Dear colleague,

I have openings for the two following positions in my lab. I am also
attaching a word document if you wouldn’t mind kindly posting it at an
appropriate place in your Department

*Postbac position*

Postbac position in my lab for two years starting from the coming summer.
The NIH Postbac IRTA program provides recent college graduates who are
planning to apply to graduate or professional (medical/dental/pharmacy)
school an opportunity to dofull-time research at the NIH.

For this position I am looking for someone who has experience with protein
purification, has good organizational skills and work ethics, and the right
mindset to pay attention to nitty-gritty details that are essential for
working with membrane proteins. The candidate should apply to the NIH
Postbac Program (https://www.training.nih.gov/programs/postbac_irta)  and
get in touch with me as well.

Postbac candidates have to be US citizens or permanent residents.

*Postdoctoral position*

There is an open postdoctoral position for a membrane protein
structure-function project in my lab at the NIH. We are currently focusing
on integral membrane enzymes (*Science. *2018,  doi:
10.1126/science.aao6326) and transporters of transition metal ions (*J Biol
Chem.* 2018, doi: 10.1074/jbc.M117.817478).

Here is the formal announcement -


*Position Description: *
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
combine structural techniques such as macromolecular crystallography and
cryoEM together with biophysical and biochemical methods such as
reconstitution based assays, high resolution microscopy and small molecule
screening 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, as well as access to 23-ID and 24-ID beam lines at the APS. NICHD
is now part of a consortium that has access to a Titan Krios on a regular
basis. Our laboratory is part of the Cell Biology and Neurobiology Branch
in the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development (NICHD).

The candidates should hold a Ph. D. degree (by the time of joining the
lab), be author of at least one first author publication and have a strong
background in biochemistry or structural biology. Experience with basic
molecular biology, protein expression, purification and biochemical
characterization are required. Prior experience in membrane protein
biochemistry or mammalian expression system for protein purification will
be added advantages.

It is absolutely essential the candidate is motivated and prepared to put
in the best efforts for fruition of the project goals. We are a small,
friendly lab and ability to work as part of a cohesive group is important.

Thanks very much in advance for any help and apologies for the bother.

Warm regards,


Anirban Banerjee
