Postdoctoral Researcher
Job ID: 76029
Division: Physical Biosciences (Joint BioEnergy Institute)
Date Opened: 6/5/2013

Summary: A postdoctoral position is available at the Joint BioEnergy Institute in Emeryville to work on proteins involved in plant cell wall synthesis. To learn more about JBEI visit: http://www.jbei.org/

Duties: Implementation of methods for the cloning, protein expression, and purification for glycosyl transferases, typically using the Gateway system for gene manipulation. Transformation of host organisms for protein expression, followed by assay of protein expression, and scale up of expression and sample processing (such as deglycosylation). Purification of proteins for biochemical and structural studies. Expression in multiple systems, including E. coli, yeast and insect cells.

Qualifications: a Ph.D. in biochemistry, molecular biology, structural biology, or a related field. Demonstrated experience with protein expression, especially in systems other than E. coli. First-author publications demonstrating prior results in the area of protein expression. Experience with cloning methods and protein purification methods. Strong problem solving skills. Solid interpersonal skills and the ability to work in a team environment are critical. Experience with the practical aspects of structure solution by X-ray crystallography would be helpful but not essential.
