A POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in drug discovery and chemical biology is available in the laboratories of Prof. Julia Kubanek (http://www.biology.gatech.edu/people/julia-kubanek) and Prof. Mark Hay (http://www.biology.gatech.edu/people/mark-hay) at the Georgia Institute of Technology, funded by the National Institutes of Health International Cooperative Biodiversity Groups (ICBG) program in collaboration with University of California – San Diego and University of the South Pacific in Fiji. The postdoctoral fellow will be located at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA, USA, and will be expected to discover new small molecule modulators of biological systems. In particular, expertise in any of these areas is desirable: NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, chromatographic separations, metabolomics, drug design, biosynthesis, synthesis of natural products, bioassay design, high-throughput screening. Thus, a Ph.D. with research experience in organic chemistry, biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, or a related field is expected.
The position is available immediately and will be initially offered for one year with the possibility of renewal dependent upon successful progress in research. The salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Interested individuals should send a CV, a letter describing career goals, and the names and email addresses of 3 references to Julia Kubanek by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Georgia Tech is a unit of the University System of Georgia and an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and requires compliance with Immigration Control Reform Act of 1986.
The Natural Products Discovery Groups (http://npdg.ou.edu) at the University of Oklahoma is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral research position in natural product chemistry. Experience in the areas of secondary metabolite purification (HPLC and other chromatography methods) and structure determination (NMR and MS data interpretation) is required. Prior experience culturing microorganisms is desirable, but not essential. Applicant must have obtained their Ph.D. by September 30, 2015 to be eligible for the position. Interested individuals should send a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information for three individuals that will provide letters of recommendation. Applicants will be evaluated based on the strength of their previous research experience and quality of their publication record. Applications will be evaluated as they are received and continue until the position is filled. Completed application packages and questions should be emailed to email@example.com. The Natural Products Discovery Groups is located in the Stephenson Life Sciences Research Center on the University of Oklahoma Research Campus. Our proximity to a variety of diverse University and national labs, as well as commercial ventures, creates a unique and stimulating research environment filled with opportunities.
Summary Description: This prestigious NIH-funded training grant provides two years of funding (with possibility for an additional year) in Dr. Ilya Raskin’s laboratory at Rutgers University, NJ, to join a multi-disciplinary project with the necessary laboratory training and coursework for establishing an independent research career investigating pharmacologically active compounds from plants. This grant aims to train highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to understand the biological effects of multicomponent botanicals on the complex interactions between genetic, molecular and physiological aspects of metabolic syndrome.
Minimum Requirements: Applicant must have a PhD and be a US citizen or permanent resident (green card holder).
Preferred Requirements: The candidate should have strong scientific credentials in the field of botanicals and human health and experience in biochemical isolation, pharmacological characterization and molecular mode of action studies of phytoactives.
Rutgers University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Fellowships start in May 2015.
Please send C.V. and the names of three references to Dr. David Ribnicky, Plant Biology and Pathology Department, Rutgers University, 59 Dudley Road, New Brunswick, NJ 08901 (firstname.lastname@example.org)
