Postdoctoral Position in DNP-Enhanced MAS Solid State NMR Studies of the Mechanism of Energy Transduction by Bacteriorhodopsin.
A postdoctoral position will be available in late 2009 for studies of the structures of cryotrapped intermediates in the ion-motive photocycle of bacteriorhodopsin. The appointment will be at Brandeis University for spectroscopy to be carried out at the MIT/Harvard Center for Magnetic Resonance, as part of a long-term collaboration between the Herzfeld group at Brandeis and the Griffin group at MIT. (The two institutions are a few miles apart in the Boston area.) The one-year appointment will be annually renewable by mutual consent.
A strong background in NMR spectroscopy is required. Interested individuals should send a CV and the e-mail addresses of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
