An ORISE postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Division of Biotechnology Products Research and Review III, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research of the Food and Drug Administration. The Fellow will join a multi-disciplinary research program to understand the biochemistry of protein oxidation. The project will focus on how excessive oxidative stress can modify proteins and impact drug safety or efficacy. The goals are to (1) investigate structure-function relationships between protein oxidation and drug quality, safety and efficacy and (2) identify mechanisms of chemoprotection to develop protein biomarkers of chemotherapeutic outcomes.
A Ph.D. and experience in protein biochemistry is required. An excellent record of oral and written English skills is also required. Direct experience with protein purification, mass spectrometry, oxidative stress measurement, or next generation sequencing is preferred, but not required. The position is a non-FTE through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE). The salary will be commensurate with experience.
The laboratory is located on the main campus of the Food and Drug Administration at White Oak, Silver Spring, MD campus.
