An NIH-funded Postdoc position is available immediately to study the structure and function of ATP-dependent molecular machines [Cell (2004),119:653; Cell (2003),115:229].The position requires a recent Ph.D. in one of the natural sciences relevant to structural biochemistry.

Applicants must be highly motivated and must have demonstrated experience (i.e. relevant publications) with methods used for 3D protein structure determination, including recombinant protein expression, purification, and crystallization. Experience with gene cloning and site-directed mutagenesis is an advantage.

Salary will be commensurate with experience and will be in addition to a generous fringe benefit package.

U.S. News & World Report recently ranked BCM among the top 10 medical schools in the United States. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at BCM is ranked 2nd out of 109 medical school departments with respect to NIH research grant support.

Our lab is fully equipped for all aspects of molecular biology, protein chemistry, and protein crystallography. In addition, BCM is also part of the Gulf Coast Protein Crystallography Consortium (GCPCC) that operates its own MAD beamline in Baton Rouge, LA

To apply, please send a current resume including a brief description of research interests and accomplishments, and the names and addresses of three referees to: Dr. Francis Tsai, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Baylor College of Medicine, One Baylor Plaza, Room 315B, Houston, Texas 77030, USA.
