Cornell University (Ithaca, New York)
The Kellogg lab (https://www.kellogglab.org/) is an interdisciplinary research group at Cornell University that focuses on understanding mechanisms of transposon regulation using a combination of approaches including: structure (cryo-EM), computation, biochemistry, genetics, and protein design. We have used these approaches to understand the mechanisms governing CRISPR-associated transposons and other CRISPR and transposon systems. The Kellogg lab has led the field in understanding these transposons, with recent publications in Science (2021), PNAS (2022), and Nature (2023). We seek 1-2 postdoctoral researchers to join a creative and hard-working team in a collaborative environment in order to expand upon these research directions. Postdoctoral researchers will work on characterizing the mechanisms of novel systems or expanding upon current methods through cryo-EM method development or computational protein design.
Candidate qualifications include:
●PhD degree in any quantitative science (preferably biophysics, biochemistry, structural biology, computational biology, or computer science) is required.
●Expertise in cryo-EM or bioinformatics/genomics is highly valued.
●Expertise in machine learning (Pytorch) is very highly valued.
●Excellent organizational and communication skills are a must.
Applications are open until all positions are filled.
