An Associate Research Scientist position is available in the laboratory of Arthur Laganowsky in the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M University. We are interested in how proteins and small molecules, such as lipids, influence the structure and function of membrane proteins, ranging from ion channels to receptors. We seek to hire a candidate that will work at the unique interface between X-ray crystallography and native ion mobility mass spectrometry (IM-MS) including the use of pioneering home-built instrumentation. The scientist will learn cutting-edge IM-MS approaches developed in our laboratory to study the structure and function of membrane proteins. Information derived from IM-MS studies will guide co-crystallization experiments to determine the atomic structures of membrane protein lipid complexes.
Requires: Doctoral degree in biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology or related science with a minimum of three years of relevant professional experience.
Prefers: Experience in expression and purification of proteins, X-ray crystallography, or other structural techniques. Some experience in mass spectrometry, or ion mobility mass spectrometry is preferred but not required.
Salary: Starting salaries may be negotiable based on qualifications and experience.
Employment is contingent upon background check with the Texas Department of Public Safety.
