Hello Phenix community,

The Keedy Lab at the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center in New York City has a funded Postdoctoral Scholar position available immediately.  We seek applications from individuals with experience in computational biology, computer science, software development, biochemistry, biophysics, or a related area.  Details of research projects and career training will be tailored to the goals of the successful applicant.

Research:  The Keedy Lab is interested in the interplay between protein sequence, conformational heterogeneity, and biological function.  Using a unique combination of avant-garde computational and biophysical approaches, we aim to elucidate the conformational ensembles of proteins and to understand how they are shifted by perturbations, including temperature, pressure, mutations, ligands, protein:protein interactions, to control biological function.  The successful applicant for this open position will join these efforts by developing and using new computational approaches to exploit families of related structures, extract hidden signatures of conformational heterogeneity, and explore how changes to amino acid sequence rewire protein allosteric networks.

Location:  The CUNY Advanced Science Research Center (https://asrc.gc.cuny.edu) is a cutting-edge research institution, perched atop a hill overlooking Harlem in New York City.  Alongside its sister research building, the City College of New York’s Center for Discovery and Innovation, the ASRC sits in an oasis of green amidst upper Manhattan.  The ASRC Structural Biology Initiative features eight tenure-track and research-track faculty members, pursuing diverse research problems using X-ray diffraction, mass spectrometry, cryo-EM, NMR, solution biophysics, and advanced microscopy.  The ASRC is immediately adjacent to the New York Structural Biology Center, a consortium of CUNY and eight other New York academic institutions with world-class facilities, and is just 70 miles from Brookhaven National Laboratory, featuring the National Synchrotron Light Source II – the brightest synchrotron light source in the United States.
