Job Title: Postdoctoral Position in Structural Virology at Johns Hopkins
Job Number: 53732
Location: Baltimore, US
TWO (2) POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS are available in Chang Liu group in the Department of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry at the Johns Hopkins University, a private research and education institute with an excellent research environment and superb research facilities. We study coronavirus-host interactions in gene regulation using a combination of structural biology (cryo-EM, cryo-ET, and X-ray crystallography), single-molecule biophysics, protein-nucleic acid biochemistry, genomics, and cell biology (related publications: Liu C, et al. Nature (2019); Liu C, et al. Science (2021); Liu C, et al. Nat Rev Immunol (2021)). We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral applicants with strong expertise in structural biology, virology, immunology, molecular biology, cell biology, or a related field.
The positions are fully funded by NIH/NIAID for at least three years (The initial appointment is for one year with renewal upon satisfactory performance evaluations). The salary rate follows NIH and JHU guidelines.
- Ph.D. or an equivalent degree in structural biology, virology, immunology, molecular biology, cell biology, or a related field.
- Extensive experience in basic techniques (molecular cloning, cell culture, protein expression and purification, Western blot, flow cytometry, etc.).
- Expertise in structural biology, particularly cryo-EM, is highly desirable; prior experience in RNA biochemistry or cryo-ET is a plus.
- Candidates should be highly motivated, with good oral communication and written skills in English.
