Post-doctoral positions are available at the Laboratory for GPCR BiologyDepartment of Pharmacology & Chemical BiologyUniversity of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine
The Laboratory for GPCR Biology located at the Department of Pharmacology & Chemical Biology and funded by the NIH is seeking two candidates for post-doctoral fellowship positions to determine signaling mechanisms underlying the function of PTH-receptor and other GPCRs at theatomic/molecular level using Protein Biochemistry, Mass Spectrometry, X-ray Crystallography, NMR and/or Single Molecule approaches (position #1), and cellular level using TIRF/confocal/epifluorescence microscopy (position #2). The information obtained through this research will advance the development of new therapeutics for bone and mineral diseases, including medications for osteoporosis and hypocalcemia.
Preference will be given to PhD or MD/PhD applicants with a solid experience in Biochemistry, Structural Biology or Cell Biology using FRET/BRET, and with at least 2 first-authored articles published in international journals.
The University of Pittsburgh is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employers with strong institutional commitments to diversity. Women and minority candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.
