Postdoctoral position to study Protein-Protein Interactions and their role in Mechanisms of Signal Transduction using protein solution NMR and x-ray crystallography
How are signaling events transmitted from one protein to another? To answer this question we are looking to add a postdoctoral co-worker to our interdisciplinary team. Our interest is to understand protein-protein interactions, protein structure and dynamics in the context of cell signaling mechanisms, e.g. see our recent papers J.Biol.Chem. 284, 35962-72 (2009); J.Biol.Chem. 286, 26093-106 (2011); Structure 20, 41-55 (2012). The systems include several small GTPases and their interacting proteins, principally the cytoplasmic domains of plexins and of other receptors.
Research in protein biophysics/structural biology. We principally use solution NMR for protein structure determination, surface mapping and characterization of conformational change. The project may involve amide hydrogen exchange, NMR relaxation and molecular dynamics simulation as additional tools. NMR facilities at the Cleveland Center for Structural Biology consist of two 600MHz, an 800MHz and an 900MHz Bruker spectrometers all with cryoprobes. Apart from NMR, we employ other biophysical techniques including circular dichroism and fluorescence spectroscopy as well as isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC). Recently have started x-ray crystallography as a second major component to the laboratory (a Rigaku MicroMax-007 HF instrument with a 94x94mm CCD detector has recently been installed for crystal screening).
We are looking for a talented and motivated coworker, who aim to become independent researcher/project leader. Prior experience with protein NMR or x-ray crystallography is essential. The Buck laboratory provides a stimulating but friendly working environment – we are still relatively small & young, which has advantages. The Medical School of Case Western Reserve University is highly rated overall in the US (~ 16th in terms of NIH funding) and Cleveland is a pleasant but affordable place to live with excellent educational, medical and cultural institutions. Starting date, project details and salary are negotiable.

Environmental NMR Centre, Department of Chemistry, University of Toronto at Scarborough, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
This is a unique opportunity to develop a novel area of NMR spectroscopy termed Comprehensive Multiphase NMR spectroscopy (CMP NMR).
CMP NMR is a new area of NMR spectroscopy that incorporates solid-state, semi-solids (HR-MAS) and solution-state NMR (J. Magn. Reson. 2012; 217:61-76). The goal is to take samples such as tissues, plants, cells, soils etc. in their natural fully swollen state and study structure and interactions in-situ and potentially in-vivo, and do so for all the bonds present (solid, liquid or gel). The candidate will work with a range of unique hardware prototypes to study intact natural samples that have solid, gel and liquid components (samples may include plants, soils, sediments, atmospheric particles, tissue/bone etc.) thereby eliminating the need for drying or pre-treatment. This research aims to differentiate molecular structures in various natural phases and more importantly, to permit the study of the chemistry and transport between phases and across key interfaces by NMR spectroscopy for the first time. The successful candidate will have considerable opportunities to publish in a diverse range of disciplines.
The project will be carried out in close collaboration with Bruker BioSpin and will involve: 1) fundamental development of the technique and preliminary applications in a range of disciplines; and 2) development of applications in environmental chemistry. The candidate must be willing to spend time at Bruker headquarters in the U.S. assisting in building the probes as required (typically 1 month per year). At present we have number of fully working prototypes but are working on further development of new probe designs with Bruker.
Environmental applications will focus on understanding the molecular processes behind soil/sediment contamination, understanding chemical composition and layering in atmospheric particles, and understanding plant growth, metabolism and contaminant interactions. Much of the environmental work is performed in collaboration with Environment Canada, the National Water Research Institute, and the Ministry of the Environment. Therefore this represents an excellent opportunity for an open-minded NMR researcher to apply novel NMR technologies to some of the most challenging and real-world environmental problems in addition to NMR development.
The candidate must have an extremely strong background in NMR spectroscopy ideally with expertise in solid-state, HR-MAS and solution-state NMR. Expertise in one area is sufficient as long the candidate is willing and interesting in to learn all areas of NMR spectroscopy. The candidate must be open minded and willing to work with very complex environmental samples and be able to design novel pulse programs that combine aspects from solution-state and solid-state NMR. Candidates will need to draw upon and integrate a range of concepts including saturation transfer, diffusion editing, cross-polarization dynamics, relaxation filters, isotope filtering with 1-3D NMR spectroscopy to access specific key molecular interactions from within complex matrices. The candidate will have access to a range of state of-the-art equipment at the Environmental NMR center including prototype multiphase probes and hardware, as well as solid-state, HR-MAS, liquid-state, micro-imaging, and hyphenated (2D-HPLC-SPE-NMR-MS(Q-q-Tof) NMR spectrometers.
The candidate should have an interest in environmental chemistry and/or willingness to learn key issues in this field. Due to the very technical nature of the project the position is specifically suited to a gifted and open-minded NMR spectroscopist rather than an environmentalist with NMR experience. The candidate must be willing to travel and may be expected to lead visits with graduate students to the Bruker BioSpin Corporation headquarters, if required. In addition, the candidate, along with the center manager and directors, will be expected to act as a general NMR resource for graduate students, and collaborators in the Environmental NMR Center, and assist with training, data acquisition, processing and interpretation on projects as required. The Environmental NMR Center is highly collaborative and such involvement will nearly always result in the post-doctoral fellow becoming a co-author in any research in which they assisted.
Candidates should send a complete C.V. including a publication list, a one page statement outlining their suitability and their interest in the position. Candidates should arrange to have 3 references sent directly. Applications without the appropriate references have to be considered incomplete and cannot be considered.
Applications and references should be sent to

or e-mailed as a PDF attachment to [andre.simpson "at" utoronto.ca] http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~asimpson/
All applications and references will be reviewed once complete. We aim to fill the position by September 1st, 2012.
This post represents an exciting opportunity to join a multidisciplinary team using MRI to develop better mass transport models, essential for environmental risk assessment of nanoparticles. You will take a leading role in using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to quantify the transport of paramagnetic nanoparticles through porous media such as glass beads and rock. You will develop MRI pulse sequences needed for this work and undertake the MR imaging experiments. You will be based in the School of Geographical and Earth Sciences and the Glasgow Experimental MRI Centre (GEMRIC).
You will also liaise with collaborators from the University of Birmingham to assist with the development of mass transport models. You should have a strong background in NMR or MRI and experience of designing NMR or MRI pulse sequences. A Ph.D. (or soon to be awarded) is desirable. This post has initial funding for 3 years. You must take up your post sometime between August 1st 2012 and January 31st, 2013 (earlier start dates preferred).
