Our job postings page advertises open positions for postdocs, students, faculty, and staff in SBGrid member laboratories and institutions. Please send brief descriptions to Michelle. Postings will remain online for 60 days.
We welcome postdoctoral applicants who are interested in the structural biology of human innate immunity and viral replication, using techniques of crystallography, solution biochemistry and cryo-electron microscopy. The vibrant intellectual environment of Yale University, the diverse and collaborative nature of my lab, coupled with state-of-the-art biophysical instrumentation facilities on campus, make the Pyle laboratory an ideal environment for studying the machinery of host-pathogen interactions and RNA-protein complexes. As described on our website (http://pylelab.org), our cutting-edge projects on innate immune receptors, viral replication proteins, and RNA tertiary structures have opened up new areas of investigation that are being pursued in labs around the world. If you are interested in joining our team, please send your CV, the email addresses of two references, and a cover letter explaining your interests and fit with our lab to email@example.com.

UMass Medical School
A postdoctoral position is available in the Schiffer laboratory at UMass Medical School to work on structural biology of proteins related to viral infections and drug resistance. UMass Medical School is home to a newly built state-of-the-art cryo-EM facility, with a vibrant research community in structural biology. To learn about the Schiffer Lab and research program, please visit: http://www.umassmed.edu/schifferlab Applicant must have (or expect to obtain shortly) a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Biophysics, or a related field. Previous experience and excellent skills in protein crystallography are required, including: protein expression/purification, protein crystallization, data collection, structure determination and analysis (and familiarity with the latest generation software in the field). Additional experience in the following areas is a plus: small molecule binding to proteins, molecular dynamics simulations, and enzyme kinetics. Crystal structures will include potential co-crystal structures with small molecules, nucleic acids and protein-protein complexes. The candidate is expected to complement crystallographic data with biochemical and biophysical assays, work closely with a diverse interdisciplinary research team, and be motivated to acquire new experimental and computational skills – including potentially cryo-EM. MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS: A Ph.D. degree in Biochemistry, Biophysics, or a related field Proficient in Protein Crystallography (protein crystallization, data collection, structure determination and analysis) Experience in protein expression and purification Ability to work in a multidisciplinary team environment Please send a cover letter explaining your fit for the position and your CV to: SchifferLab@umassmed.edu

Postdoctoral/Research Associate positions (2) in the Chazin laboratory at Vanderbilt University are available for highly motivated cell biologists, biochemists, and structural biologists to study multi-domain proteins and multi-protein complexes involved in DNA replication, damage response, and repair. Projects include investigating the mechanistic basis for DNA priming and inter-disciplinary research on the role of 4Fe-4S clusters and DNA charge transport in priming [e.g. O’Brien et al., Science 355, 813 & eaag1789, 2017]. These positions involve aspects of advanced protein engineering and cutting edge structural biology (integrated crystallography, SAXS, cryo EM, NMR and modeling), and are excellent opportunities to become experienced in the applications of advanced structural/dynamics analysis at the cutting edge of medicine and biology. Applicants will work in multi-disciplinary teams with an extensive network of collaborators working on fundamental biology and clinical applications, and will be encouraged to develop their leadership potential. Compensation includes moving expenses, a highly competitive salary and benefits. To apply, send a CV and at least two references to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories
Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in my lab at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to work on the structure and mechanism of gene silencing pathways or DNA replication. Please see our web page for more details (http://joshua-torlab.labsites.cshl.edu/).
Positions are available for highly motivated, outstanding applicants with a recent PhD and experience in single particle electron microscopy.
We are about to start installation a Titan Krios cryo electron microscope equipped with a K2 camera. Combined with the nearby NSLS-II coming on line, these are exciting times with exciting capabilities.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) provides a unique, stimulating and very collaborative environment for scientific interactions. Located on the North Shore of Long Island, CSHL is in a beautiful setting and is a wonderful place to expand one’s knowledge of biology in many different areas, particularly via CSHL’s internationally acclaimed Meetings and Conferences, which our postdocs can freely attend. For details about CSHL please see our web site at: http://www.cshl.edu/
Please send CV, list of publications, a summary of research experience and interests, and contact information of three references.
