Work type: Staff
Location: Newark
Categories: Full Time, Research & Laboratory

CONTEXT OF THE JOB:

Parashar laboratory at University of Delaware College of Health Sciences, is currently seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to perform structure-function studies of proteins regulating bacterial signaling. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in biochemistry and structural biology. A working knowledge of drug screening and computational modeling of protein-ligand interactions is a plus. Candidates with demonstrated success in another field and a strong commitment to learning the crystallographic process will also be considered. The candidate must be extremely self-motivated and dedicated, be able to work very hard independently but also to synergistically interact with other lab members.

 

RESPONSIBILITIES:
