Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Bioinformatics & Computational Biology, Kaminker Lab, Genentech Research

Genentech

South San Francisco , CA 94080

We are seeking an independent and motivated researcher for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Department to apply cutting edge single cell computational approaches to understand the role of sensory neurons in airway function. The successful candidate will join a highly collaborative research team that includes members of Bioinformatics, Neuroscience, and Immunology and will work exceptionally closely with bench colleagues in these groups. Our work is focused on dissecting the transcriptional and molecular pathways in sensory neuron populations that are required for normal lung function, and which might be dysfunctional in airway diseases.

VIEW JOBS 4/20/2018 12:00:00 AM 2018-07-19T00:00 The Harris Lab is seeking a motivated postdoctoral researcher to investigate structure and function of macromolecular complexes involved in deubiquitination pathways. You are a creative problem-solver, energized and enthusiastic to pursue challenging, impactful scientific questions. We anticipate combining protein crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy (CryoEM), and bioinformatics to examine diverse size scales of these multi-protein complexes and to determine themes and variations in the enzymatic regulation and specificity of deubiquitinases and their partner proteins. With regular access to state-of-the-art synchrotron facilities and a newly established cryo-EM laboratory, Genentech's Structural Biology department provides a well-resourced, strongly collaborative environment to pursue cutting-edge publication-oriented research in the context of world-class applied science and therapeutic development. Further bolstered by the collegial postdoctoral fellows program at Genentech, this creates an exciting environment for the engaged and productive scientist.
