The Shabek lab is looking for a postdoctoral fellow with a strong background in structural biology to join immediately to our research group at the University of California, Davis (

We use structure- function approaches to study unique signaling pathways and their regulation by the Ubiquitin Proteasome System. We have several new funded projects by NSF and DOE.

• Must be a recent Ph.D. in Biochemistry and/or Plant Biology and/or Structural Biology • Experience in molecular biology, protein purification techniques (experience with baculovirus expression is preferred but not required), and protein-protein/molecule interactions.
• Experience in structural biology (X-ray crystallography and/or Cryo-EM) is preferred.
• Strong communications skills and ability to train junior scientists

Compensation and benefits for postdocs in UC Davis are the highest in the country.

Davis is a beautiful Californian town located near Sacramento, and close to San Fransisco, and several National Parks.

The Shabek lab has all the advance tools and equipment to conduct structural biology experiments. We have access to ALS bemalines in Berkeley and SSRL in Stanford, as well as CryoEM facilities (BioEM in Davis or Brookhaven National labs).
