Department of Molecular and Cellular Pathology


Two positions are available from 1st January 2000 to study the structure of the
different molecular forms of human immunoglobulin A. The project will build
on the close collaboration between the two sites at UCL and Dundee, with one
researcher based at each site.

In Dundee, the work involves genetic engineering of antibodies, expression in
mammalian cell systems, isolation of different IgA species, and their biochemical
and functional analysis, all in newly refurbished laboratories in the Medical Sch.
Experience in biochemistry, immunology or a related field is required. Informal
inquiries should be addressed to Dr Jenny Woof (tel: 01382-660111 ext 33540;
email j.m.woof@dundee.ac.uk) or Professor Michael Kerr (tel: 01382-632535;
email m.a.kerr@dundee.ac.uk).

In London, a novel multidisciplinary approach based on homology modelling,
neutron and X-ray scattering, and analytical ultracentrifugation will be used to
determine medium-resolution structures for a range of different forms of IgA
antibodies. Algorithms for rapid structure determinations will be developed
using an OCTANE Workstation. Experience in bioinformatics, protein structures,
physics or a related field is required. Informal inquiries should be addressed to
Professor Steve Perkins (email steve@rfhsm.ac.uk).

Both posts are Wellcome Trust-funded for three years, with a starting salary for
the London based post of up to 22,579 pounds according to age and experience (plus
2,134 pounds London Allowance). The starting salary for the Dundee based post will
be up to 20,811 pounds. Applicants should have a PhD or shortly obtain one. 
Applications (3 copies of letter, CV, and full contact details for two referees) 
should be sent to both sites, stating clearly which post is being
applied for: Personnel Services, University of Dundee, Dundee DD1 4HN (citing
reference: EST/434/90) Ms Mila Bruger, Dept Biochemistry and Molecular Biology,
Royal Free and University College Medical School, Rowland Hill St, London NW3 2PF
(tel: 020-7830-2254 email m.bruger@rfhsm.ac.uk).

The closing date for applications is Monday, 6th December 1999.

               Working towards equal opportunity.
