A postdoctoral position is available for a skilled protein crystallographer
interested in challenging projects in the Hurley lab, NIDDK, NIH. We are
seeking to understand the structure and function of membrane-associated
multiprotein complexes involved in protein and lipid trafficking. Some of
these complexes include one or more integral membrane proteins. We offer a
superbly equipped facility and an interdiscplinary evironment that
encourages skill and career development both within and beyond
crystallographic structure determination. The lab integrates techniques from
yeast cell biology to reconstitution of membrane trafficking along with
structural analysis. See
http://www-mslmb.niddk.nih.gov/hurley/index.html for more information.
Experience is required in crystallizing challenging integral membrane
proteins and/or multiprotein complexes expressed in eukaryotic systems.
Substantial experience in crystallographic data collection, processing,
phasing, and refinement is required.
Candidates should have less than five years previous postdoctoral
experience. Send cv and names of three references to [log in to unmask]
