A Postdoctoral/Research Associate position in the Chazin laboratory at Vanderbilt University is available for highly motivated cell biologists, biochemists, and structural biologists to study multi-domain proteins and multi-protein complexes involved in DNA replication, damage response, and repair.  Projects include investigating the mechanistic basis for DNA priming and inter-disciplinary research on the role of 4Fe-4S clusters and DNA charge transport in priming [e.g.

The Debelouchina lab at the University of California, San Diego is looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our growing team. Our work combines NMR spectroscopy tools with chemical and cell biology techniques to study chromatin and gene regulation. This position will provide the candidate with the opportunity to apply and/or learn solid-state and solution NMR methods, protein and peptide synthesis, protein biochemistry, as well as cell biology techniques.

A postdoctoral position in biomedical magnetic resonance is available within the Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Section at the National Institute on Aging (NIA) of the National Institutes of Health, located in Baltimore, Maryland.

The Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry at Brown University has an Assistant or Associate Professor tenure track position available in the area of Structural Biology. We are seeking candidates with outstanding research and teaching abilities for a start date of July 1, 2018 and I would greatly appreciate your assistance in making the availability of this position known to potential candidates.

Joint postdoc position in the Chromatography and NMR departments, which has to be filled before Oct 1st.

The Grey group at the University of Cambridge invites PhD candidates to apply for a project involving advanced solid-state NMR method development combined with multi-spin quantum-mechanical computation. The application is characterization of hydrocarbon-bearing organic shales for potential gas or oil production. A full assay requires evaluation of the immobile organic phases in heterogeneous, mainly inorganic materials.

A 3 year postdoctoral position and a 3-year part-time (60%) technician position are available in the laboratory of Dr. Cyril Dominguez, University of Leicester.
