The Natural Products Research Group in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cape Town (UCT), together with the MRC/NHLS/UCT Molecular Mycobacteriology Research Unit (MMRU) – which constitutes the UCT node of the DST/NRF Centre of Excellence for Biomedical TB Research, is seeking suitable applicants for a postdoctoral research position in natural products drug discovery for tuberculosis.
Only candidates with extensive experience in natural products purification and isolation (HPLC and other chromatography techniques) and structure elucidation (NMR and MS data acquisition and interpretation) will be considered. Experience in molecular biology and microbiology (culturing microorganisms, PCR, etc) will be considered an advantage. Responsibilities will include performing research, writing research publications and grants, and training students.
Applicants must have a recent PhD in natural products chemistry or a closely related discipline.
The Fellowship is available immediately for an initial period of one year and will be renewable depending on satisfactory academic progress, as required by the University’s policies, procedures and practices for Postdoctoral Fellows. The amount of the Fellowship will be commensurate with the experience of the preferred candidate.
Interested individuals should send a CV, cover letter describing career goals, and the names and contact information of three referees to Dr Sunassee by email (email@example.com).
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 this will continue until the position is filled. The University retains the right to make no appointment at all.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 (email@example.com)
