We are currently seeking a highly-qualified and motivated postdoctoral fellow with an interest in Enzymology, Structural Biology, and Chemical Biology. The lab focuses on using a variety of biochemical methods to solve problems at the interface of chemistry, biochemistry, and biology. Specific project areas include the design, synthesis, and evaluation of inhibitors targeting Protein Arginine Deiminase 4, a histone modifying enzyme that is dysregulated in Rheumatoid Arthritis and Cancer, as well as the identification of citrullinated biomarkers of disease. Our lab is furnished with new, state-of-the-art equipment and is housed within the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, at The University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA.
Requirements: PhD in a relevant discipline and related scientific experience.
To be considered, please send CV, brief description of research interests and contact information of references to Prof. Paul R. Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
