Postdoctoral Position Available
Tufts University School of Medicine-NEMC
We have an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to work in the
field of peptide-protein recognition and structure and molecular
signaling. The project involves structure-function studies of the
interaction of peptides with recombinant yeast mating pheromone-receptors
and the human thrombin receptor. Insight into the molecular interactions
between these peptides and their cognate receptors should provide leads
for the development of anti-thrombotic agents.
The project involves the use of molecular biology techniques to construct
recombinant receptors and express these receptors in yeast strains.
Receptors will be characterized by various genetic and physical methods,
purified and labeled with affinity-peptides.
Support for this position derives from an NIH Training Grant in
Hematology from the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute.
Qualifications for this position are a Ph.D. degree and US citizenship or
permanent residency. Candidates with training in yeast genetics who
would like to acquire expertise in protein chemistry are encouraged to
apply. Interested candidates should send a letter describing their
research interests, a CV, and names of three references to:
