We are looking for talented and driven individuals - postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, undergraduate students, and high school students to join our research team.
Postdoctoral and Staff Positions
POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN BIOPHYSICS & STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY OF DNA REPAIR & RECOMBINATION and ELECTRON TRANSFER ENZYMES Postdoctoral positions are currently available. We are looking for exceptionally driven and motivated researchers who will strive to carry out projects that decipher the molecular underpinnings of enzyme complexes. The ideal researcher for the positions will have a strong background in in vitro biochemistry using recombinantly purified protein complexes. Experience in either single-molecule biophysics, structural biology (especially cryo-EM microscopy), enzyme kinetics (stopped flow fluorescence), molecular biology and/or biochemistry of protein-nucleic acid interactions would be ideal. For the DOE-funded position, a strong background in working with proteins in a glove box is required along with experience using EPR and other spectroscopic or bioinorganic tools. Saint Louis University School of Medicine provides ample opportunities for cutting edge, interdisciplinary and collaborative research. In addition, multiple-collaborative opportunities exist with researchers at the neighboring Washington University in St. Louis. Saint Louis City is also a delightful and affordable town to live in and raise a family with free admissions to parks, zoos, and museums. Saint Louis is also one of the fastest growing biotech and biopharmaceutical cities in the USA and filled with career opportunities and thus is an excellent environment for postdoctoral studies (https://www.biospace.com/article/st-louis-one-of-the-fastest-growing-life-sciences-markets/).
Candidates interested in the postdoctoral or scientist positions should directly contact Dr. Antony (email@example.com) with a copy of their CV/resume and a cover letter stating why our group would be a good fit.
Research Technicians We are looking for one research technician with extensive experience working with recombinant proteins. The ideal candidate will have purified proteins using E. coli overexpression systems. The ability to express proteins using insect cell systems will be an added bonus. Experience working with standard molecular biology methods (cloning) and biochemical tools (SDS-PAGE gels) is also required. If interested, please contact Dr. Antony.
Graduate Students The Antony group has always served as an exceptional training group for graduate students. Our two most recent graduate students have secured postdoctoral fellowships at MIT and New England Biolabs. Interested students, who have been accepted into the graduate program at SLU can contact Dr. Antony to schedule their rotations. Future graduate students, interested in the graduate program at SLU can find more information here: https://biochem.slu.edu/graduate/
Undergraduate Students Please contact Dr. Antony for research opportunities. There are three to four undergraduate students working in the group at any given instance. No former research training is required, but an unabated enthusiasm for science and learning bench work is expected. Please make sure that you have ample time during the semester to perform research and the ability to work full time in the summers will be a key determinant for handling independent projects.
High School Summer Students Please contact Dr. Antony for research opportunities. No formal training is required.
