Postdoctoral Research in Biological NMR and Structure Computation

These positions are for individuals who are interested in using high 
resolution NMR as a tool to elucidate intermolecular interactions and 
molecular recognition of nucleic acids, proteins and their complexes

Position 1
Professor Xiaolian Gao
Dept. of Chemistry
Dept. of Biophysical & Biological Sciences
University of Houston
Project: Enediyne antibiotic antitumor-DNA complexes.  Bio- and 
chemical synthesis of stable isotope labeling RNA and DNA 
oligonucleotides.  RNA and protein-RNA complexes.

Position 2 (requires permanent residency or US citizenship)

Univ. Texas Medical School at Houston
Project: Structure and function studies of membrane binding 
cardiovascular proteins, such as synthases of thromboxine synthase 
and prosgradin I2.  
Special requirements: Publications in protein chemistry and molecular 
biology.

Opening Date: Immediate. 

Specifications: 
- Ph.D. degree in Biophysics, Biochemistry, Chemistry, or related 
areas.

multidimensional NMR experiments for macrobiomolecular studies.  
- Strong background in NMR-based structure elucidation.
- Interests in using a variety of biophysical approaches to study 
biomolecules.
- Salary is highly competitive and commensurate with experience with 
a term of 1 - 2 years (renewable upon mutual agreement).

Major Facility:
Bruker AMX-II 600 MHz spectrometer (three RF channels and a 
gradient system) and other typical instruments for biophysical studies.
