utsouthwestern.edu.
