Canadian eventPost-Doc/PhD in fragment screening/drug optimisation, the University of Montreal, Canada (Nov 27/19)

We have an immediate opening for a Post-Doc (or prospective PhD students) at the University of Montreal, Canada, in the laboratory of Katherine Borden.
Candidates should have an interest in drug discovery with an emphasis on biophysical and structural techniques for identifying and characterising interactions between proteins and small molecules. Further details can be found in the attached file or at the following link



Candidates with experience or an interest in fragment screening, and drug optimisation using NMR/Xray and other techniques are encouraged to apply; but applicants with experience in protein production, molecular biology, medicinal chemistry or biochemical assays will also be considered. Interested parties should apply to [ bordenlabjobs "at" gmail.com ]. Informal inquiries can be made to [michael.osborne "at" umontreal.ca ]

The project is based on a unique clinical application of the anti-vriral drug, ribavirin, against a subset of cancer (AML) patients that the Borden lab discovered, and is currently undergoing phase II/III clinical trials. A novel, multi-drug resistance mechanism ( ACS Chem Biol. 2019, 14(3):348-355 ) was identified during these trials involving the UGT-family of enzymes ( Nature. 2014;511(7507):90-3), which have been targetted in pilot projects with success (J Mol Biol. 2019 Jan 18;431(2):258-272).

Postdoc in micro-scale NMR with quantum sensors (Sept 6/19)

The lab of Victor Acosta (University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, USA) seeks to hire two postdoctoral researchers for projects developing quantum sensors, based on diamond NV centers, for micro-scale NMR spectroscopy.

The lab webpage is:

While working on the projects, postdoctoral researchers will:
- Apply quantum mechanics, magnetism, and optical microscopy to emerging new fields.
- Learn nanofabrication techniques in world-class cleanrooms (CHTM, CINT).
- Collaborate with partners in academia (UCSF, Berkeley, etc.), nearby national labs (Los Alamos, Sandia), and industry (ODMR Technologies, NuevoMR, etc.).

The project builds off of recent results from our lab (*denotes equal contribution):

Chemistry Faculty Positions at the University of British Columbia (including NMR spectroscopy / structural biology) (Aug 28/19)

Assistant Professor, Tenure Track

The Department of Chemistry at the University of British Columbia https://www.chem.ubc.ca/ is seeking outstanding new investigators for three full time tenure-track faculty positions, at the rank of Assistant Professor at its Vancouver campus. With over 60 faculty, over 240 graduate students and 60 dedicated staff members, UBC
Chemistry is one of the world’s top Departments, boasting outstanding research infrastructure, well-equipped shops and services and an unparalleled location on Canada’s beautiful west coast.

We are seeking candidates of exceptional scientific talent who have demonstrated success in their field for three positions:

Biological Chemistry
Inorganic Chemistry
Machine Learning in Chemistry

The positions require a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry or a related discipline and an outstanding research track record. Relevant postdoctoral experience is highly desirable. The successful candidate will develop and maintain an internationally recognized research program. As a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry, the successful applicant will be expected to effectively supervise graduate students, collaborate with other faculty members, obtain external funding, teach undergraduate and graduate Chemistry courses, and actively participate in departmental activities. Leading candidates will complement and strengthen the Department and University’s expertise in research and education.

The successful candidate will be eligible to hold an appointment at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level but a higher rank may be considered for applicants with exceptional qualifications and experience.

The anticipated start date is July 1, 2020.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under the B.C. Human Rights Code, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, racialization, disability,
political belief, religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First Nation, Metis, Inuit, or Indigenous person. Canadians and Permanent Residents of Canada will be given priority. Please indicate your legal status to work in Canada.

Applicants should upload a cover letter including a summary of research interests and fit to the position, a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, a detailed research proposal, a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, a statement describing your experience working with a diverse student body, as well as your past, present, and/or future contributions to creating/advancing a culture of equity and inclusion on campus or within your discipline.

Preferences will be given to candidates with a strong expertise in NMR spectroscopy (solid-state NMR preferred but not required) and other related directions, such as
modeling and programming.

A large variety of projects are available, including the development and application of solid-state NMR and DNP methods to elucidate the structure and dynamics of carbohydrates, proteins, and other biomolecules in cellular context. Other ongoing efforts also include the structural characterization of membrane proteins and the development of a carbohydrate database.

Please send application to Tuo Wang (tuowang "at" lsu.edu) with a CV and the names and contact information for three individuals willing to provide professional letters of support. Please do not hesitate to contact Tuo Wang if you have any question. For more information, please visit the website of our research group


Wang research group has a 400 MHz solid-state NMR spectrometer. We also established collaborations with NHMFL and frequently visit the high-field NMR facilities
at Tallahassee.

The LSU campus is located in Baton Rouge, the capital of LA, and was ranked as one of the top 20 most beautiful campuses in the US. I believe you will have a joyful and fruitful journey at LSU.

Postdoctoral position, Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at Texas A&M University (June 17/19)


A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Jae-Hyun Cho (Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics) at Texas A&M University. Our lab focuses on (1) understanding interactions between influenza viral proteins and host signaling proteins, and (2) the development of protein-protein interaction inhibitors.

To achieve our goals, we use a multidisciplinary approach combining biophysics, biochemistry, and chemical biology. Our lab mainly uses (but not limited to) NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography as our primary research tool. These biophysical analyses are corroborated by sophisticated engineering of target proteins using semi-synthetic chemical biology techniques.

For more information, please visit our lab web-page http://www.cho-lab.org The applicant must have a Ph.D. degree and a solid background in biomolecular NMR for structure determination and/or protein dynamics.

Interested applicants should apply via the link below and include a cover letter detailing research experience, CV, and contact information of three references to Jae-Hyun Cho (jaehyuncho "at" tamu.edu) or use the following link
