POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS
X-RAY CRYSTALLOGRAPHY

Two funded POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS are available immediately 
to examine structure/function relationships of medically relevant 
protein molecules using X-ray crystallography and other biophysical 
techniques.  Both positions require previous experience in macromolecular 
crystallography OR extensive experience in protein structure/function 
analysis and heterologous protein expression.  Current projects include 
antioxidant proteins and their derivatives, copper chaperone proteins, 
blue copper electron transfer proteins, and platelet-activating factor 
(PAF) metabolizing enzymes.  Salaries will range from $25,000 - $35,000 
per year, commensurate with qualifications.

The laboratory is part of the X-ray Crystallographic Core facility in the 
Center for Biomolecular Structure Analysis located in the new Allied Health 
Research Building.  State-of-the-art crystallographic (R-Axis IV area detector, 
Osmic confocal optics, RU-300 generator, X-STREAM) and computational (DEC Alphas/SGIs) 
facilities are in place and are fully functional.  Ample shared facilities 
(high-field NMR, protein core, DNA sequencing, mass spec, analytical 
ultracentrifugation, etc.) are also available in the Department of Biochemistry.

Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in biochemistry, chemistry, molecular biology, 
or a related field.  Interested persons are asked to send their curriculum vitae 
along with the names and addresses for three letters of reference to:
