A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of
Professor Samuel Butcher at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
The Butcher laboratory is funded by the NIH to investigate the structure and function of RNA-protein complexes that regulate gene expression. Additionally, the lab is currently determining structure activity relationships for small molecules that regulate non-coding RNAs that play roles in neurodegenerative diseases.
The Butcher laboratory is part of a vibrant research community at UW-Madison with state-of-the-art resources, such as the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison (NMRFAM) and a newly established cryo-EM facility that will soon house a Titan Krios, Talos Arctica and Aquilos FIB/SEM electron microscope.
The Butcher laboratory has established expertise in NMR, X-ray crystallography, SAXS, and myriad biophysical techniques. Additionally, we collaborate with local experts in cryo-electron microscopy. Thus, postdoctoral trainees in the Butcher lab are in a position to learn any aspect of contemporary structural biology.
Requirements are a PhD in biochemistry or related scientific field. If interested, please send CV by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
