Department: Biochemistry
Location: Bronx, New York
Start Date: Immediately
Duration: 1 yr, renewable

Description: A postdoctoral position is available to work on the crystallization and
three-dimensional structure determination of enzymes of the biosynthetic 
pathway that leads to diaminopimelic acid and lysine in bacteria. Enzymes 
of this pathway represent an attractive target for anti-bacterial inhibitor 
design. Most of the enzyme in the pathway have been cloned from different 
sources and quantities of pure, overexpressed protein are available. The work 
will involve solving the structure of these enzymes, as well as conducting 
studies on complexes of the enzymes with inhibitors. The laboratory is 
equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for X-ray crystallography and 
biochemistry.  Experience in macromolecular crystallography is required. Salary 
will depend on experience.
Please submit: CV, 3 references
