One postdoctoral position is available for a Fall 2019 start date, sponsored by an NIH R35 MIRA grant. The successful candidate will study the dynamics of T cell receptor complexes by a range of biophysical techniques, including NMR, EPR and cryoEM in combination with Rosetta structure modeling tools.
A background in protein biochemistry with experience in structural biology techniques is strongly desired.
If you are interested please send a CV together with a brief letter of introduction, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent by email to the address: nsgourak at ucsc dot edu
Graduate student research fellowships
Please apply to the Graduate Training Program in Biomedical Science and Engineering or directly to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Graduate student support is provided through an NIH RO1 project grant to study the mechanism of MHC-I peptide exchange. Graduate students at the Sgourakis Lab gain hands on expertise in the use of NMR and other structural and computational tools to study dynamic protein complexes.
