Postdoctoral Position in Biochemistry: Detroit, MI, United States The Ahn Laboratory ( at the Department of Chemistry at Wayne State University is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with a strong research background in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, or Chemical Biology. The candidate will carry out a NIH-funded project: biochemical methods to investigate protein oxidation in a model of cardiac and skeletal muscle. Candidates will focus on 1) analyzing protein cysteine oxidation in cellular and animal models by biochemical and mass-spectrometric methods, 2) evaluating functional effects of protein cysteine oxidation associated with an ischemic-reperfusion injury by biochemical and cellular methods. All candidates require strong background in biochemistry (WB, IF, IP, and others) and molecular (PCR, cloning) and cellular (cell culture, transfection, and others) biology. The candidate who has prior knowledge and research experience in cardiac biology, including animal surgery and primary cardiomyocytes isolation, will be an advantage. About our laboratory: The Ahn laboratory studies protein oxidative modification and redox-regulation relevant to cardiac or cancer biology using a wide variety of biochemical and cellular methods. This includes biochemical approaches to identification of protein oxidation in cellular and animal models, biochemical and functional analysis of oxidized proteins, development and evaluation of therapeutics toward oxidative stress-related diseases. A Ph.D. in Biochemistry or any related area of science is required. We seek a passionate individual with good communication and interpersonal skills, and an ability to work independently. The position is available immediately and will begin on date mutually agreed. Candidates should email a cover letter, CV, a brief research summary, and email address of references to Young-Hoon Ahn, Ph.D. [link to] Department of Chemistry, Wayne State University, Detroit, United States.
