|Postdoctoral||Saclay, France - , |
|Job Open: 28-Aug-2006 Job Close: 28-Aug-2007|
|A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of
Membrane proteins at Saclay starting late 2006.
Our group is currently working on membrane protein structure-
function relationship with a special emphasis on protein-lipid
interactions. We have recently been working on a membrane
receptor involved in the translocation of cholesterol across
the mitochondrial membrane. The main goal of this project is
to propose a model of the translocator and of its interactions
with its partners. This translocator is currently expressed in
large amounts and preliminary NMR experiments indicate the
feasability of high resolution NMR structural work. The
applicant will be involved in the NMR structural
characterization of this protein and its interactions with
This work benefits from a tight collaboration with a group
involved in the biochemical and biological aspects of the
project and with X-ray crystallographers.
This project is supported by an ANR grant.
Available spectrometers: 500, 600 and 700 MHz Bruker equipped
The applicant could be either a biologist, biochemist or
biophysicist with expertise in high resolution heteronuclear
multidimensional NMR spectroscopy. Experience with protein
expression, purification and characterization will be an
