Postdoctoral Position at FSU & NHMFL

Open postdoctoral position in the application of NMR to Systems and Structural Biology at Florida State University and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and the NHMFL are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to work on solution NMR methods with application to metabolomics and structural biology.

Recently, advances have been made for resolution enhancement of multidimensional NMR spectra and the reduction of measurement time, including covariance NMR. These approaches will be further developed and applied for the quantitative and rapid analysis of complex biological mixtures and the improved interpretation of multidimensional NMR spectra of proteins. Tools resulting from this research will be integrated in the public COLMAR webportal (http://spinportal.magnet.fsu.edu).

The successful candidate has a strong background in one or several of the following areas: experimental or computational protein NMR, analytical NMR, or metabolomics.

Research will be performed in the new Chemical Sciences Laboratory at FSU and the NHMFL. The Department and the NHMFL provide a cross-disciplinary environment with training opportunities and modern facilities to carry out the research. The NMR facility includes solution NMR spectrometers between 500 and 900 MHz, including three that are equipped with cryogenic probes.

The position will be available starting in June 2009. If you are interested, please send your CV to Rafael Brüschweiler along with names and email addresses of 3 individuals who can be asked for a reference.
