Congratulations to Grace Usher, who was selected as a Student Poster Award winner at the 2019 Biophysical Society Meeting!
Congratulations to Eric Gibbs, who defended his Ph.D. during the spring of 2017. It was a pleasure to have Eric with us in the lab over the years and he will be missed, both by us and the CEGR community. Eric has moved to a postdoctoral position at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We look forward to seeing the great things that come!
Congratulations to Rico Acevedo, who defended his Ph.D. during the spring of 2016. Rico returned to State College with his family for Summer Commencement. The hooding ceremony is always a worthwhile event, because it symbolizes the effort that students (and their mentors) put into their graduate degrees. It was a pleasure to have Rico in our group and we wish him the best with his future career.
The laboratory of Professor Scott Showalter in the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at the Pennsylvania State University seeks to fill a postdoctoral research position to investigation structure-function relationships for intrinsically disordered proteins. The position will involve the design and implementation of NMR pulse programs for carbon-detected biomolecular NMR spectroscopy. Previous experience with NMR pulse programing is not required, but experience with biomolecular NMR, broadly defined, is strongly preferred. The successful postdoctoral candidate will work in the context of our laboratory’s broader efforts, which also include computational modelling, as well as thermodynamic and kinetic binding assays. Thus, candidates with broad training in biochemistry, biophysics or physical chemistry will be the most competitive. Applications should be submitted electronically and should include a cover letter and curriculum vitae, including a description of prior training and other qualifications for this position and a list of publications. Appropriate candidates will be contacted by email and asked to arrange for letters of recommendation to be sent so that they might be considered further. This is a fixed term appointment for one year from the date of hire with possibility of re-funding. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until a suitable candidate is found.
Congratulations to Josh Kranick, who defended his M.S. in Chemistry. Josh has moved on to an exciting new job at Keystone Nano.
Congratulations to Monique Bastidas, who defended her Ph.D. during the spring. Monique returned to State College with her family for Summer Commencement, which you can see here was a beautiful sunny day. The hooding ceremony is always a worthwhile event, because it symbolizes the effort that students (and their mentors) put into their graduate degrees. It was a pleasure to have Monique in our group and we wish her the best with her future career.
Welcome to the Showalter Laboratory’s new website! We are in the process of porting the content from our old website over here, so please pardon our “dust” as we finish the task. We look forward to communicating the exciting science and student achievements in our laboratory through this new site in the future, so please stop by from time to time and see what we are doing.
Thank you for your interest in our research and training opportunities. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to email me using the link at the bottom of the page.
