Postdoctoral Researcher Position

Posted on January 12,

A postdoctoral researcher position is available at the Laboratory of Medicinal Biophysics to study the structures of long-non-coding RNAs. The candidate will utilize molecular biology and structural-biophysical tools.

Motivated recent PhD graduates with a strong background in biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology, or cell biology are encouraged to apply. It is expected that the candidate will have proven their research accomplishments by peer-reviewed publications.

Our laboratory houses protein production core and utilizes bacterial, insect, and animal cell culture systems. We are equipped with chromatography units for the purification of biomolecules and their complexes, SEC-MALS-DLS for biomolecular characterisation, Tycho-NanoTemper to study protein stability, and Microscale Thermophoresis to investigate biomolecular interactions. We also have established a computational core for structural and molecular dynamics studies. Also, we have access to the state-of-the-art analytical ultracentrifuge facility in collaboration with Dr. Demeler, DIAMOND Synchrotron (UK) and Cryo-EM core facilities. 

We are located at the state-of-the-art Science and Academic Building at the University of Lethbridge. Lethbridge is situated in Southern Alberta, not far from the Rocky Mountains. The City of Lethbridge enjoys a sunny, dry climate that is surprisingly mild, has excellent cultural and recreational amenities. The University is located on the west side of Lethbridge and stretches across the coulees, with a great view of the Oldman River valley.
