We invite applications for a post-doctoral position, funded by the NIH and Helmsley Charitable Trust, focusing on cryo-EM studies of how insulin analogs bind to the insulin receptor. Analogs include ultra-stable and glucose-responsive insulin variants of clinical interest.

The post-doctoral fellow will be part of a multidisciplinary team including synthetic peptide chemists and cell biologists engaged in insulin research with translational application to the improved treatment of diabetes mellitus. A PhD in structural biology or computation protein chemistry is required. Prior experience with cryo-EM is preferred but not required. IUSM provides a diverse international community and welcomes applications from scientists of diverse backgrounds, cultures, nationalities and genders. Non-US Citizens will require an appropriate Visa for employment in the United States.
