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 (email@example.com).
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.
NIH T-32 Fellowship:
Botanical Approaches to Combat Metabolic Syndrome
The primary aim of this prestigious training grant is to train postdoctoral fellows to understand the biological effects of multicomponent botanicals on the complex interactions between genetic, molecular and physiological aspects of metabolic syndrome.
The fellowship 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 NIH-funded project with the necessary laboratory training and coursework for establishing an independent research career investigating pharmacologically active compounds from plants. The candidate should have strong scientific credentials in the field of botanicals research and human health and wish to pursue program of research and study that combines these areas. Applicant must be a US citizen or Permanent Resident (green card holder).
We seek a postdoctoral fellow with strong scientific credentials and a background in natural products and medicinal chemistry, knowledge of pharmacology and pharmacological screening, skills in molecular and analytical techniques and a strong publication record. Rutgers University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Fellowships start in January 2015 (possibly earlier in the Fall of 2014).
At the 2014 ASP Meeting (Oxford, MS) please contact Dr. Ilya Raskin (firstname.lastname@example.org); phone 732-794-5600. Thereafter, 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 (email@example.com)
