A postdoctoral position in protein crystallography is available
in the Department of Molecular Cardiology at the Lerner Research
Institute of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.  Applicants should hold
a Ph.D. in biochemistry, chemistry, or a related field; prior experience
in macromolecular crystallography or in molecular biology and protein
expression is required.  The successful applicant will be involved in
several projects probing enzyme structure and function.  Initially, the
focus will be on the structure determination of a 66 kDa carboxylase,
for which well-diffracting crystals and preliminary SIRAS phases have
been obtained.

The laboratory is fully equipped for protein expression and
purification, and macromolecular crystallography.  Our group is one of
several new structural biology research labs in the Lerner Research
Institute, which houses about 100 independent laboratories and is the
research arm of the renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

This postdoctoral position is available immediately; applications will
be accepted until the position is filled.  Experienced macromolecular
crystallographers are preferred, but molecular biologists/protein
chemists strongly interested in expanding into crystallographic work,
will also be seriously considered.  Salary will be commensurate with
qualifications and experience.  Top applicants may compete for a
three-year Lerner Institute Fellowship which pays $32,000/yr in the
first year.  Interested applicants should send a cover letter, c.v.
and list of three references to:
