Postdoctoral Position in Protein NMR Rutgers University

Postdoctoral Position in Protein NMR
Rutgers University at Newark
Newark, NJ, USA

A postdoctoral position, funded primarily by an NIH grant, is available immediately to study by NMR the solution structure and inter-component interactions in pyruvate dehydrogenase and related multienzyme complexes from different sources. The complexes are important in metabolism and are excellent models for biological regulation as well. The suitability of solution state NMR for their study has been established. The group has more than 30 years of experience with thiamin enzymes with active collaborations in both solution and solid state NMR spectroscopy. The laboratory is located in the New York metropolitan area, an outstanding environment for research.

Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated expertise in biomolecular, triple-resonance NMR, especially the complete assignments and the solution structure determination of large proteins. Experience and interest in enzymology, molecular biophysics, and protein preparation and purification are welcome. The project is on track to yield information not available by x-ray structural studies to date. The candidate will be the major user of an in-house Varian Inova 600 MHz spectrometer and will have access to an 800 MHz NMR instrument as needed.

Please send inquiries, applications, and two to three letters of recommendation to:
