Biochemistry Postdoctoral Associate Job Opportunity @ UF Florida USA

CLASSIFICATION TITLE: Postdoctoral Associate

JOB DESCRIPTION:

A Post-Doctoral position is available immediately to study functional amyloid formation by Streptococcus mutans, particularly as it relates to biofilm development. The focus of this project is to characterize the ultrastructure and amyloid properties of the adhesion P1 and other amyloidogenic surface proteins utilizing solution NMR, DNP-enhanced solid state NMR, cryoelectron microscopy, and diffraction techniques to study their structure in fibrillar and nonfibrillar forms.
NMR facilities include eight spectrometers located at UF and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory ranging from 500-900 MHz, including a 600 MHz ssNMR instrument with DNP capabilities. Extensive facilities for protein production and purification, cryoelec­tron microscopy, x-ray crystallography, and high performance computing are in close proximity to the Brady and Long labs as part of the UF centers for structural biology and high performance computing.
This is a grant-funded position and is annually renewable based on the availability of research funds.
