POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITION

A postdoctoral research associate position is available in Professor Chunyu Wang’s group (https://science.rpi.edu/biology/faculty/chunyu-wang), in the Department of Biological Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, NY. 
Research in the Wang lab focuses on the structural biology of proteins involved in Alzheimer’s disease and Hedgehog signaling using solution NMR. The NMR facility in the Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies (CBIS) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) houses Bruker AVANCE 800 MHz and 600 MHz high performance digital NMR spectrometers. Both spectrometers are equipped with TXI triple resonance probes and TCI cryoprobes which have both cold proton and carbon channels. Both spectrometers are equipped for four channel operations and with 24-sample changers for drug screening. 
The Wang group has at least 50% time on each spectrometer. There is an additional 600 MHz wide-bore Bruker NMR spectrometer with dual solution and solid-state capability, equipped with a triple resonance CPMAS probe and a high resolution TXI probe. An Xtreme-60 high pressure system (Daedalus Innovations, LLC) can be utilized with any of three magnets, covering pressure up to 3 kbar.Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), founded in 1824, is the nation’s oldest technological university and has been recently named as a “New Ivy” by Kaplan/Newsweek college guide. 
RPI offers highly competitive benefits and is ranked #2 Best Private Sector Employer in the Capital Region of the New York State. The Capital Region offers many cultural and outdoor attractions such as Adirondacks and Berkshires. Boston, New York, and Montreal are only a few hours away by car.  
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer. Members of underrepresented groups including people of color, or with disabilities, and women are strongly encouraged to apply.
QUALIFICATIONS:
Eligibility for appointment as a postdoctoral research associate requires a Ph.D. in any relevant area with solid training in protein NMR. Knowledge and experience with NMR drug discovery and/or computational biology is a plus. Remuneration will be commensurate with experience. The successful candidate will be offered a one-year contract renewable upon satisfactory performance.
