Postdoctoral Position in Medicinal Chemistry, University of Minnesota

The Harki lab (http://www.medicinal-chemistry.org/harki) in the Department of Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Minnesota has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate. The project involves the design, synthesis, and biochemical testing of small molecule inhibitors of APOBEC3 DNA cytosine deaminases. The ideal candidate will have strong training in synthetic organic chemistry and experience in protein-based spectroscopic assays. Highly motivated applicants with a desire to work across the chemistry-biology interface are encouraged to apply. To apply, email Professor Harki, daharki@umn.edu, the following application materials: (I) A cover letter expressing interest in the position and the applicant's qualifications, (II) a current CV, and (III) names of 3 people that can provide letters of recommendation upon request. Only complete applications will be considered.

Postdoctoral Position at Baylor University

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Baylor University to join the research team of Dr. Kevin G. Pinney. Candidates for this position should have a strong, demonstrated command of synthetic organic chemistry, be innovative and imaginative, work well both independently and as part of a collaborative team, and possess excellent communication and leadership skills. Well-established research projects in the Pinney Laboratory at Baylor University focus on understanding the salient features of small molecule molecular recognition of selected bioreceptors including proteins and enzymes. Specific research projects include: vascular disrupting agents (VDAs) to selectively starve tumors of oxygen and nutrients, inhibitors of tubulin assembly as antimitotic agents, inhibitors of cathepsin L to limit or arrest cancer metastasis, the synthesis of bioreductively activatable prodrug conjugates (BAPCs) designed to target tumor hypoxia as a means of imparting selectivity in anticancer drug delivery, antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) designed to selectively deliver extremely potent small-molecule anti-cancer agents, and inhibitors of cruzain as potential treatment agents for Chagas’ disease. Nearly all of these projects are collaborative in nature between the Pinney Group (synthetic and medicinal chemistry) and Trawick Group (biochemistry and cell biology) both at Baylor University. Applicants should apply online and attach a cover letter, CV, and brief research description using the link: https://jobs.baylor.edu/applicants/jsp/shared/position/JobDetails_css.jsp?postingId=146083 This one-year position is subject to extension upon mutual agreement and the availability of necessary research funds.
