Postdoctoral fellows should have prior experience in either macromolecular crystallography, or cell biology and protein chemistry, combined with strong skills in routine molecular biology, or experience with biophysical and kinetic analysis of ion channels using patch clamp techniques. Work in our lab, by its nature, cannot be done 9-5 and requires a deep passion that can only be filled by doing science. Postdocs, students, interns and the PI typically work 9-7 or longer and come in as needed on weekends to take care of cultures, change buffers, get ready for synchrotron trips, check on crystals and so on. We aim to do high impact science and work hard to achieve this. This is a good lab for people who are ambitious, excited by science, and who want to succeed and understand what it takes to achieve this.
Candidates interested in the post baccalaurate program at NIH must have prior experience in a research laboratory and a strong background in chemistry, biochemistry, or molecular biology, and be intersted in pursuing a career in basic science. We rarely take summer students.
