The laboratory of Dr. Chris Yengo in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology at the Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, Pennsylvania has a postdoctoral position available immediately to study the structural dynamics of cardiac muscle myosin using spectroscopic, transient kinetic, and biophysical methods. Experience with transient kinetics and/or time resolved fluorescence spectroscopy and/or embryonic stem cells is highly desirable. A Ph.D. degree (or equivalent) with an excellent background and research experience in molecular biology, protein purification, and structure/function studies is also desirable. The Yengo laboratory is well equipped for biochemical, biophysical, and cell biological studies and includes a stopped-flow, time resolved fluorescence spectrofluorimeter, microcalorimeter, Octet QK system, and TIRF microscope. The Department has outstanding core facilities including a confocal microscope with live cell and deconvolution capability and plans to purchase a new live cell TIRF microscope with FRET and FRAP capability.
