Protein Structure and Function. Position available at
the University of Alabama at Birmingham in the laboratory of Dr. Margaret Johnson. We use solution NMR
spectroscopy to study proteins involved in the metabolism and molecular recognition of poly(ADP-ribose),
a key biomolecule in the maintenance of genome integrity, chromatin structure, and the cell cycle. Areas of
research include determining high-resolution structures of proteins and protein complexes, enzymatic
synthesis, and computational simulations.
Enthusiastic, motivated researchers are encouraged
to apply. Candidates should have recently received a
Ph.D. in a related discipline and have a strong background in structural biology or biochemistry. To apply please send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and
contact information for three references to e-mail:

Affirmative Action Employer.
Two postdoctoral positions are immediately available for the study of lipid signaling, with an emphasis
of cholesterol and nuclear lipid signaling. Our interdisciplinary research includes quantitative imaging
of cellular lipids, genomic-scale analysis of membrane
binding proteins, and small molecule modulation of
membrane-protein interactions. Our group provides
a highly challenging and supportive environment with
state-of-the-art imaging and biophysical facilities. Motivated candidates with a strong background in cell biology, microscopy, and chemical biology are encouraged
