Below are our current protease-related job listings:
POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY
University of Maryland - School of Medicine
Independent, motivated, early-stage postdoctoral fellows with experience in enzyme purification and an interest in secreted proteins and peptides are sought for a position in an established neurobiology/endocrinology laboratory at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. The successful candidate will purify two overexpressed prohormone convertases for crystallography, in one case using procedures already known to be successful in generating small crystals. He/she will also work on the regulation of prohormone convertases by endogenous mechanisms (oligomerization, the role of the inhibitory tail domain, and cellular targeting), and/or characterize novel synthetic inhibitors developed by our collaborators.
Please email a CV, a brief statement of your research interests, and the email addresses and phone numbers of three references, to Dr. Iris Lindberg at email@example.com. At least one first-author paper in a refereed, English-language, journal is required for consideration.
