Working in the Lab
Mechanism of Bacterial and Eukaryotic Translation
Posted on: Tuesday, August 16, 2011.
We are seeking talented and motivated postdoctoral fellow to study mechanism of bacterial and eukaryotic translation. We use ensemble and single molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer to study structural dynamics of the ribosome and translation factors. Applicants must have a recent Ph.D. and expertise in molecular biology with publications in international peer-reviewed journals. Applicants with experience in ribosome and RNA biochemistry and/or fluorescent spectroscopy are encouraged to apply
Please submit a statement of research interests and experience, and current curriculum vitae to Dr. Ermolenko.
Our lab is currently recruiting graduate students. Motivated candidates who are interested in studying mechanisms of bacterial and eukaryotic translation using ensemble and single-molecule fluorescent methods are encouraged to email Dmitri Ermolenko.
