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:
