A Postdoctoral Fellow position is immediately available for a highly motivated individual in Dr. Xin Liu’s group at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Research in the Liu Lab is focused on structure and function of large macromolecular assemblies involved in formation of heritable high-order chromatin structure. To achieve the research goal, the Liu lab leverages a combination of advanced tools, including biochemical reconstitution (e.g. protein-protein, protein-nucleosome, or protein-non-coding RNA complexes), X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, proteomics, and genomics by next-generation sequencing. The Liu lab also routinely uses a variety of cancer cells and pluripotent stem cells to perform structure-based functional studies.

Applicants with demonstrated expertise in structural biology and in particular cryo-EM, protein and nucleic acid biochemistry, or chromatin biology are encouraged to apply.
Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with first author publications and should submit a CV and contact information of 2-3 references to the PI by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
