Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the Das Lab, 
Department of Chemistry, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA. The 
position requires the applicant to work on  structural and biochemical 
characterization of ubiquitin hydrolases (deubiquitinases) and their complexes 
with substrates, cofactors and inhibitors (see Boudreaux et al, PNAS, 107, 9117 
(2010)). The applicant is also expected to work on an ongoing collaborative 
project on method development related to imaging of protein crystals (of 
ubiquitin hydrolases and others) using second order non-linear optical methods.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates with extensive experience in 
biochemical studies, crystallization and structure determination of proteins by 
x-ray crystallography. Specifically, the candidate is required to have hands-on 
experience with protein purification, crystallization, X-ray data collection, 
structure determination and structural analysis. 

Applicants should send their CV and the names and contact information of at 
least three references via email to:
