Postdoctoral Fellow

Open: 12/15/20

Closes: 3/31/21

Job Code:  9560

Summary of Position: Postdoctoral Fellow to join large and dynamic lab. Our goal is to understand the fundamental molecular motions and interactions that are responsible for cellular movement, to determine the molecular bases of muscle disorders, and to devise novel therapies based on these discoveries. We approach this multidisciplinary problem with a wide range of techniques -- physiology, enzyme kinetics, molecular genetics, peptide synthesis, computer simulation -- but our forte is site-directed spectroscopic probes.
