A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit headed by Dr. Antonina Roll-Mecak to work on structural studies of microtubule regulators. Research in the Roll-Mecak lab focuses on understanding the interplay between microtubules and their regulators and how tubulin post-translational modifications tune the behavior of motors and microtubule associated proteins (see for instance Garnham and Roll-Mecak, 2012; Szyk et al., 2011). We use a combination of biochemistry,structural biology, cell biology and single-molecule fluorescence techniques and a member of this lab will have an opportunity to be exposed to all these areas.

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline with a strong publication record and expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry and crystallography. The position offers a generous salary and benefits package. Please send a CV, a one-page research experience summary and contact information of three references to Antonina@mail.nih.gov Please write “Fellow- structural biology” in the subject header.
