Postdoctoral Position Available
Tufts University School of Medicine-NEMC
Boston, MA 


We have an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to work in the 
field of peptide-protein recognition and structure and molecular 
signaling.  The project involves structure-function studies of the 
interaction of peptides with recombinant yeast mating pheromone-receptors 
and the human thrombin receptor.  Insight into the molecular interactions 
between these peptides and their cognate receptors should provide leads 
for the development of anti-thrombotic agents.

The project involves the use of molecular biology techniques to construct 
recombinant receptors and express these receptors in yeast strains.  
Receptors will be characterized by various genetic and physical methods, 
purified and labeled with affinity-peptides.

Support for this position derives from an NIH Training Grant in 
Hematology from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute.  
Qualifications for this position are a Ph.D. degree and US citizenship or 
permanent residency.  Candidates with training in yeast genetics who 
would like to acquire expertise in protein chemistry are encouraged to 
apply.  Interested candidates should send a letter describing their 
research interests, a CV, and names of three references to:
