Employment--updated 8/16/12

Post-doctoral Scientist

The Page Laboratory at Brown University has a new opening for a highly motivated post-doc in the field of structural biology using X-ray crystallography, SAXS and NMR spectroscopy to understand the molecular basis of protein function. Applicants with a strong background in biochemical techniques and structure determination are encouraged to apply. Prior experience with X-ray crystallography, molecular biology and protein expression and purification is preferred.

The Page laboratory is housed in a new 105,000 sq. ft. research laboratory in Providence, RI. The laboratories are open-lab-space facilities and allow close interaction with the adjunct structural biology and molecular biology groups at Brown University (www.brown.edu/Research/Ship_Street/). At Brown University we have exceptional facilities, including a FRE+ Superbright microfocus generator coupled with the Varimax-HF Arc)Sec confocal optics, with a Saturn 944HG CCD detector and an ACTOR crystal mounting robot on one port for crystal diffraction and a BioSAXS-100 SD-Kratky Camera System on the second port for solution scattering. Finally, the Page laboratory is equipped with modern protein production and purification instrumentation.

Providence, RI, is located on the coast between Boston (45 min.) and New York City (3 hours). Providence is still a rather affordable city with outstanding cultural, medical and educational institutions. Starting date, salary and project details are negotiable.

Please send Cover Letter, CV and three letters of reference to Rebecca Page, Brown University, Box G-E4, Providence, RI 02912. Alternatively, email the documents to Rebecca_Page@brown.edu with "Post-Doctoral Position" in the subject line.

Graduate Students

The Page laboratory has 1-2 openings for highly motivated graduate students. Backgrounds in chemistry and/or biology preferred but not required.
