Open Positions

The Fitzkee lab is currently looking for graduate students and postdocs interested in NMR spectroscopy, protein structure, and computer modeling. Active projects include the understanding of phase-separation in disordered elastin-like polypeptides, understanding the biophysics of protein-nanoparticle interactions, and studying the behavior of bacterial surface proteins involved in biofilm formation. Graduate student applicants should be passionate about science and have a strong mathematical background. Postdoctoral fellows should have a strong work ethic and a track record of publication from their graduate work and prior postdocs (if applicable). Programming experience not required, but it is a huge plus for both types of positions. Contact Nick Fitzkee (contact info) for more details.

Biochemistry Boot Camp Registration Open!

Once again, we're hosting a Boot Camp in 2019 for undergraduate and new graduate student researchers. Now supported by the National Science Foundation, the program will support the travel and lodging expenses for students from throughout the region. This year's dates are June 10-12. As previously, Boot Camp will cover computational tools needed to dive into experimental biophysics research. For the more information, to register, or to obtain a travel grant application, please visit the Boot Camp Web Page!
