DescriptionUniversity of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Postdoctoral Fellow in Biochemistry, Biophysics or Pharmaceutical Sciences
Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
The University of ColoradoDenver l Anschutz Medical Campus seeks individuals with demonstrated commitmentto creating an inclusive learning and working environment. We value theability to engage effectively with students, faculty and staff of diversebackgrounds.
The Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences is seeking applicants for a full-time postdoctoral fellow position in biochemistry, biophysics or pharmaceutical sciences in the laboratory of Dr. David Bain. The research is focused primarily on understanding the causes of protein instability and aggregation in the course of vaccine development. This work is part of a multi-investigator, federally-funded project to identify approaches for mitigating protein aggregation to enhance vaccine effectiveness in target patients. Opportunities also exist to study the role of macromolecular interactions (both protein-protein and protein-DNA) in regulating gene expression. This work is focused on understanding transcriptional regulation mechanisms in the context of ongoing drug discovery efforts. For both projects, the successful candidate will work in a team-based environment, using multiple biophysical techniques to examine mechanistic aspects of macromolecular self-association, stability and aggregation. Salary will be based on the NIH stipend scale and commensurate with the applicant’s qualifications. This position is eligible for individual and dependent benefits, which includes medical, dental, disability and life insurance. Applicants, please apply electronically at www.cu.edu/cu-careers to job posting number 15953.
