A postdoctoral fellowship in protein acylation and metabolic regulation

Website dgmashek University of Minnesota

A NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship is available in the Mashek Laboratory at the University of Minnesota. The successful candidate will lead an ongoing effort to characterize novel regulators of the sirtuin family of proteins, and their impact on protein acylation and cell function. This works stems from our recent discovery of the first known endogenous metabolite activators of SIRT1 (Najt et al. Mol. Cell 2020). The recruited postdoc will use protein biochemistry, enzymology and mass spectrometry tools and should have training or expertise in these areas. The successful candidate will have a strong track record of research productivity and possess a strong passion for science. The Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biophysics is ranks 6th nationally in NIH funding, and provides state-of-the-art labs and facilities and an outstanding learning environment. Moreover, the University of Minnesota is one of the top public universities and is located in the Twin Cities, which are consistently rated as one of the top places to live in the US. Interested candidates should email a cover letter, CV, and names and emails of three references to Dr. Douglas Mashek (dmashek@umn.edu).
