Post-doctoral Fellowship in Biological Chemistry

Posted by: Instituto de Química, Universidade de são Paulo

Posted date: May-03-2019

Location: São Paulo/SP/Brazil

A postdoctoral position is available at the Departamento de Bioquímica, Instituto de Química, Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo, Brasil.

We are a motivated group that study the chemical and biochemical aspects of oxidative and photo-induced damage to biomolecules. Our studies focus on providing the mechanisms by which singlet molecular oxygen (1O2) and other “reactive oxygen species” play their physiological and pathological roles. With this project, we are especially interested in answering the following question: What mechanism connects 1O2 with components of signalling pathways? 


The elucidation of specific signalling molecules and their key roles in redox signalling processes in cells are the aims of the study.

The position requires a PhD with a background in cell culture models, high performance liquid separation techniques,mass spectrometry-based proteomics and bioinformatics to process posttranslational modifications and quantitative proteomics.  Other biochemical approaches such as gel electrophoresis and Elisa are a plus.

The successful candidate is expected to design and perform experiments and interpret data independently.

Interested applicants should email a cover letter with the description of research interests and experience, curriculum vitae, and names of three references (all in pdf format) to pdmascio(at)iq.usp.br
