Multiple positions, Castaneda Lab, Syracuse University

Syracuse University

We are a small lab led by newly awarded NSF CAREER and NIH R01 grants with recent condensate projects featured in Molecular Cell and Structure. We are looking for junior scientists/postdocs/research scientists ready to push these projects to the next level!

Our lab studies the role of liquid-liquid phase separation in protein quality control mechanisms both on a molecular and cellular level. We are especially interested in the structure and function of ubiquitin-binding shuttle proteins, as both folded domains and intrinsically-disordered regions modulate phase transitions of these proteins.

We are looking for motivated junior and experienced scientists with interests in biochemistry, biophysics, or cell biology.

Postdocs / Research Scientists
These positions are NIH-supported! We are currently looking for biophysicists and cell biologists. Please send an email with a statement of interest, CV, and three job reference contacts to Carlos CastaƱeda. Those with prior experience in structural biology, NMR spectroscopy, small angle scattering, microscopy, or in mammalian cell culture are encouraged to apply.
Graduate Students
Our lab is part of the Departments of Biology and Chemistry at Syracuse University, therefore we encourage students to apply into graduate programs for either department. Both PhD programs offer guaranteed funding for approximately 5 years. The Biology program offers rotations during the trainee’s first year and so we encourage students to contact the PI early if interested! Students interested in the Chemistry program often join their target lab of interest by December of their first year in the program.
