Postdoc position in NMR studies of biomolecular condensates

The Zhou lab at University of Illinois Chicago has an NIH-funded postdoc position for studying biomolecular condensates by NMR and other biophysical techniques.  We aim to characterize intermolecular interactions inside condensates by solution and/or solid-state NMR, to complement ongoing studies using optical tweezers, fluorescence microscopy, and molecular dynamics simulations.  Candidates with a strong background in NMR and good communication skills are sought. Experience in the other areas noted above is a plus.

Here are some of the recent publications from our lab.
