Postdoctoral Scholar

Description The laboratory of Stephen Benkovic in the Chemistry Department at The Pennsylvania State University seeks to fill a postdoctoral scholar research position with a highly motivated PhD candidate. This position requires an extensive experience in metabolic enzymology with particular emphasis in intracellular fluorescence microscopy and protein-protein interaction reporter assays to define the assembly and operation of metabolons in cells. With our discovery of the purinosome, a metabolon that is constituted from the six enzymes in the de novo purine biosynthetic pathway, we now ask questions about what other metabolic pathways operate through condensed phase metabolons and whether they are proximal to one another in a cell. The applicant should have recently received, or be scheduled to receive, a PhD by the time employment starts. The individual should be highly motivated and is expected to lead their own individual projects as well as contribute to collaborative research efforts. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, brief statement (1-2 pages) of research interests, and contact information of three references. All materials must be submitted electronically for consideration. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from the date of hire with excellent possibility of re-funding. Review of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. Employment will require successful completion of background check(s) in accordance with University policies. 82562
