Postdoc Wanted!!

We are looking for a postdoc to work on the bacterial H-NOX signaling project!

The successful applicant will have daily access to regioinally unique, high-resolution UPLC/MS platforms and will have excellent opportunities for manuscript publication and presentataion. All applicants must have or will have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Chemistry, Microbiology or related field at the time of appointment. Competitive applicants will have significant experience with mass spectrometry based proteomics, sample preparation methods for proteomic analysis, and a strong record of publication in reputable journals. The ideal candidate will also be proficient in basic microbiology, biochemistry and molecular biology techniques and have some experience with proteomics software including open source resources.

In the Yukl lab, we are interested in investigating the structure and function of bacterial metalloproteins with the long-term goal of developing improved antibiotic therapies for resistant infections. We use a wide range of molecular biology, biochemical and spectroscopic techniques to characterize metalloproteins involved in various processes including metal transport and environmental sensing. One major focus of the lab is the elucidation of previously unknown protein structures using X-ray crystallography. Two current projects in the lab involve the heme, nitric oxide / oxygen (H-NOX) family of sensor proteins and transition metal import by  bacterial ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters. Details on these projects can be found in the appropriate tabs.
