Membrane Proteins & Homeostasis

University of California Los Angeles, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Los Angeles, California

Position Description:

We currently have an opening for a Postdoctoral Associate in the laboratory of Dr. Tamir Gonen at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). The Gonen lab works toward understanding how membrane proteins help cells maintain homeostasis. To that end, they study channels, transporters, and receptors structurally and functionally. There is an exciting opportunity for a Postdoctoral Associate to join the team in the lab to engage in projects in membrane biophysics and biochemistry. This position will require a driven, creative individual who has membrane protein purification and expression experience, is willing to tackle novel challenges, and continually work towards process improvement. Ideal candidates will also be incredibly organized, personable, able to work independently, and have a strong desire to work collaboratively in the lab. More information about the Gonen lab can be found here.


  • Ph.D. is required
  • Experience in biochemistry of membrane proteins is required
  • Strong organizational and communication skills 
  • Highly self-motivated and able to work in a diverse laboratory environment 
  • Able to interact well with others and work as part of a team
