Student and Postdoc Job Openings

The Department of Biophysics' labs periodically look to hire undergraduate students, graduate students, or postdoctoral fellows. The Department provides training and access to state-of-the-art instrumentation in individual labs and through experts in the Core facilities. Department faculty are committed to all aspects of mentoring, from science training to providing teaching and outreach activities to career development.

Postdoc in the Elizabeth Goldsmith Lab

We seek a passionate and self-motivated, writing-friendly researcher with background in biochemistry and structural biology to study WNK kinases with us. The Goldsmith Lab discovered that WNK kinases that are genetically linked to hypertension function as intracellular pressure sensors. We aim to determine molecular mechanism of pressure sensing process with X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM and other biochemical and biophysical techniques. We collaborate with the chemist -- Uttam Tambar at UTSW -- in search for small molecules that would modulate WNK kinases activity. If you are interested please send a one-page biographical sketch to Elizabeth.Goldsmith@UTSouthwestern.edu.
