A position is available NOW in a recently-formed laboratory devoted to
x-ray crystallography of integral membrane proteins.  A motivated,
creative and ambitious individual is sought for projects involving
crystallization and structure determination of membrane proteins. 
Current projects include an NIH-funded program in crystallography of
human aquaporin water channels, plus a variety of other membrane
proteins including receptors and ion channels.  Experience in de novo
structure determination and other crystallographic endeavors is
required.  In addition, some experience and interest in molecular
biology and protein expression/purification is strongly desired.  Please
send curriculum vitae, description of research interests, names of three
references (or other inquiries) to: Prof. Michael Wiener, Dept. of
Molecular Physiology & Biological Physics, University of Virginia Health
Sciences Center, P.O. Box 10011, Charlottesville, VA 22906-0011.

The University of Virginia (UVA) has a strong and well-equipped program
in protein crystallography.  Faculty include: Zygmunt Derewenda, Robert
Kretsinger, Wladek Minor, Fraydoon Rastinejad and Michael Wiener.  In
addition, UVA is a very rich environment for the study of the structure
and function of membrane proteins, with many labs involved in this
general research area.
