NIH funded post-doctoral position
Conformational changes in clock proteins that keep circadian time
The Hardin lab at Texas A&M University has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral fellow to study molecular mechanisms that control circadian timekeeping and activity rhythms using Drosophila as a model system. These studies will employ biochemical, molecular, genetic and computational tools to determine how conformational changes in PERIOD (PER) and CLOCK (CLK) proteins drive circadian rhythms in transcription and behavior. Qualified candidates must have a PhD in biology/biochemistry or a related field, be able to work as part of an interactive team and possess excellent written and oral communication skills. Preference will be given to recent PhD graduates with experience in molecular biology, protein biochemistry, genetic analysis of gene expression, Drosophila neurogenetics and/or analysis of circadian behavior.
To apply for this position please send the following to email@example.com:
- A 1-2 page cover letter describing your research experience and career goals
- A CV that lists your research experience, technical skills and publications
- Contact information for three references
