POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN PROTEIN CRYSTALLOGRAPHY

A postdoctoral position is available immediately at the University of Minnesota 
to participate in crystallographic analyses of structure-function relationships 
in several multisubunit proteins.  Human ornithine transcarbamylase and 
amphibian ferritin are of particular interest.  With human ornithine 
transcarbamylase, the goal is to understand the structural basis of the clinical
effects of mutations that produce hyperammonemia.  With ferritin, the goal is to
understand the structural basis of biochemical differences in ferritins that are
differentially expressed by different ferritin genes.  Both proteins have been 
crystallized and structures have been determined under some of the conditions of
interest.  

The University of Minnesota has a strong program in structural biology with 
state of the art equipment for X-ray crystallography, NMR and high performance 
computing.

Experience in macromolecular crystallography is required.  The search will 
remain open until the position has been filled.  Please send curriculum vitae 
and the names of three references to: Dr. Norma Allewell, Department of 
Biochemistry, University of Minnesota, St. Paul MN 55405 or email to 
norma at tc.umn.edu.
