          Post-doctoral position at Brandeis University

A post-doctoral position is immediately available to investigate
conformational changes in a chloride ion channel related to gating.
We have well-ordered, two-dimensional crystals of this channel that
are suitable for high-resolution studies (cf. Mindell et al. [2001]
Nature 409: 219-223).  The candidate will join a multidisciplinary
team working in the field of structural biology.  Our general goal
is to determine the three-dimensional structures of proteins and
macromolecular complexes using high-resolution electron cryo-microscopy.
Electron microscopy is a rapidly developing technique to explore a
large number of cellular structures with medical and biological
importance.  We have a well-established electron microscope facility
and equipment for protein purification, sample preparation, and
image processing.

The ideal candidate will have a background in biochemistry, electron
microscopy, or X-ray crystallography.
