The Daniel Keedy Lab at the ADVANCED SCIENCE RESEARCH CENTER (ASRC) AT CUNY in New York City has available positions for a POSTDOCTORAL SCHOLAR and a LABORATORY TECHNICIAN starting in 2018. The lab’s goal is to elucidate the role of protein flexibility in allosteric regulation — and to use that knowledge to control the function of dynamic, biomedically important enzymes such as tyrosine phosphatases. To do so, we combine cutting-edge experimental and computational techniques in structural biology, including multitemperature X-ray crystallography, high-throughput protein:ligand structure determination, and new algorithms for modeling alternative protein conformations based on electron density maps.

a PhD in structural biology, biophysics, computational biology, or a related field; multiple years of experience studying proteins or other macromolecules; and excitement to try new techniques at both the bench and the keyboard. Familiarity with X-ray crystallography, a programming language, and the command line are preferred.

an MS, BS, or similar degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, or a related field; experience conducting research in a laboratory setting; and excellent organizational and communication skills. Experience with cloning, protein purification, and/or X-ray crystallography are preferred.

The ADVANCED SCIENCE RESEARCH CENTER (ASRC) at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY) elevates scientific research and education at CUNY through initiatives in five distinctive, but increasingly interconnected disciplines: STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY, NANOSCIENCE, PHOTONICS, NEUROSCIENCE, and ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES. The ASRC promotes a collaborative, interdisciplinary research culture with researchers from each of the initiatives working side-by-side in the ASRC’s core facilities, sharing equipment that is among the most advanced available. The ASRC is next-door to the cutting-edge inter-institutional NEW YORK STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY CENTER (NYSBC), and is also just 70 miles from the newly-constructed NATIONAL SYNCHROTRON LIGHT SOURCE II (NSLS-II), now the brightest synchrotron light source in the US.
