Postdoctoral Research Opportunities

 

Protein-Based Therapy for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota to advance development of an exciting new protein-based therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (K.J. Sonnemann et al., 2009 PLoS Med). Applicants should have a Ph.D. or M.D. with a strong background in one of the following: protein biochemistry, molecular biology, animal models of disease, in vivo imaging, or muscle physiology.


Structure/Function of Dystrophin

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota to investigate the structure and function of dystrophin using biochemical and/or biophysical methodologies. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, or Biophysics with a strong background in protein biochemistry.


Role of Cytoplasmic Actin Isoforms in Cell Polarity and Disease

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics at the University of Minnesota to investigate the structure and function of dystrophin using biochemical and/or biophysical methodologies. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry, or Biophysics with a strong background in protein biochemistry.
