We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to expand our current work on phosphorylation-mediated amyloids, described in the following publication.
Elias, R. D., Ma, W., Ghirlando, R., Schwieters, C. D., Reddy, V. S., and Deshmukh, L. (2020) Proline-rich Domain of Human ALIX Contains Multiple TSG101-UEV Interaction Sites and Forms Phosphorylation-mediated Reversible Amyloids. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2020/09/10/2010635117
Eligibility. Interested candidates must have received (or be expecting) a Ph.D. within the past two years in either biochemistry, biophysics, molecular or structural biology. A strong background in solution NMR, computational methods, protein expression and purification, lipid chemistry, and structural biology is highly desirable.
Interested individuals should contact Prof. Deshmukh via email at [ ldeshmukh "at ucsd.edu ]
Salary. Commensurate with qualification and based on UC San Diego Postdoc salary scale.
San Diego is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer
with a strong institutional commitment to excellence through diversity. All
qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard
to gender, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin,
disability, age, or protected veteran status.
The successful candidate will be responsible for conducting solid-state NMR investigations of heterogeneous catalysts, by conventional as well as dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) enhanced solid-state NMR spectroscopy. A significant portion of the work will involve solid-state NMR methods development for instance through the development of novel data analysis tools, pulse sequence development, and the advancement and application of emerging technologies including ultra-fast (100 kHz+) magic-angle-spinning, dynamic nuclear polarization, and ultrahigh magnetic fields. The main focus of the work will be geared towards gaining a dynamic understanding of the structures of heterogeneous catalyst surfaces through multidimensional NMR spectroscopy.
Ames Laboratory is equipped with 9.4 and 14.1 T solid-state NMR spectrometers with MAS probes for rotor diameters ranging from 5 to 0.7-mm. Aside from these instruments, the lab is also equipped with a 9.4 T Bruker MAS-DNP NMR spectrometer with both 3.2 and 1.3-mm MAS-DNP probes. The successful candidate will have access to synthesis facilities including a Schlenk line and a glovebox and will also be able to collaborate with other PIs in the Division of Chemical and Biological Sciences and the Division of Materials Sciences and Engineering for synthetic and additional characterization needs. High-performance computing facilities will also be made available.
The successful candidate must be able to communicate effectively with a variety of audiences and collaborate with a team.
Ph.D. must be completed prior to start date.
Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, materials science, or a related discipline.
Demonstrated experience in theoretical and experimental aspects of modern solid-state NMR and/or DNP, including method development, and data analysis.
Demonstrated experience in quantum chemical and/or molecular dynamics simulation.
Demonstrated experience in inorganic and/or air sensitive synthesis.
