Welcome!

Welcome to the Fitzkee lab! Check out our news feed for the latest updates! Some highlights are below:

Open Positions

The Fitzkee lab is currently looking for graduate students 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. Programming experience is a huge plus. Contact Nick Fitzkee (contact info) for more details.

Biochemistry Boot Camp

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. Dates haven't been set yet, but contact Nick Fitzkee if you are interested. As previously, Boot Camp will cover computational tools needed to dive into experimental biophysics research.
