<x-flowed>A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratories of Prof.
Bridgette Barry and Prof. Robert Brooker at the University of
Minnesota. The project involves the study of the a transport
protein, the lactose permease, with reaction-induced FT-IR
spectroscopy (Patzlaff, J. S., R. J. Brooker, and B. A. Barry. 2000.
A reaction-induced Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopic study of
the lactose permease: a transmembrane potential perturbs carboxylic
acid residues. J. Biol. Chem. 275: 28695-28700). Site-directed
mutagenesis and isotope-editing will also be performed. The Barry
laboratory is equipped with two Nicolet FT-IR spectrometers and a new
Bruker 66v step scan/rapid scan FT-IR spectrometer, with time
resolution in the nanosecond/microsecond time regime. The position
is available immediately; salary will depend on the amount of
previous postdoctoral experience and be on the NIH postdoctoral pay
scale. If interested, please send a CV, summary of previous research
experience, and the names of three references to Prof. Bridgette
