Postdoc position in NMR protein structure and dynamics, Purdue University U.S.A.

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the research group of Carol Post at Purdue University (www.purdue.edu/postlab) starting immediately to study the functional behavior of protein tyrosine kinases by NMR and other biophysical methods.  The project aims to characterize substrate binding, membrane-receptor interactions, and the conformational response to phosphorylation of protein tyrosine kinases to elucidate recognition and regulation of signaling pathways in the cell.  The biophysical results will be tightly linked to cellular processes through collaboration with cell biologists.  The applicant must have a strong publication record in biophysics or biochemistry, be highly motivated toward research and discovery, and work effectively in a collaborative environment.  An ideal candidate will have experience in multidimensional NMR, bacterial expression of proteins, ITC and computation.  This project is supported by excellent NMR facilities managed by outstanding staff (www.pinmrf.purdue.edu), biophysical facilities at Bindley Biosciences (www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/bioscience/) and laboratories in the Wayne and Mary Hockmeyer Hall of Structural Biology ( www.bio.purdue.edu/hockmeyer/index.htm).  The excellence of the Purdue University research environment is made evident from recently established research Institutes (www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/pillars/). Interested candidates should send a CV and names of three references to Prof. Carol B. Post , Purdue University, cbp@purdue.edu.
