Department: Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences

Job Title: Post-Doctoral Fellow

Position #: 00816388 – Requisition #:31321

Job Summary:

Two available postdoctoral positions aimed at investigating the molecular basis of mitochondrial homeostasis are open within Dr. Blake Hill's research laboratory at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO. Our research focuses on utilizing structure- and genetics-guided mutational analyses to elucidate the regulatory mechanisms governing mitochondrial quality control and their implications in human disease.

Joining our team offers unique prospects for professional growth, including opportunities to delve into drug discovery, employ quantitative approaches to mitochondrial biology, and foster collaborations with academic and commercial research groups.

Interested individuals are encouraged to apply promptly, as these positions present a great opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge research in the field of mitochondrial biology in a collaborative and supportive environment.

Key Responsibilities:

Position #1:

Requires a skilled structural biologist or mass spectroscopist with expertise in protein interactions.

The primary responsibility will be to define the composition and structures of mitochondrial protein complexes. In this role, the candidate will play a crucial role in understanding the intricate molecular organization of these complexes.

Position #2:

Requires a talented cellular biologist with specialization in yeast/mammalian cell culture, confocal and super-resolution microscopy.

The successful candidate will investigate the spatial organization of these mitochondrial complexes in both healthy and diseased states, thereby shedding light on their functional significance.

Work Location:

Onsite - this role is expected to work onsite and is located in Aurora, CO
