Postdoctoral Research Associate: Evolution of the Protein-Protein
An NIH-funded 2 year postdoctoral research position is available for a
collaborative project involving the research groups of Dietlind Gerloff
(http://users.soe.ucsc.edu/~gerloff/), Seth Rubin
(http://www.chem.ucsc.edu/~srubin/RubinLab/Home.html), and David
Liberles (http://www.wyomingbioinformatics.org/LiberlesGroup/). The
position may be extended beyond 2 years if additional funding is
available. The researcher will be expected to share time between the
Gerloff and Liberles Groups. It is expected that the candidate will be
available to start within 3 months.
The research project involves initial computational comparative
analysis of sequences in a protein structural and biophysical context
using novel phylogenetic methods to predict changes in protein-protein
interactions between closely related species. This work will proceed in
the groups of Gerloff and Liberles. Predicted interaction changes will
then be tested experimentally in the Rubin Research Group.
