Postdoctoral Fellowship on Functional Roles of Crystallins
A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Section on Molecular Structure and Functional Genomics, National Eye Institute (NEI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Bethesda, Maryland, to study functional roles of crystallins, particularly γ-crystallins, in lens and retina. The section uses techniques ranging from biophysics to mouse models to examine novel aspects of protein function, interaction and deposition in normal eye and in aging and disease. For more information, see www.nei.nih.gov/intramural/molstr.asp.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D., and a strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology or biophysics and less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience.
To apply, please send an email including a cover letter explaining your interest in the position, your CV and the names, phone numbers, postal and e-mail addresses of three references to:
Graeme Wistow, Ph.D.
