    Description: Postdoctoral position in Cell Biology and Translational Medecine Intracellular organization and dynamics in skeletal muscle under normal and pathological conditions The regulation of the intracellular organization of skeletal muscle is poorly understood. We study rare and severe neuromuscular disorders caused by mutations in proteins affecting organelles and membrane trafficking. Our team has identified the myotubularin family of phosphoinositide phosphatases mutated in several neuromuscular disorders including myopathies and peripheral neuropathies, and has recently involved the amphiphysin-dynamin complex in similar diseases. While focusing on these genetic diseases, our approaches are multidisciplinary and encompass the identification of the implicated genes by next generation sequencing, the study of the molecular and cellular functions of these proteins in cells and in C. elegans, the validation of mammalian disease models, and the use of viral vectors (AAVs) for pathophysiology studies and preclinical therapeutic trials. In parallel, we study the function of these proteins in skeletal muscle through the development of imaging methods (correlative microscopy and in vivo imaging) in close contact with our institutional platforms. The candidate will contribute to characterize the cellular roles of myotubularins, amphiphysin and dynamin on membrane and organelle trafficking in muscle cells and tissues, both under normal and pathological conditions. Candidates must be highly motivated and have a PhD in molecular or cellular biology. A background in cell biology will be an asset. French speaking is not a requirement. The IGBMC institute is one of the leading European centres of biomedical research located in Strasbourg's science park in France. We have excellent funding and core facilities, which include on-site transgenic services and in-house Next Gen sequencing, antibody production, and confocal/electron imaging together with bioinformatics, structural biology and microarray platforms. Scientists from more than 40 countries work at the IGBMC. Strasbourg is an international and cosmopolitan city, with a very nice countryside, close to Germany and 2 hours from Paris by train.

The beamlines will be fully tunable and will use adaptive X-ray optics to produce focal sizes in the 1-20 micron range with high photon fluxes. High-precision multi-axis goniostats and advanced robotics for crystal handling will make it possible to work on the most demanding samples. The beamlines are embedded in the Integrated Facility for Structural Biology, which includes a high-throughput crystallization facility producing interesting samples for pushing forward data collection and structure solution methodology. Applications are invited for a post-doc position in the group of Thomas Schneider at EMBL Hamburg. A variety of research and development projects to make optimum use of the new crystallographic beamlines for challenging structural biology projects are available. Qualifications and Experience Applicants should hold a PhD degree in physics, biophysics or a related field. They should be a team player and have excellent communication skills to collaborate in an international and multi-disciplinary team of scientists and engineers.

    Postdoctoral Associate: Physics Problems in Protein Structure Determination

    Cornell University

    Department: Physics
    Location: Ithaca, NY USA
    Start Date: 3/1/10
    Duration: 2 years (contingent on sustained funding)
    Description: Our group studies a variety of problems related to the determination of protein structures by X-ray crystallography. One area of current focus is the physics of cryopreservation of protein solutions, protein crystals and other biological materials. We want to understand what happens to water and protein when they are cooled in solution, inside crystals and inside cells; and how factors including cryoprotectants and cooling rates affect ice nucleation and growth and protein conformational transformations. Based on this understanding, we want to develop new methods to maximize the information that can be obtained from protein crystals using X-ray crystallography, to apply these methods to select proteins, and to improve the cryopreservation of cells and tissues. We have recently developed two methods that have significant potential to impact our understanding of protein structure and dynamics. The first allows us to cool crystals 100 times faster than in conventional flash cooling methods. Most crystals can now be successfully cooled without any penetrating cryoprotectants, and the resulting X-ray determined protein structures are closer to the biologically relevant room-temperature structure. The second method allows us to collect high quality data from many proteins as a continuous function of temperature between 300 K and 100 K, including in the heretofore inaccessible region between 220 K and 180 K, near the protein dynamical transition. This makes possible a variety of studies of the conformational energy landscape and protein-solvent interactions. We are seeking a postdoctoral associate to continue and extend our current program, which includes a variety of physical measurements in addition to synchrotron-based X-ray crystallography. Candidates should have excellent "hands-on" experimental skills, interests in physics, physical chemistry and protein structure/function, and some synchrotron-based X-ray diffraction experience. They should be able to work quickly and efficiently, with a keen eye for what is important, and have excellent oral and written communication skills in English. Because of difficulties in evaluating credentials, interviewing, and securing visas for foreign candidates, only applications from those currently resident in and having visa status within the US or Canada will be considered.
    Please submit: CV, brief (2 paragraph) statement of interest.

    Start Date: Immediately
    Description: A POSTDOCTORAL POSITION at the Yale University School of Medicine is available for a multidisciplinary and collaborative research project. Both human thymidylate synthase (TS) and dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) are targets of cancer therapy due to their importance in DNA biosynthesis and DNA repair (for TS) and for de novo synthesis of purines and pyrimidines as well as the synthesis of certain amino acids (for DHFR). The binding of these proteins to their mRNA inhibits translation providing a mechanism of auto-regulation. In addition to the structural source of these interactions, we are also interested in understanding the mechanism by which binding of mRNA inhibits enzymatic activity (competitive, non-competitive, or uncompetitive). Training and experience in biochemistry and X-ray crystallography is required.

    POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE

    Brookhaven National Laboratory

    Department: Biology
    Location: Upton, NY, U.S.A.
    Start Date: 1st quater 2008
    Duration: Two years
    Description: This new project is under the direction of A. M. Orville, and is also associated with the PXRR group (www.px.nsls.bnl.gov) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL). The PXRR group conducts research, technology development, operations, and training at six beamlines (X8, X12b, X12c, X25, X26c, X29) at the National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS). A long-term goal for the PXRR group is to create a resource for macromolecular crystallography at NSLS-II, the new synchrotron light source that is being created at BNL during the next five to seven years. Microcrystals only a few microns along an edge are often easy to obtain; but, are typically of no use for traditional diffraction studies. In contrast, the brightness and focused beam anticipated at NSLS-II provides an ideal opportunity to use microcrystals for diffraction studies. A major barrier that remains to be overcome is how to manipulate microcrystals for structure determination. Part of the research strategy will be to use a large number of randomly oriented microcrystals, from each of which only a small fraction of the whole dataset is collected, in order to build-up the complete dataset. Full expression of these methods may approach the physical limits of crystal diffraction and will clearly help motivate the optimum performance of NSLS-II. Consequently, we will develop novel microcrystallography methods at the NSLS and look forward to utilizing the outstanding characteristics of NSLS-II facility. The position requires a Ph.D. in biochemistry, structural biology, chemistry, or physics. Experience in macromolecular crystallography and/or synchrotron x-ray sources is desired. The prospective candidate must be able to interact with a diverse group of scientists and engineers, as well as work independently. Send CV and contact information for four mentors or referees to felicia@bnl.gov referring to Position No. FH4835.
