Postdoctoral position available

in Bioinorganic Chemistry of Oxidases, Oxygenases and Peroxidases at Department of Chemical Sciences, TIFR, Mumbai, India

Our laboratory has immediate post-doctoral openings in various areas of bioinorganic chemistry, namely, oxidases (cytochrome oxidase and related enzymes), oxygenases (cytochrome P450) and peroxidases (HRP, LPO etc). The projects would involve biochemical extraction, purification and also site-directed mutagenesis of the enzymes. The following main techniques are used for our studes: high-resolution NMR, fluorescence, CD, direct electrochemistry and stopped-flow kinetics.

Candidates must hold a recent (less than two years) Ph.D. degree in chemistry, biochemistry or related discipline. A strong background in bioinorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, molecular biology, biochemistry, or biophysics is desirable. Expertise with recombinant DNA techniques, protein/RNA purification, enzymology/kinetics, NMR, UV/VIS, fluorescence spectroscopy, CD, and/or stopped flow is desirable. Please send a curriculum vitae and names, FAX numbers and e-mail addresses of three references to:
