Postdoctoral Scientist position, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York

A position for a postdoctoral scientist is available immediately in the Gavathiotis Laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the area of NMR-based structural biology and drug discovery. The laboratory's focuses on structural and chemical biology approaches  and operates at the interface of chemistry, biology and translational science with the goal to discover novel biological mechanisms that are causing or contributing to cancer and other diseases and develop novel therapeutics. The successful candidate will investigate molecular mechanisms of protein-protein interactions of mitochondrial cell death and survival signaling using modern structural biology approaches, and perform NMR-based and computational screening to discover small molecule inhibitors.

The successful candidate will benefit from access to outstanding resources in NMR, X-ray crystallography, crystallization robotic systems, protein production facilities ( E.coli and mammalian cells), biophysical analysis (MST, FP, ITC, SPR, DLS), proteomics, HTS screening, and Linux clusters for molecular modeling and other computational analyses. Our laboratory has access to high-field NMR including two in house 600MHz NMR spectrometers, a SampleJet autosampler, a Gilson robotic dispenser for NMR sample preparation in HTS and six NMR spectrometers at the New York Structural Biology Center (NYSBC) ranging from 500 to 900 MHz. NYSBC also provides access to additional resources in X-ray crystallography, Cryo-electron microscopy and Small-angle X-ray scattering.

The candidate will have a Ph.D. in a relevant area with a strong publication record demonstrating experience in multidimensional NMR data acquisition and analysis, protein structure determination, protein dynamics and protein biochemistry. Experience in additional areas of structural biology, biochemistry, biophysics, molecular modeling, chemical biology and structure-based drug design will be further appreciated. We are seeking candidates who are self-motivated, have strong work ethic, posses creativity and passion for scientific discoveries, and ability to work independently and collaboratively. The candidate should also possess excellent written and verbal communication skills. The salary and benefits for this position, including career development opportunities are highly competitive.

Applicants should send a cover letter, including 1-2 page summary of past and present research interests and accomplishments, and a curriculum vitae with names and contact details of three references.

Albert Einstein College of Medicine is located in New York in a scenic Bronx campus that includes comfortable, affordable housing in an area rich with recreation and entertainment. The scientific environment provides outstanding research training opportunities. Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
