Signal Transduction Postdoc Avail/Boston

Postdoctoral Position Available
Tufts University School of Medicine-NEMC
Boston, MA

We have an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to 
work in the field of molecular signaling and peptide-protein 
recognition.  The project focuses on the yeast mating 
peptide-receptor and the human thrombin receptor.  These 
receptors activate signal transduction pathways culminating 
in mitotic arrest in the case of the yeast system 
and mitotic activation in the case of the thrombin 
receptor.  Molecular biology techniques will be used to 
construct recombinant receptors and express these receptors 
in yeast strains.  Receptors will be characterized by 
various genetic and biochemical methods.  Insight into the 
molecular interactions between these peptides and their cognate 
receptors should provide leads for the development of anti-
thrombotic agents.

The laboratory is located within the Center of Hemostasis 
and Thrombosis Research, a modern, state-of-the-art facility 
with a staff of 20 investigators including technical support. 
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:
