A postdoctoral position is currently available to study the structure and mechanism of mitochondrial RNA polymerase and related single-subunit RNA polymerases. Our lab uses a combination of x-ray crystallography, biochemistry and biophysical approaches to reveal how dynamic macromolecular machines like RNA polymerases and molecular chaperones carry out their complex reactions (see the following for a list of recent, representative publications: http://biochem.uthscsa.edu/~zollarsd/biochem/admin/faculty.php?displayID=49)
Applicants with a strong background in one or more of the following areas are encouraged to apply: biochemistry, molecular biology, x-ray crystallography, or biophysics. Experience with budding yeast would also be an advantage.
Applicants should send their CVs and contact information for 3 referees to: email@example.com.
