Candidates are sought for post-doctoral and staff scientist positions as
part of a campus-wide expansion of structural biology research at the
University of Missouri-Columbia.  Funded postdoctoral opportunities are
available in the protein crystallography laboratories of Prof. Lesa Beamer
and Prof. John J. Tanner, while two permanent staff positions are available
in the Structural Biology Core Facility.

The Beamer group focuses on structure/function studies of proteins relevant
to human infectious disease, including the human
bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein (BP).  An NSF funded
postdoctoral position is available to carry out structure/function studies
of BPI with the goal of understanding its bactericidal and LPS-binding
activities.  Please send your CV, including contact information for three
references, by post or email to Dr. Beamer at the address listed below.

The Tanner group is studying the structure and dynamics of biomolecular
recognition using X-ray crystallography and molecular dynamics simulations.
An NIH-funded position is available to study protein-ligand and
protein-protein recognition processes involved in laser tissue welding.  A
second position is available for the study of DNA recognition by
antibodies.  Please send your CV, including contact information for three
references, by post or email to Dr. Tanner at the address listed below.

Two permanent staff positions are available in the newly formed Structural
Biology Core Facility.  The Core is part of the Life Sciences Mission
Enhancement Program funded by the State of Missouri
(http://www.research.missouri.edu/lsme/).    The mission of the Core is to
foster and encourage structural biology collaborations on campus by
providing the infrastructure necessary for biomolecular structure
determination.

SB Core Position 1.  The Core is seeking a Ph.D. scientist with a strong
background in protein crystallography who will be primarily responsible for
data collection and structure determination for Core projects and in
training graduate students.  The candidate should have experience in X-ray
data collection, phasing, and refinement.   Salary will depend on the
experience and qualifications of the candidate.  To apply, please send your
CV, including contact information for three references, by post or email to
Prof. John J. Tanner at the address listed below.

SB Core Position 2. The Core is seeking a candidate with a bachelor's or
master's degree with expertise in protein purification and crystallization.
Salary will depend on the experience and qualifications of the candidate.
To apply, please send your CV, including contact information for three
references, by post or email to Prof.  Lesa J. Beamer at the address listed
below.  In addition, mail your CV to the Human Resources Department,
University of Missouri-Columbia, 130 Heinkel Building, Columbia, MO  65211.
Quote vacancy number D57507 when applying.

Mizzou is the flagship University of the Missouri state system and Columbia
is a quintessential college town.  The population is 75,000 plus 25,000
students.  Located midway between St. Louis and Kansas City, Columbia is
ranked as one of the top 10 best places to live in the Midwest by Money
Magazine.  Big 12 sports and outdoor activities, such as biking on the Katy
Trail, canoeing, and caving, are easily accessible.  The low cost of
living, low crime rate, and excellent public school systems make Columbia
especially attractive for families.

X-ray facilities at MU are housed in the Elmer O. Schlemper X-ray
Diffraction Center and include RAXIS IV and MAR 300 mm detectors, a Rigaku
Rotating anode, Osmic confocal blue optics, and X-stream cryogenics.
Computing facilities include several Alpha workstations, Intel
workstations, and a multiprocessor SGI Power Challenge L computer.  The
X-ray equipment is maintained by a full time Ph.D. staff member and the
computing environment is maintained by a system administrator.

Informal E-mail and phone inquiries about any of these positions are most
welcome.
