Employment Opportunities

Postdoctoral Associate

Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics

The Center for Biotechnology and Interdisciplinary Studies at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute seeks candidates to fill Postdoctoral Associate positions in Structural Biology.

Our NIH-funded research program involves structural studies of viral protein – host protein complexes and  integral membrane proteins (IMPs), that are targets for antimicrobial drug discovery.  Projects involve structure-dynamic-function studies using integrative methods of  bioinformatics, NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS), and molecular modeling.

A successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in a field closely related to Structural Biology. Expertise in membrane protein biochemistry is highly desirable. Candidates with extensive experience in preparing IMPs but limited experience in structure determination are also encouraged to apply.  Salaries follow standard NIH guidelines.

Interested candidates should submit a CV/Biosketch and a cover letter. Please use email subject line “Structural Biology Postdoctoral Research Associate – Applicant’s Name” to montelionelab@rpi.edu.

We welcome candidates who will bring diverse cultural, ethnic, national and international perspectives to Rensselaer’s work and campus communities. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity, Race/Gender/Veterans/Disability Employer.
