Postdoctoral position in RNA biochemistry/ structural biology.

Posted on June 26,

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Conn lab at Emory University on a project investigating the molecular regulation of the 2’,5’-oligoadenylate synthetase family of innate immune proteins. This position will specifically focus on understanding the molecular basis of gain-of-function activity and implications for innate immune sensing of foreign (e.g. viral) nucleic acids. This position is supported by a new NIH/ NIAID award and is available for 12 months in the first instance with the possibility of extension. Please visit our website (link below) to learn more about our team and what we do.

The ideal candidate for this position will have a recent PhD with experience in RNA biochemistry, molecular biology, and/ or protein expression/ purification. Experience or interest in learning stuctural biology approaches or other biochemical or biophysical approaches (e.g. measurements of protein-protein/ protein-RNA interactions, HDX-MS) would be an advantage.

To apply, please use the Emory jobs URL for this position or directly e-mail a CV, brief statement of experience and scientific interests, and contact information for 2-3 references to [email protected]. Informal enquiries via email prior to making a full application are also very welcome!
