One postdoctoral position is opened in the Statsyuk research laboratory at the University of Houston College of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacological and Pharmaceutical Sciences. The Statsyuk Laboratory is scheduled to move to a brand new research building in the fall of 2017. We are looking for highly motivated and self-driven postdoctoral fellows, who are willing to learn new interdisciplinary techniques and apply their scientific experience to a) conduct structural, mechanistic, and cell biology studies of ubiquitin and autophagy enzymes, and b) develop small molecule probes that target these enzymes to test therapeutic hypotheses. We work in close collaboration with Texas Medical Center and MD Anderson Cancer Center to conduct both: basic research and translational science. Our research group is highly interdisciplinary and employs such techniques as chemistry, biochemistry, protein chemistry, mammalian cell culture, masspectrometry, Cryo-EM, and protein crystallography. Many of our research directions are synergistic with MD Anderson Cancer Moonshots Programs. Ideal candidates should have chemistry or chemical biology training, be willing to learn new techniques, and be willing to apply for external postdoctoral fellowships.
APPLICATIONS: Applications will be taken until the position is filled. Please submit cover letter, resume, and a list of 3 references as a single PDF file to avstatsy@central.UH.EDU.
