Employment Opportunities

Postdoctoral

Dr. Limei Zhang Lab

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is looking for a highly motivated scientist with a PhD degree in biochemistry, structural biology or a related field to join Prof. Limei Zhang’s research team at the Department of Biochemistry and the Redox Biology Center, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, Nebraska USA (https://biochem.unl.edu). The research in the Zhang Laboratory focuses on structure-mechanism relationships of metalloproteins involved in redox homeostasis in bacterial pathogens. Multi-disciplinary approaches are used in the studies, including synchrotron-radiation-based X-ray diffraction, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, molecular biology and computational modeling.  Experience in protein biochemistry, a demonstrated track record in conducting high quality research and a passion for learning new techniques are required. Experience in structural biology (X-ray crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance) and molecular biology are highly desirable. The position offers competitive salary and benefits package.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is located in a vibrant and safe city offering outstanding and affordable quality of life, and numerous multi-cultural and entertainment benefits. The Department of Biochemistry and the Redox Biology Center at the university offers supportive and collaborative international environment as well as access to cutting edge proteomics, metabolomics, crystallography, and NMR facilities.

For more information about our research and the position, please contact Prof. Limei Zhang (Email: limei.zhang@unl.edu).
