At the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Biomolecular Structure
Center of the University of Washington in Seattle an HHMI position is
available for a
in the group of Dr. Wim G.J. Hol, whose research is devoted to protein
crystallography, structure based drug design, and protein engineering.
Current projects focus on a variety of drug target proteins such as
cholera toxin, trypanosomal enzymes, Fe-dependent repressors, topo-
isomerases, multi-enzyme complexes, malaria drug targets and vaccine
candidates, plus others. This multidisciplinary setting has a marvelous
infrastructure for computational activities in crystal structure
determination as well as in computer design and screening of novel
protein inhibitors in the fields of infectious diseases and cancer.
The position includes the development of new software, installation
and maintenance of new software from outside sources, as well as
introducing new group members to the computing environment, assisting
in the installation and maintenance of an extensive network of computer
systems, and participating in challenging ongoing crystallographic and
modeling projects in the group.
The ideal candidate is a person with experience in using and developing
protein or small molecule crystallographic software, combined with a
sincere interest in molecular modeling software for drug design. Good
interpersonal skills are also essential.
Please address applications, which should contain a full cv,
a one-page summary of research and computing experience, and the full
addresses plus telephone numbers of three references to:
