Post-Doctoral Position in Membrane Protein Structural Biology

Available immediately:  A post-doctoral fellowship to study the structure
and function of the Vpu protein, an ion channel from HIV.  The aim of this
fellowship is to determine the X-ray crystal structure of Vpu and to
correlate this structural information with functional studies.  The work is
funded by a program project award from the NIH, and is part of a close
collaboration between our laboratory and those of Stan Opella (NMR),
Michael Klein (molecular modelling), J. Kent Blasie (SANS/SAXS), and
Mauricio Montal (electrophysiology).
        We seek an experienced, enthusiastic, and ambitious macromolecular
crystallographer.  In addition, the successful candidate will be
well-versed in one or more of the following areas:  molecular biology,
protein purification and crystallization, or membrane protein & lipid
        The University of Pennsylvania is home to a large and interactive
community of biomedical scientists; support and facilities for structural
biology are excellent.  Penn is located in Philadelphia, the nation's 5th
largest city, offering a cosmopolitan environment with world class
performing arts, sports (except for perhaps the Phillies), and culinary and
recreational opportunities.  In addition, the city is close to ocean
resorts, mountains, New York City and the District of Columbia.
