An opening exists at the University of Georgia for a postdoctoral associate to work on structural characterization of proteins using advanced NMR techniques. Primary responsibilities reside with our role in the Northeast Structural Genomics Consortium (NESG). These responsibilities involve structure improvement and validation of structures using RDC and RCSA data, as well as the production of a number of biologically relevant protein structures. Our lab also has strong programs in the glycobiology and vesicle trafficking areas, and we anticipate opportunities to be involved with these activities as well. We have excellent NMR instrumentation with a 600 MHz machine dedicated to the NESG project and higher field instruments with cryogenic probes at 800 and 900 MHz.
It is especially important that candidates have experience with advanced NMR methodology (either solution or solids) and are interested in the development of novel approaches to solving challenging problems in the structural biology area. Please send a letter describing your interests, along with a CV and the names of three individuals that may be contacted for reference letters, to James H. Prestegard (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 25, 2012. The University of Georgia is an AA/EEO employer.
