POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE , Biology-Sauer and Davis Labs , to probe the structure and function of macromolecular machines such as energy dependent proteases and ribosomes. Representative work from the Sauer and Davis labs includes: CryoDRGN: reconstruction of heterogeneous cryo-EM structures using neural networks ; Modular Assembly of the Bacterial Large Ribosomal Subunit ; and Structural basis of ClpXP recognition and unfolding of ssrA-tagged substrates . Will work to determine complex structures using single-particle cryoEM and to integrate these structures with decades of biochemical studies to understand how these machines assemble and function.
This jointly advised position is fully funded and affords an opportunity to employ a combination of biochemical and computational approaches and to be simultaneously mentored by both an established and new investigator. Additionally, there will be an opportunity to develop a completely independent project on a ~15-20% time basis.
