Abbott Laboratories is currently seeking candidates to fill two
positions within our protein crystallography group.  One position
is a permanent, Ph.D. level position, while the second is a postdoctoral
fellowship, with a one year term renewable for up to three years.

Candidates for these positions should be exceptionally skilled and
strongly motivated.  These positions require independent thought and work,
as well as cooperation within the Abbott environment.  We are interested
in people with a strong background in the solution, refinement, and analysis
of protein structures.  Applicants should also be interested in using protein
structures to develop novel pharmacological therapies.

The crystallographic effort at Abbott will be comprised of at least five Ph.D.
level crystallographers as well as a number of post-doctoral fellows.  Abbott
is a member of the Industrial Macromolecular Crystallography Association, a 
consortium of leading pharmaceutical companies which is developing a sector at
the Advanced Photon Source at the Argonne National Laboratory.  We expect to
have access to these new beam lines in 1996.  In addition, the crystallographic
group at Abbott is supported by a large protein purification and expression
group.  We also enjoy close interactions with Abbott's macromolecular NMR
and computer aided molecular design groups.

Applications must be received by April 28th, 1995.  Please forward C.V.'s
along with names of referees to the address listed below.  Applications 
can also be sent to the FAX number given below.
