    STRUCTURAL STUDIES OF MUSCLE REGULATORY PROTEINS IN HEALTH AND DISEASE

    A Postdoctoral Research Fellow is sought to carry out Molecular Dynamics simulations of troponin and tropomyosin on actin filament complexes associated with cardiac and skeletal muscle thin filaments. The objective is to investigate the molecular mechanisms of regulation of cardiac and skeletal muscle contraction, and, in particular, the structural underpinnings of mutations leading to skeletal muscle disease and cardiomyopathies.

    Required Skills

    Applicants must have several years of experience in carrying out molecular dynamics simulations of complex macromolecular systems and first-rate facility with Linux operating systems, Matlab software and macromolecular visualization programs. A strong background in Physical Chemistry and Protein Biochemistry is also required. Experience in supervising graduate students and postdoctoral fellows would also be important.

    Interested applicants should send their CV with three references to:

    Dr. William Lehman

    Professor of Physiology & Biophysics
