Research - Laboratory/Non-Laboratory, Staff/Administrative
The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is one of the three research and teaching departments in the School of Pharmacy at UCSF. As part of its research mission, Dr. England's research laboratory focuses on developing chemical tools for decoding biology and advancing medicine. The laboratory is currently developing small molecules to control the activity of nuclear receptors, a class of intracellular proteins that regulate gene expression in response to endogenous hormones and other small molecules. These receptors play critical roles in human development, physiology, and disease and have proven to be effective therapeutic drug targets.
The Staff Research Associate II (SRA II) will prepare small molecules designed to target nuclear receptors using traditional synthetic organic chemistry methods, and then characterize the binding of those ligands to isolated receptors using biophysical methods, such as surface plasmon resonance (SPR), microscale thermophoresis (MST).
