Assistant Professor in Biochemistry, Universtiy of Richmond, Virginia

We are searching for an Assistant Professor in Biochemistry.  We are actively seeking candidates who will combine excellence in teaching with the ability to maintain a vigorous research program that can engage undergraduate students.  Our department is highly student focused with small classes (typically under 30 students) and a strong tradition of undergraduate research.

If you know of candidates who are interested in a career at predominantly undergraduate institutions, our position is a great one.  We have an unusually active and productive undergraduate research program.  We offer solid start up packages, have a standard 3-2 teaching load, and have substantial space dedicated to student/faculty research.  During the summers we have 65-70 chemistry students doing research with over 100 doing research during the academic year.  We also have an unusually large faculty with 18 tenure track faculty members, so we don’t have the problem with intellectual isolation that plagues some smaller departments.

The link to our position description and application process is here:

 Conveying Messages with Graphs

Although widely used in research to analyze data and to communicate about them, graphical displays are still poorly mastered by researchers, who often use the wrong graphs or use them in the wrong way (and popular software does not exactly help). Based on Dr. Doumont's book Trees, Maps, and Theorems addressing “effective communication for rational minds,” the lecture discusses how to select the right graph for a given data set and a given research question, how to optimize the graph's construction to reveal the data, and finally how to phrase a useful caption.
Speaker Bio

An engineer from the Louvain School of Engineering and PhD in applied physics from Stanford University, Jean-luc Doumont now devotes his time and energy to training engineers, scientists, business people, and other rational minds in effective communication, pedagogy, statistical thinking, and related themes.

For additional information on Dr. Doumont’s communication programs, visit www.principiae.be

We are only two weeks away from the next Mentoring@Purdue (M@P) seminar! The Mentor Match: Finding the Perfect Pairing is on Wednesday, September 27th from noon – 1:00pm in Pfendler Hall Room 241

Mentoring is increasingly being recognized by organizations as an effective strategy for helping to develop students’ knowledge and skills, and empowering them to reach their greatest potential. Mentoring can also help encourage individuals and provide clear role models for ideal behaviors such as sharing knowledge and implementing an organization’s vision. The pairing of two individuals is very important to any mentoring program. When people are paired correctly, mentoring can be a valuable experience. If pairings are not given much thought, mentoring can become a waste of time—or worse, a negative experience. The appropriate pairing of mentors and mentees is the first step to an empowering relationship. A valuable mentoring match has a number of components that give it strength and the power to transform an organization. Setting expectations for the relationship up front is a critical first step. Whatever your goals for mentoring, a clearly thought out process for pairing will be a significant first step in matching mentees and mentors. 

Join M@P for lunch and hear Ann Fry and Danica Kirkpatrick’s point of view on finding the perfect pairing between a mentee and a mentor. They are a part of the Purdue Ag Alumni Mentoring Program, which connects students in the College of Agriculture with Purdue Ag Alumni. The program aspires to bridge the gap between current and past College of Ag Boilermakers. Through the program, they provide Ag Alumni with a meaningful way to give back to Purdue and to engage with the College of Agriculture and its talented students. The program wants to provide College of Ag students personal and career development opportunities and resources to network and connect with Ag Alumni.

Postdoctoral Position at UCLA: Structural Biology of Host-Pathogen Interactions

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Los Angeles, CA. USA

A postdoctoral position is available in the Clubb laboratory in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at UCLA. The Clubb laboratory studies how pathogenic bacteria display and utilize virulence factors that are required for host colonization. We seek to obtain a mechanistic understanding of these processes and to leverage this knowledge to discover novel antimicrobial agents. Our research is interdisciplinary and employs structural-, chemical-, molecular- and synthetic-biology methods.

The postdoctoral scholar will be supported by a NSF grant and will use biophysical methods to investigate how the pathogen Staphylococcus aureus uses the IsdH surface receptor to extract heme from human hemoglobin. Studies will reveal the mechanism of extraction for the first time and are significant because this process is used by many bacterial species to obtain the essential nutrient iron. The postdoctoral scholar will perform NMR, stopped-flow spectrometry and isothermal titration calorimetry experiments to probe the mechanism of heme extraction. He/She will work with our collaborator to computationally model this process. Training in x-ray crystallography is also available.

Competitive applicants will have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Biochemistry, or a related field. They should have solid training in protein chemistry and a demonstrated record of success in developing and/or applying NMR methods to study chemical and/or biochemical systems. Ideal candidates will have experience in multidimensional NMR and bacterial expression of proteins. The project is supported by excellent NMR, crystallography and biophysics instrumentation facilities.

Inquiries and applications should be directed by email to Prof. Robert Clubb (rclubb@mbi.ucla.edu; http://www.biochemistry.ucla.edu/biochem/Faculty/Clubb). Applications should include a CV, brief description of research interests and contact information for references.

The University of California is an equal opportunity employer.
