Postdoctoral Position Available in Biological Solid-State NMR

Postdoctoral positions are available in membrane protein and biomolecular solid-state NMR in the laboratory of Mei Hong at Iowa State University. We seek enthusiastic and motivated researchers with research experience in solid-state NMR or protein solution NMR. Familiarity with protein biochemistry or membrane biophysics is desirable. The laboratory has full use of a 400 MHz solid-state NMR and significant access to 600 MHz and 700 MHz solid-state NMR spectrometers. Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae (including a list of publications), a past research description (no more than one page), and the names and contact information of three references to Mei Hong, at the Department of Chemistry, Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011. 


"Spectral editing helps the assignment of protein resonance"

Keith won the Laura Marinelli award of 2012 Rocky Mountain Conference for presenting the poster on spectral editing for protein resonance assignments. 

Congratulations keith! 

"Iowa State, Ames Lab chemists discover proton mechanism used by flu virus to infect cells"

Fanghao's research on the proton conduction mechanism in M2 is published in Science. See and the ISU News Release:

Congratulations Fanghao!

"The Future Is In Good Hands"

Marilu gave a talk at the ACS Scholar's Symposium on plant cell wall NMR, and was featured in the April 26 issue of C&EN

Congratulations Marilu! 

"Iowa State, Ames Lab chemists discover how antiviral drugs bind to and block flu virus"

Sarah's Nature article on the amantadine binding site of M2 was featured in News of the Week in the Feb 8, 2010 issue of C&EN and in Eureka Alert  

Congratulations Sarah!
