One postdoctoral position is currently open for a highly motivated candidate at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a renowned institute for biomedical research situated in Memphis, Tennessee, USA. The successful applicant will enjoy a unique opportunity to leverage an array of structural, biochemical, and genetic technologies, including Cryo-electron microscopy and cutting-edge mass spectrometry-based proteomics. These tools will be applied to investigate the pathogenesis of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases in human iPSC-derived organoids, mouse models, and clinical tissues. Our overarching goal is to probe complex molecular networks through structural, genetic, and omics-based systems biology approaches, offering fresh insights into disease progression and therapeutic strategies (https://www.stjude.org/peng).
Our postdoctoral fellows benefit from extensive collaboration and mentorship opportunities with other members, fostering career development in the realms of cutting-edge technology development and biomedical research. Our track record of publications is accessible on Google Scholar (230+ papers with over 35,000 citations). St. Jude has impressive resources, including four Cryo-EM microscopes, nine modern mass spectrometers, and ample support for large-scale gene editing and super-resolution imaging. St. Jude stands as a top-tier hospital and a world-class basic research institute, with approximately 300 faculty members. Postdoctoral fellows at St. Jude receive competitive compensation ($70,000 to $84,500 annually) in an affordable city, as well as a professional development allowance. Additional benefits include a sign-on bonus, comprehensive health coverage, and a retirement program (https://www.stjude.org/education-training/advanced-training/postdoctoral-fellows/funding-benefits-for-postdocs.html).
Qualified candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree in chemistry, biology, neuroscience, computer science, or a related field, or an M.D. degree. Prior experience in mass spectrometry is not a prerequisite. To apply, please submit your CV, along with three references and a concise statement outlining your past work and future aspirations, to Dr. Junmin Peng (firstname.lastname@example.org). Dr. Peng is a Member (Full Professor) in the Departments of Structural Biology and Developmental Neurobiology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
