Diverse perspectives, talents, and identities are vital to accomplishing our mission and living our core values . Who we are Texas A & M University’s Department of Chemistry, is a cadre of faculty, staff, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, academic advisors, scientific and technical staff, who have a d purpose of translating our passion for chemistry to young scholars at all levels in many scientific fields. The Business Office strives to support the goals of the faculty, staff and students in teaching, research and outreach programs, and adheres to the professional standards and integrity in processing university Business. To learn more, please visit our website: What we want A postdoctoral position is available with an immediate starting date to lead research in NMR based drug discovery. The project includes the development of methods for the screening of protein-ligand interactions in live cells. We areing NMR spectroscopy in combination with state-of-the art hyperpolarization methods. The technique of dissolution dynamic nuclear polarization is used to strongly enhance NMR signals, and enable the characterization of molecular dynamics and interactions. We seek a talented researcher with an appropriate PhD, preferably in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysics, or a related field. In-depth research experience either in biochemical methods including the culturing and characterization of mammalian cells, or in advanced NMR methodology, is a plus. We are looking for a colleague who is highly motivated to their expertise in an interdisciplinary team. The position will assist the postdoctoral researcher to develop new skills in the application of modern techniques in magnetic resonance in the life sciences. T he selected candidate will subscribe to and support our commitment to Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accountability (IDEA) as stated above . If this job description sounds interesting to you, we invite you to to be considered for this opportunity. What you need to know Cover Letter/Resume/References: A cover letter, resume, and contact information for three professional references (to include at least one previous supervisor) are strongly recommended.
