The Polikanov Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Chicago (IL, USA) is
looking for a talented, skillful, and highly motivated researcher to fill
the available *NIH-funded Post-Doctoral Scholar *position to study the
structure and function of the bacterial ribosome.

The research in the Polikanov Laboratory is focused on understanding the
basic principles of protein synthesis in bacteria, the modes of action of
ribosome-targeting antibiotics, and the mechanisms of drug resistance at a
structural level. More information about Dr. Polikanov research can be
obtained from the most recent publications
or found on the web-page (https://bios.uic.edu/bios/people/faculty/yury-
polikanov). The successful candidate will be involved in the determination
of high-resolution structures of ribosome functional complexes with various
protein translation factors, tRNAs, and antibiotics using macromolecular
X-ray crystallography and potentially cryo-EM techniques.

*Basic qualifications:*

   - PhD in chemistry, biochemistry
   or a related field;
   - Practical skills with the most standard methods currently used in
   molecular biology, and biochemistry (such as protein expression,
   - Experience in structural biology (cryo-EM or X-ray crystallography);
   - Experience in RNA biology field is desired;

*The successful candidate is also expected to:*

   - Act independently in terms of planning and executing the experiments;
   - Compile, analyze, and prepare data for publications;
   - Assist with training of graduate and undergraduate students.

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the
position is filled. Interested candidates should send their CV, cover
letter, and contact information for three references directly to Dr. Yury
Polikanov at yuryp at uic.edu. *In the cover letter, the applicant should
how his/her previous research accomplishments and scientific interests fit
with the scope of the research in the Polikanov research group.*
