Wolfe Laboratories, Inc. has yet *another* an immediate need for which your recent graduates may be interested! This is a newly-created position due to our growth. Recent grads, or those graduating this month, are encouraged to apply.

I want to point out that our Postdoctoral Scientist positions are not for a specific length of time, as are many academic postdoc roles. This is a full time “permanent” job, with the anticipation of once the postdoc attains certain milestones they are then moved into a different position in the company (Scientist I, Project Manager, and other opportunities as well).

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.

Wolfe Laboratories, Inc. has an immediate need for which your current, or recent, graduates may be interested. This is a newly-created position due to our growth. May, or even June, 2017, graduates are certainly eligible to apply as well as recent grads.

I want to point out that our Postdoctoral Scientist positions are not for a specific length of time, as are most academic postdoc roles. This is a full time “permanent” job, with the anticipation of once the postdoc attains certain milestones they are then moved into a different position in the company (Scientist I, Project Manager, and other opportunities as well).

Thank you for your assistance in distributing these to your students, and hopefully I’ll get a lot of interest! As usual, should you have any questions, feel free to ask away. Thanks.

Regards,

Professor Kartik Ariyur, Visiting Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering is teaching a new course ‘Innovation and Problem Solving’ (ME 59700)  this coming Fall and it is open to the schools of Engineering and Science, besides agriculture, and perhaps the data driven Humanities and Social sciences.

 Innovation and Problem Solving with an emphasis on TRIZ tools

https://engineering.purdue.edu/ProEd/App/courses/course?name=innovation-problem-solving-emphasis-triz-tools

The prerequisites are linear algebra, differential equations, and basic probability or consent of instructor. It will be on both in class and online. The course has been endowed by an alumnus with the hope of stimulating significant innovation. The hope is we will get a good bit of online attendance from people in industry who have longstanding unsolved problems. Those were the people who benefited most when I taught the material in industry in a far more rudimentary form than what I have now. Those working to formulate their research problems (MS/PhD theses), or senior design projects will also benefit significantly in developing several workable solution approaches.

I have attached a course flyer with details about the course and my bio. The aim will be to both teach problem solving methods, and develop the mental resilience needed to use them persistently. Problem solving methods include TRIZ tools of eliminating trade-offs and idealization, and those developed in mathematics, physics, engineering, and business. The building of mental resilience will be aided by solving hard Olympiad style problems in math, physics, and engineering or other subjects as needed.
