Phoenix Nest Inc. and The Division of Medical Genetics at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed) are recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow to develop therapeutic proteins for lysosomal diseases. The candidate must have a Ph.D. in life sciences, preferably biological chemistry, or an M.D. He or she must be able to work independently in construct design, protein production, protein purification, and enzyme characterization. The project requires a highly motivated, highly collaborative individual with superb technical and communication skills. The fellow will have a great deal of creative input and opportunities to develop his or her own project, learn new techniques, participate in grant writing, attend seminars and other academic activities, and present at national and international conferences. In addition the fellow will have the opportunity to interact with members of the rare disease community and will have the potential to have a significant impact on a devastating rare disease. This position is an excellent stepping stone to a career in academia, government research laboratory or industry.
The fellow will be employed by Phoenix Nest Inc. and appointed through the Medical Genetics Division under Dr. Patricia Dickson, working with her and her staff at LA BioMed on the Harbor-UCLA campus. Phoenix Nest Inc. is a company aiming to cure mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) diseases and in particular is focused on Sanfilippo Syndrome. We have built up through collaborations with leading academics and experienced researchers a formidable team focused on this vision. All of our resources are spent on research and development with minimal overhead as we leverage collaborative tools to ensure we reach our goal.
Salary will follow NIH scale and will be commensurate with experience following the doctoral degree. The initial appointment will be for one year, starting in summer 2014, with renewal for up to three more years contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance.
Harbor-UCLA Medical Center is a public hospital affiliated with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, LA BioMed and the UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute. We are located in the South Bay of Los Angeles with ready access to local beaches.
Interested candidates should forward a cover letter, C.V., and the names/addresses of 3 references to Dr. Sean Ekins at ekinssean [at] yahoo [dot] com and Dr. Patricia Dickson at pdickson [at] ucla [dot] edu.Posted by: pdicksonCreated on April 14, 2014 - 3:07pmexpires on July 13, 2014 - 3:07pm (11 weeks 3 days)
