Structural biology of peripheral membrane proteins involved in signal transduction
Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately in Dr. Tatyana Igumenova’s laboratory at Texas A&M University, Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics. The first project involves the structural and dynamical studies of proteins involved in signal transduction at the membrane surface (Protein Kinase C) and membrane fusion (Synaptotagmin 1) and their interactions with membranes. The second project focuses on studying the effects of toxic metal ions on the structure, dynamics, and membrane interactions of these protein systems. Both projects make use of advanced NMR methods, X-ray crystallography, fluorescence spectroscopy, and biochemical techniques. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in chemistry, physics, biochemistry, or a related field. Experience in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy, computational methods, and protein expression/purification methods is a plus. Salary is commensurate with experience. The applicants should send their CV, the names of three referees, and representative publications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Texas A&M University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer that is committed to improving diversity.
