An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately to join a project investigating the mechanism of transmembrane signaling in bacterial chemotaxis receptors.
The successful applicant will apply solid-state NMR, combined with other biophysical, biochemical, and molecular biology approaches, to membrane-bound signaling arrays of bacterial chemotaxis proteins (eg Fowler, D. J.; Weis, R. M.; Thompson, L. K. Biochemistry 2010, 49, 1425. http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/bi901565k).
Individuals with a PhD, relevant experience in NMR and other biophysical/biochemical studies, and strong interest in membrane proteins should email a CV and 3 letters of recommendation to Prof. Lynmarie K. Thompson, email@example.com.
