Faculty Position in Structural Biology

Purdue University

The Department of Biological Sciences and the Markey Center for Structural
Biology at Purdue University invite applications for a tenure-track faculty
position in Structural Biology. We expect to fill this academic-year
appointment at the Assistant Professor level, but appointment at the
Associate level will also be considered.  Applicants must have a Ph.D. or
equivalent in biology, chemistry, physics or related field and at least 2
years of postdoctoral experience in X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, NMR or
other relevant field. The successful applicant will be required to
establish a strong and independent research program in structural biology
and to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels.  Applicants with
research interests in cancer biology, drug discovery, energy & signal
transduction, infectious disease, large macromolecular complexes,
membrane-based transport, molecular pathogenesis, neurobiology, viruses or
viral-host interactions are encouraged to apply.

The Markey Center for Structural Biology at Purdue is recognized worldwide
for its leadership in structural biology of viruses, membrane proteins,
receptors, signaling proteins and enzymes in addition to methods
development in crystallography, NMR and electron microscopy.  The
Department has over 50 faculty members conducting research in a wide range
of fields including those areas listed above, bioinformatics, computational
chemistry and biology, ecology, evolutionary biology and vision research.
The successful candidate will have opportunities to interact with
colleagues in many departments and colleges including Chemistry, Medicinal
Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Computer Science and Physics, and to
join centers such as the Center for Cancer Research and the new Center for
Drug Discovery.  The successful candidate will also have laboratory space
in the newly constructed Hockmeyer Hall of Structural Biology and will have
access to state-of-the-art shared resources across Purdue including a Titan
Krios cryo-TEM, Bruker Avance-III 800 MHz NMR, Rigaku X-ray generators and
detectors, and other advanced biophysical instrumentation available at the
Bindley Bioscience Center and the Birck Nanotechnology Center.

Applications must be submitted electronically to *Search at bio.purdue.edu* as
a PDF file that includes a detailed curriculum vitae, names and addresses
of three referees, a 2 - 3 page summary of research interests, and a
one-page statement on a vision for teaching.  Inquiries should be directed
to *Structural Biology Search Committee, Department of Biological Sciences,
Purdue University, 915 W. State St., West Lafayette, IN 47907-2054*.  Review
of applications will begin *November 1, 2013 *and continue until the
position is filled. Further information about the Department is available
