Available Positions

Postdoctoral position in membrane protein structure and biochemistry

The research group of Dr. Anirban Banerjee at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking candidates for postdoctoral fellows.  The broad interests of the lab are in membrane protein structure and function. We will combine structural techniques such as macromolecular crystallography with biophysical and biochemical methods such as reconstitution based biochemistry, electrophysiology together with synthetic chemistry to investigate the structural bases of the mechanisms of a number of membrane proteins.

The lab has state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. We have dedicated periodic access to the 22-ID beamline at the APS, for crystallographers at the NIH.  The Cell Biology and Metabolism program is part of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Our lab also has an affiliation to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS).

The candidates should hold a Ph. D. degree, must be motivated and have strong background in biochemistry or structural biology. Experience with basic molecular biology, protein expression, purification and biochemical characterization is required.  In addition, prior experience in either membrane protein biochemistry or macromolecular crystallography will be added advantages.

Interested candidates can send an e-mail to anirban.banerjee@nih.gov with a CV and a summary of previous research experience and future interests.

Postbac position in membrane protein structure and biochemistry

We have an opening for a postbac position starting in the summer of 2018. Experience with basic molecular biology, protein expression, purification and biochemical characterization is required.  It is essential to have good lab organizational skills and enthusiasm for learning new techniques and following them to detail. Please apply to the NIH postbac program and send an e-mail to anirban.banerjee@nih.gov
