|Department Name:||Integrative Structural and Computational Biology|
|Position Type:||Full Time|
|Position Title||Postdoctoral Associate - Izard Lab|
|Position Summary:|| |
Postdoctoral Research Associate positions are immediately available for several projects including structure-function studies of cytoskeletal proteins that control signaling downstream of adherens junctions and focal adhesions. Fellows will join an exciting research environment in new state-of-the-art facilities of the Scripps-Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), which is renowned in the Structural
Scripps-Florida provides an incredibly rich scientific environment. Notably, TSRI faculty include an outstanding cadre of senior colleagues, including two Nobel Laureates and twenty Members of The National Academy of Sciences, including several in crystallography and biophysics. In 2008, Scripps-Florida moved into three new, state-of-the-art research buildings and will expand to eventually house 80 faculty-level investigators.
Scripps-Florida has a large cast of outstanding Cores that facilitate basic research and drug development. The unique infrastructure at Scripps-Florida includes the application of unique chemical, genomic, proteomic, informatics, and high-throughput screening and engineering tools for the discovery of novel biomolecules.
Scripps-Florida is a member of the South East Regional Collaborative Access Team (SER-CAT) that constructed two beam lines at the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory. The insertion device and bending magnet beam lines are available for all the synchrotron-related data collection needs for the post-doctoral fellows.
