Position Description


The Protein Signaling Domains Laboratory at the Fralin Life Sciences Institute at Virginia Tech is looking for a highly motivated graduate student for a multidisciplinary research program to study how adaptor proteins sort proteins and mediate membrane-dependent processes in both endosomal/lysosomal trafficking and autophagy. Our laboratory addresses these processes using structural biology, biochemical, and biophysical methods. The successful candidate should have a background in biochemistry, biological sciences, chemistry, or a related discipline. NMR experience is not required.

Review of applications will begin February 10, 2021. If you are interested in joining the lab, please send your CV including publication records and research experience, school grades, and the contact details of 2-3 references to:
