Postdoctoral Position in Protein Structure by NMR. University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. The Center for Eukaryotic Structural Genomics (CESG, www.uwstructuralgenomics.org) has an open position on its team of NMR structure solvers. CESG’s targets are chosen to expand knowledge of sequence-structure relationships (60%), to include proteins of biomedical relevance (20%), and to accommodate requests from the scientific community (20%). This is a challenging position for an experienced spectroscopist who enjoys solving structures and developing the technology of high-throughput solution structure determination.
The NMR team evaluates labeled proteins produced by CESG’s cell-based and cell-free platforms, optimizes solution conditions, solves and refines structures, and prepares data depositions. Data are collected at the National Magnetic Resonance Facility at Madison (www.nmrfam.wisc.edu). The position reports to the CESG NMR Team Leader, who in turn reports to John Markley. Team members are encouraged to write and publish papers on interesting structures and to devise and test hypotheses concerning functions of unknown proteins, often times by developing collaborations. The successful candidate will have the possibility of future promotion to an academic staff position. The position is available January 1, 2006; the project is funded through May, 2010. Interested candidates are encouraged to send their CV and application to John Markley (firstname.lastname@example.org).
