Postdoctoral positions are available immediately in the Structural
Biology Laboratory headed by Dr. C. S. Raman at the University of
Maryland, Baltimore. Research in the Raman laboratory combines
structural, biophysical, biochemical, and cell biological approaches
to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying cellular signaling.
The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for
fermentation, high-throughput protein expression, purification,
crystallization (liquid handlers for screen generation and
optimization, Mosquito LCP robot, and crystal imaging systems), X-ray
diffraction, and high definition mass spectrometry (Synapt G2 HDMS).
In addition, we have ready access to synchrotron facilities. For a
representative example of our work, please consult Nature 455:
363-368.

    Applicants should hold a PhD in biochemistry, biophysics,
chemistry, molecular biology, or a closely related field. Applicants
should have experience in protein crystallography as well as a good
publication record. Strong background in protein expression and
biophysical characterization is essential. Expertise in membrane
protein purification is a plus. Furthermore, strong communication
skills in oral and written English are required.


To apply, please, send a letter of interest, a CV, and names of three
references by e-mail to: craman from rx.umaryland.edu
