Postdoctoral Research Associate in Peptide Therapeutics

UNC - Chapel Hill, Marcey Waters and David Williams Labs

A postdoctoral position is available to work jointly in the laboratories of Marcey Waters (UNC Department of Chemistry) and David Williams (UNC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine) as part of the Cancer Epigenetics Training Program (CETP). The research focus will be to develop a synthetic peptide inhibitor or peptidomimetic of a chromatin remodeling complex as a novel strategy for treating cancer as well as β-hemoglobinopathies. The two labs use a combination of peptide synthesis, NMR spectroscopy, FRET, BRET, ITC, and other biophysical techniques to develop peptide inhibitors of protein-DNA and protein-protein complexes.

Applicants should have completed a recent Ph.D. in the chemical or biological sciences, including chemistry, chemical biology, biochemistry, molecular/cell biology, or related areas. A strong background in peptide synthesis, chemical modification, and purification is required.  Experience with biochemistry and tissue culture as well as an interest in translational research and applying for fellowship funding are highly desirable.

Interested applicants should apply online http://unc.peopleadmin.com/postings/170269. The online application will require, i) a cover letter briefly describing your previous experience and how your interests might fit into the current focus areas of the lab, ii) a curriculum vitae, and iii) contact information of three references. Applicants selected for an interview will be asked to apply for the Cancer Epigenetics Training Program (https://unclineberger.org/cancer-epigenetics-training-program/) which provides excellent post-doctoral training in the field of epigenetic gene regulation and cancer in a stimulating research environment at UNC-Chapel Hill.

Application deadline:  open until January 1, 2020

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity, affirmative action employer and welcomes all to apply regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. We also encourage protected veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply.
