A position for a NIH-funded postdoctoral fellow is available immediately in the Syun-Ru Yeh Laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York. The postdoctoral fellow will take a lead in (1) elucidating structure and function relationships of two immunotherapeutic drug targets, human indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase and tryptophan dioxygenase, and (2) developing inhibitors targeting the enzymes as therapeutic strategies for cancer treatment. The postdoctoral fellow will join an exciting program with a focus on enzymology, spectroscopy-guided crystallography and inhibitor development.
The successful applicant must have demonstrated experience in chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics or closely related field. Expertise in x-ray crystallography, spectroscopy and/or computational modeling is a plus. Applicants should provide a CV and a cover letter justifying their suitability and interest in the position. Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of reference sent to Dr. Syun-Ru Yeh ([email protected]).
