Dear friends,

I am constituting a team working on structure-function relationship in
membrane proteins and structural basis of interactions in biological
membranes at the South Bohemian University in Budweis, Czech Republic.
The team will be supported by a team grant from Czech Ministery of
Education and the suport will be rather generous, allowing us to equipp
the laboratories and to work without material shortage for next five
years. The team is constituted in colla boration with Prof. Da-Neng Wang
from New York and will cover the experimental range from isolation of
membrane proteins and their reconstitution through crystallisation and
structure determinantion by X-ray and electrone diffraction towards TRNOE
NMR of interacting domains and bound ligands. Initially we will follow
two lines - proteins from photosynthetic membranes and membrane receptors
related to multidrug resistance but we are open to accept project which
the group members bring with themselves in case that they will fit into
the general line of the project.

There are still 4-5 open positions on the assistant professor level as
co-applicants on the grant application for the research group. We
particularly welcome with biochemical background, preferentially with
partial knowledge of purifiaction of membrane proteins, reconstitution of
membrane proteins into vesicles or crystallisation of membrane proteins
but there is no strict limitation on it. Interested people will be
directing their own partially independent research line and supervising
undergraduated and Ph.D. students and teaching maximum 20% (probably
less) of their working time. The positions are career-like since the
university is bound to integrate the team into its structure after five
years. The salaries in the Czech Republic are approximately $200 a year
and the living costs are about to 1/4-1/5 of those in the west. The
positions are thus open mainly to researchers from former Soviet Union.
Interested scientists form the west are very welcome and may be accepted
but are encouraged, in their own interest, to apply for an independent
source to support their stay. The deadline for the application is end of
February 1996, results will be known in the end of  June and positions
will be available from October 1996.

Please send your CV, list of recent publications to Dr. Dalibor Stys,
preferably by e-mail on stys at entu.cas.cz or dalibor.stys at plantcell.lu.se
or post to Institute of Microbiology, Czech Academy of Science, CZ-379 81
Trebon-Opatovicky mlyn, Czech republic
or tel/fax. +42 333 2268,
or tel. +42 333 721101 or 721140.

I would be happy to answer all questions about the details of this project.

PLEASE ACT IMMEDIATELY, SINCE YOU SHOULD BE LISTED ON THE GRANT
APPLICATION AND SIGN IT. SINCE I AM NOT SUBSCRIBING MOST OF THE NETWORKS
TO WHICH I SENT THE REQUEST, PLEASE, SEND YOUR MAIL DIRECTLY TO ME.

Best regards

Dr. Dalibor Stys
