A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology, IUPUI starting spring 2021. The project involves studying the structure-function relation in periplasmic nitrate reductase, a mononuclear molybdenum enzyme. These enzymes take part in the global cycling of C, S, N, and As, and impact human health in a myriad of ways. Our approach includes careful kinetic analysis coupled with biophysical experimentation, and with this approach, we hope to develop an in-depth understanding of these critical enzymes' reactivity.
This NIH/NSF funded position is for one year with the option to extend beyond the initial year. The department is well equipped with modern instrumentation such as mass spectrometry facility, cell culture and protein purification facilities. Experience in enzyme kinetics and molecular biology is desirable. As a home of major pharmaceutical companies, upcoming biotech industries, and largest medical school in the country, Indianapolis offers a vibrant scientific community. The city of Indianapolis is thriving city with a rich cultural environment, plenty of options for an active outdoor lifestyle. Interested candidate should contact Prof. Partha Basu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
