Beginning March 2006 one NSF funded postdoctoral position is  
available in structural biology of membrane proteins in the  
laboratory of Iban Ubarretxena-Belandia at the City College (CCNY) of  
the City University of New York (CUNY). This position involves the  
structure determination of intramembrane cleaving proteases, which  
are key players in the signal transduction mechanism known as  
regulated intramembrane proteolysis (RIP). RIP has been implicated in  
Alzheimer’s disease and other fundamental biological processes.  
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Structural Biology, Biochemistry,  
Biophysics or related discipline. Experience in cryo-electron  
microscopy or X-ray crystallography is desired. The successful  
candidate will be affiliated to the New York Structural Biology  
Center (NYSBC) located at the CCNY Manhattan campus. The NYSBC houses  
a large cluster of high-field research magnets for NMR and FEG cryo- 
electron microscopes. The center also has regular access to  
synchrotron beam lines X4A and X4C at the Brookhaven National  

The initial salary is $35,000 per year plus health and fringe  
benefits. The appointment is for one year and renewable for up to  
five years. Interested candidates should e-mail a cover letter, full  
CV and contact information of three professional referees to:
