Hi, any ambitious membrane protein researchers, please read about the 
vacancy below.  Thanks, phx

We are seeking a Principal Investigator to lead the Integral Membrane 
Protein (IMP) group of the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), Oxford.  

The SGC is a charity organization that includes ~200 researchers in 
laboratories in the universities of Oxford, Toronto and the Karolinska 
Institute.  Our goal, successfully pursued since 2004, is to solve 
structures of medically relevant human proteins and deposit them 
immediately in public databases.  We further exploit our target proteins 
in downstream studies with special emphasis on Chemical Biology, using 
both our in-house infrastructure and a network of collaborators.

In the last year, our efforts have expanded to human integral membrane 
proteins.  The present PI of the IMP group is leaving, and we are 
seeking a replacement with demonstrated experience and publication 
record in structural biology of membrane proteins.  The IMP group 
comprises ~8 people, and is additionally supported by the SGC's 
extensive infrastructure, with close collaborations with molecular 
biologists, crystallographers, biophysicists and informaticians in the 
other groups.  Currently funded until 2011, the post offers an 
unrivalled opportunity to develop a strong research program and a 
reputation as a group leader.
