Postdoctoral Fellowship in Translation Kinetics
and the Evolution of Codon Usage
The Drummond Lab is seeking outstanding postdoctoral candidates to pursue research on the biophysical basis of natural selection on protein translation and codon usage, starting immediately. Our goal is to develop kinetic models of translation, with the intent of generating testable predictions to motivate in vivo and in vitro experiments — theoretical and computational studies are our initial focus.
This postdoctoral fellowship is generously funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences.
Candidates must have completed a PhD in chemistry, physics, quantitative biology or closely related fields, and be available to start work immediately. Ideal candidates are exceptional theorists who are motivated to test their theories experimentally. We offer competitive salary and benefits, state-of-the art facilities, and the excitement of a new, small, but successful group. To apply, send a letter of intent, CV and contact information for three references to Allan Drummond by email or at Harvard University, 52 Oxford St, 431 Northwest Labs, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA.
