Two Postdoctoral positions in ribosomal stress response

publié le

The Yap lab (Chicago, Illinois, USA) is seeking two postdocs to investigate the molecular basis of 100S ribosome biogenesis and/or antibiotic resistance in human
pathogen Staphylococcus aureus.

Beginning July 2019, the laboratory will be part of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Northwestern University, located in downtown Chicago.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in Microbiology/Biochemistry/Biophysics (or a closely related field) and should have less than 3 years of postdoctoral experience.

The ideal candidates will possess significant experimental training in biochemistry and genetics, as evidenced by at least one first authorship publication in peer-reviewed journals. Previous experience in RNA biology, and/or protein folding, and/or structural biology is highly desired.

The stipend level will be commensurate with years of experience according to the NIH guidelines.

Any inquiries should be directed to Dr. M.-N. Frances Yap,
