The lab of Chuck Sanders at Vanderbilt University has openings for PhD-level staff and/or postdoctoral fellows to conduct studies of disease-related membrane protein structure, folding, and function.

Proteins under study include the human amyloid precursor protein (Alzheimer’s disease), peripheral myelin protein 22 (Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease), integrins (kidney failure), the HERG and KCNQ1 potassium channels (cardiac arrhythmias), and diacylglycerol kinase (see Van Horn et al. SCIENCE 324, 1726-1729 (2009). Please find more information about the projectes here.

While some projects involve much NMR spectroscopy, other projects are more biochemically focused. There are also opportunities to carry out X-ray crystallographic studies through our collaboration with Prof. Tina Iverson and computational studies through our collaboration with Prof. Jens Meiler.

Candidates should have an interest in working with integral membrane proteins. The Vanderbilt Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy Laboratory will soon install a 900 MHz instrument to complement current instrumentation.
