We currently have a new postdoc position open for a recent graduate (will graduate by September of this year or within 1 year of obtaining their PhD) in lipid research in the Department of Biological Chemistry and Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. There are two projects on which the new postdoc could participate. The first project, focuses on the enzymology and SAR studies of DGKs. The second involves the role of lipid metabolizing enzymes in the mammalian nervous system (CNS). These studies involve active collaborations with people in the departments of Neuroscience and Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry.

For more information, contact Dan Raben at draben@jhmi.edu. If anyone is going to the ASBMB meeting in San Diego, we could arrange a meeting there as well.
