Postdoc Position: Saier Lab @ UCSD

There is an opening for a postdoc position in experimental biology in the lab of Dr. Milton Saier at UCSD. We are looking for a highly motivated individual that will conduct experiments in E. coli to study protein-protein interactions and their catalytic consequences.

Our lab is focused on the study of membrane proteins, especially transport proteins, and have already identified the interactions of interest; we now need to demonstrate  biochemical and/or
physiological activities.

The position is available immediately for either a short- or long-term appointment.


1. PhD in biology or related areas.

2. Strong background in protein chemistry. Should have mastery of various protein isolation and purification techniques (e.g. PAGE and Western blotting).

3. Be familiar with various biochemical essays for protein activities.

4. If not a US Citizen or permanent resident, must already have authorization to work in the US.

Interested candidates should send their CV to Dr. Saier at ( and include 2 recommendation letters.
