Postdoctoral Associates / Visiting Investigators / Interns

An exciting, NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Williamson laboratory at the Scripps Research Institute. The overall goal of the lab is to study the structure and function of ribonuceloprotein complexes using a wide variety of biophysical approaches. We study a range of systems in bacteria, yeast, and human cells, with a focus on the assembly of macromolecular complexes. Much of our research is devoted to the dynamics of ribosome assembly, assembly of RNA, protein, and lipid in HIV, and the dynamics of the bacterial proteome.

We use a unique and powerful combination of approaches including mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, single molecule fluorescence, and super resolution light microscopy. The laboratory has access to cutting edge equipment and technology in all of the above areas.

Applicants with prior experience or interest in mass spectrometry, electron microscopy, electron tomography, or superresolution light microscopy are strongly encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral candidate will have an opportunity to undergo cross disciplinary training. A successful candidate will have strong background in chemistry, biochemistry, cell biology, or biophysics, and experience with computational biology.

Other qualifications include a Ph.D. (a pending doctoral degree may be considered with approval of the Principal Investigator) in a relevant field and a strong track record of peer-reviewed publications (or currently under review/BioRxiv). Qualified candidates with interest in this training opportunity should send a curriculum vitae and contact information for three references to Julia Polay at Compensation will be commensurate with experience.
