BIOLOGY/VIROLOGY


ST. VINCENT'S INSTITUTE OF MEDICAL RESEARCH, MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA


Three post-doctoral positions in structural biology  and one in
molecular biology/virology are available at St. Vincent's Institute of
Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia (telephone +613-9288-2480, fax
+613-9416-2676).


<italic>Structural Biology</italic>:

1. Structural studies of HIV and other retroviral envelope proteins.
Experience in protein expression, purification, crystallization and
crystal structure determination is desirable.

2. Crystal structure determination of protein-ligand complexes of
phenylalanine hydroxylase, an enzyme with complex regulatory and
catalytic properties. Experience in X-ray crystallography is
desirable.

3. Molecular modelling and experimental testing of substrate
specificity of protein kinases. Experience in molecular modelling and
molecular biology is desirable.

Structure/function studies of chemokine receptors, co-receptors for
HIV. Experience in molecular biology and protein expression and
purification is desirable. Inquires to Dr. Andy Poumbourios (e-mail
a.poumbourios at medicine.unimelb.edu.au).


Salaries will be according to qualifications and experience. The
positions are available from January 1998.
