Proteomics/Structural Biology of Retina/Retinal Pigment Epithelium

National Eye Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

Position Description:

The position is located in Molecular Mechanisms Section, Laboratory of Retinal Cell & Molecular Biology (LRCMB), National Eye Institute (NEI), NIH. We are seeking to recruit an outstanding post-doctoral fellow to study proteomics and/or structural biology of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and associated proteins. The broad interests of our group are in the biochemistry and molecular biology of the retina and RPE; RPE retinoid metabolism proteins/enzymes; carotenoid metabolism enzymes.

Qualifications:

  • Candidates must hold an M.D./Ph.D. or Ph.D. in a cognate field, within five years of degree being awarded.
  • Must have first authorship on at least one peer-reviewed publication;
  • Have strong training in biochemistry/proteomics/structural biology with experience in protein/cellular fractionation/purification and protein characterization;
  • Prior experience in proteomics, membrane protein biochemistry, mass spectrometry, and/or structural biology will be an added advantage;
  • Have excellent writing and communications skills;
  • Candidates must be highly motivated and keen to develop technical expertise and career-enhancing skills;
  • The ability to work as part of a cohesive group is important as we are a highly collaborative lab.
