Fellowship in the Krishnamurthy Lab. Research in the Krishnamurthy lab encompasses a broad spectrum of synthetic chemistry and methodology applied to understanding the chemistry associated with Life’s origins. This project involves the synthesis and investigation of the role of polysaccharides within the context of origins of life chemistry.

Interested parties should email their CV and a description of their research interests to Prof. Ram Krishnamurthy at: rkrishna@scripps.edu and should have three letters of reference forwarded on their behalf. The applicant is expected to start by July 2016.

Position Requirements: Must possess a doctoral degree. A pending doctoral degree may be considered with approval of the Principal Investigator.

Qualified candidates should have a Ph.D. in organic chemistry and be well grounded in analytical techniques. The applicant should have a synthetic organic chemistry background with a strong emphasis in carbohydrate and polysaccharide chemistry, coupled with experience in analytical techniques of carbohydrates.
Principal Investigator Brian Paegel

Postdoctoral position in Chemical and Structural Biology of RNA

A postdoctoral position in RNA chemical biology is available in the Disney group in The Department of Chemistry at The Scripps Research Institute (for more information please see: http://www.scripps.edu/disney/). Successful candidates will have a proven track record of publishing in high impact journals and experience in nucleic acids, medicinal chemistry, or chemical biology and can work successfully as a member of a team. An emphasis will be placed on candidates that have published high impact publications.

Position Requirements: The specific focus is on the rational design of small molecules that target RNA for use as both lead therapeutics and chemical probes of function as applied toward diseases that have no known therapeutic or to which there is poor prognosis with current treatments such as inherited neuromuscular diseases such as ALS (see: Neuron. 2014 Sep 3;83(5):1043-50) and Muscular Dystrophy (see: Angew Chem Int Ed Engl. 2014 Oct 6;53(41):10956-9 and ACS Chem Biol. 2013 Oct 18;8(10):2312-21) and highly resistant cancers (see: Nat Chem Biol. 2014 Apr;10(4):291-7). Interested applicants should have their CV and three letters of reference sent to Disney@scripps.edu.
