A postdoctoral position available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Emilia Galperin in the Department of Molecular biochemistry, University of Kentucky. The goal of Dr. Galperin’s lab is to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms causing congenital disease and signal transmission in cancer progression. We utilize a multidisciplinary approach that employed methodologies of cell biology, biochemistry, and genetics and rely heavily on biochemistry. The PI has a strong record of publications and funding from the NIH and American Cancer Society in support of this project.

This position focuses on biophysical/biochemical analysis of signaling complexes. The successful candidate will carry out an independent project on the mechanisms of cellular signaling in organismal development and congenital disease. Preference will be given to an applicant with a strong background in molecular biology, protein purification, and protein crystallization; experience in other biophysical methods is a plus, but not required. Candidate that has a strong background in cell biology/biochemistry, molecular biology, protein analysis; experience with phosphorylation, ubiquitination will be considered as well. The successful applicant will be a highly motivated individual with good communication skills; will have a proven publication record, and the ability to work independently. The applicant must currently have a Ph.D. in Biochemistry or a related field. The appointment will be for 1 year with renewal up to 5 years.

Please, email a single PDF containing a CV, a 1-2 page summary of past research accomplishments and contact information for three references to Dr. Galperin with the subject heading "postdoc".

  • The department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at the University of Kentucky currently has 28 faculty members who are actively working on molecular structure and drug design, signal transduction, cancer biology, lipids and membranes, neurobiology, and enzymology of DNA and RNA. The department resides in a new biomedical research building with an open laboratory style to facilitate extensive scientific communications. University of Kentucky is a designated Research I University and is located at Lexington. Information about living at Lexington can be found at
