Post-Doctoral Title Postdoctoral Research Fellow Categories Academic, Post-Doctoral Organization Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy, University of Hawaii Location Hilo, Hawaii Website http://pharmacy.uhh.hawaii.edu/research/cao-lab Contact email@example.com Job Information The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Daniel K Inouye College of Pharmacy at the University of Hawaii at Hilo invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position with a possible start date of December 01, 2019. We are especially interested in applicants with experience in natural product discovery from microorganisms (especially marine and endophytic fungi) and bioassay-guided natural product drug discovery. The candidate should be familiar with the use of a range of modern analytical and spectroscopic tools including HPLC, low resolution LCMS, HRMS, and NMR. The key chemistry skills required for this position include Isolation of Microorganisms, Fermentation, Isolation and Structure Determination, and simple Bioassays. The capacity to work in a team environment is also essential. Primary responsibilities will include research, project management, manuscript preparation, communications with collaborators, training junior lab members, ordering, instrument maintenance, and other duties. Applicants must have completed a Ph.D. degree in chemistry or a closely related field (postdoctoral experience preferred) by the time of appointment. Interested individuals should submit a SINGLE PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org containing the following: a COVER LETTER describing their interest in this position, a CURRICULUM VITA, and a brief description of research accomplishments and future research plans. Candidates should also request THREE letters of recommendation and have them sent directly to email@example.com. To ensure full consideration, all application materials should be submitted as soon as possible. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Title Postdoctoral Research Positions Categories Government, Post-Doctoral Organization The Molecular Targets Program (MTP) of the National Cancer Institute’s Center for Cancer Research (NCI’s CCR) has Location Frederick, MD Website https://ccr.cancer.gov/molecular-targets-program. Contact MTP_PostDoc@nih.gov. Job Information The Molecular Targets Program (MTP) of the National Cancer Institute’s Center for Cancer Research (NCI’s CCR) has postdoctoral positions available in its Protein Chemistry and Molecular Biology Section (PCMBS). The PCMBS uses its expertise in protein chemistry, biophysics, enzymology, molecular biology and screening to adapt CCR basic science laboratory findings into high throughput cell-free screens for the interrogation of pure compound and pre-fractionated natural product libraries. In addition, we use these same skills to discover and characterize novel bioactive proteins from natural product extracts that increase our knowledge of protein structure and function, address diseases and molecular targets of interest, and potentially lead to clinical development. 1. The first position is for scientists with experience in biophysical techniques such as isothermal titration calorimetry, differential scanning calorimetry and differential scanning fluorimetry assay systems. Additional experience in handling RNA, especially microRNA is especially desired. The selected candidate will be expected to continue investigations into novel natural product modifiers of miRNA thermal stability as well as additional projects using biophysical methods for the high throughput screening of natural product libraries. 2. The second position is for scientists with experience in molecular biology and protein chemistry. Applicants should have experience in the isolation, physical and functional characterization of proteins and enzymes, and in the genetic engineering of proteins for expression in E. coli systems. Additional experience in structural biology or the engineering of monoclonal antibodies and fragments thereof is highly desirable. The successful candidate will engage in efforts to isolate or engineer new bioactive proteins and peptides with activity against cancer and HIV. The positions are located at the NCI-Frederick Maryland campus. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell/molecular biology, biophysics or a related discipline from an accredited research institution within the last three years. The fellowship duration is for a maximum of 5 years based on performance and yearly evaluations. The fellowship is not restricted to U.S. citizens. The fellowship stipend starts at $54,100 per annum and is determined based on qualifications and years of relevant experience. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV with bibliography, and three letters of reference to MTP_PostDoc@nih.gov. More information about the Molecular Targets Program is available here: https://ccr.cancer.gov/molecular-targets-program. This position is subject to a background investigation. The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs; underrepresented minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Title Postdoctoral Research Associate in Mass Spectrometry Metabolomics and Natural Products Categories Post-Doctoral Organization UNC Greensboro Location University of North Carolina Greensboro Website https://spartantalent.uncg.edu/postings/14830 Contact firstname.lastname@example.org Job Information We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate to join a dynamic, diverse, and highly productive NIH funded research group at the University of North Carolina Greensboro. Our work focuses on the application of mass spectrometry to improve human health and treat disease. Several of our current projects involve the development of novel mass spectrometry metabolomics tools for characterizing complex mixtures, and the identification of new biologically active natural products for the treatment of drug-resistant bacterial infections. The PI (Dr. Nadja Cech) has an outstanding track record for mentorship, and has successfully placed former students and postdocs in academic and industry positions. She is highly experienced with supporting applicants in the publication of research results and in successfully securing NIH Fellowships. The ideal candidate will have earned a Ph.D. in mass spectrometry, analytical chemistry, medicinal chemistry, phytochemistry, pharmacognosy, and/or natural products chemistry and will have expertise and interest in developing and applying novel methodologies at the interface of mass spectrometry and natural products research. Experience with mass spectrometry metabolomics experimental design and data analysis and/or expertise in the isolation and de-novo structure elucidation of natural products are desirable characteristics. A willingness and ability to contribute to a team-oriented research environment, participate in student training, and communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, are essential.
