We are seeking outstanding biochemists with expertise in protein purification and/or protein engineering to join our new Protein Technologies Center (PTC) within the Structural Biology Department at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The PTC is a multidisciplinary team with capabilities in protein engineering, cloning, expression, purification, and analysis of proteins. The PTC is responsible for the optimization, production and assessment of difficult protein targets for structural studies, thereby supporting structural biologists and other researchers at St. Jude to focus on making big discoveries. This is a bench-based scientist role where you will be providing pivotal support to several projects both strategically and tactically.
The Department of Structural Biology houses state-of-the-art facilities for NMR (1.1GHz), CryoEM (Titan Krios, Artica), X-ray (robots) and Single Molecule (MicroTime 200); the PTC will work in unison with all the centers and will help to tackle important biological questions.
PhD in the area of molecular biology, biochemistry, protein engineering, or any related discipline.
A minimum of five (5) years of relevant and productive (combined) years postdoctoral research associate or five (5) years of combined academic experience at the postdoctoral level or above.
