*NIH/NSF-Funded Post-Doctoral Positions in Structural Biology at the
University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) to Study the Ribosome*

Prof. Polikanov Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago (IL,
USA) is looking for a talented, skillful, and highly motivated researchers
to fill the *NIH/NSF-funded Post-Doctoral Scholar *positions to study the
structure and function of the bacterial ribosome.

The research in the Polikanov Laboratory is focused on understanding the
basic principles of protein synthesis in bacteria, the modes of action of
ribosome-targeting antibiotics, and the mechanisms of drug resistance at a
structural level. More information about Dr. Polikanov research can be
obtained from the most recent publications
or found on the web-page (
https://bios.uic.edu/bios/people/faculty/yury-polikanov). The successful
candidate will be involved in the determination of high-resolution
structures of ribosome functional complexes with various protein
translation factors, tRNAs, and antibiotics using macromolecular X-ray
crystallography techniques.

*Basic qualifications:*

   - PhD in chemistry, biochemistry
   or a related field;
   - Practical skills with the most standard methods currently used in
   molecular biology, and biochemistry (such as protein expression,
   - Experience in structural biology (cryo-EM or X-ray crystallography);
   - Experience in RNA biology field is desired;

*The successful candidate is also expected to:*

   - Drive projects forward;
   - Act independently in terms of planning and executing the experiments;
   - Compile, analyze, and prepare data for publications;
   - Assist with training of graduate and undergraduate students.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the
position is filled. Interested candidates should send their CV, cover
letter, and contact information for three references directly to Dr. Yury
Polikanov at yuryp at uic.edu. *Cover letter should be **describing how
previous research accomplishments and scientific interest of a candidate
fit with the scope of the research in the Polikanov Lab.*
