Research will focus on the elucidation of enzymatic mechanisms using a combination of high resolution X-ray and neutron crystallography. Interested candidates should hold a BS or MS degree and have a strong background in biochemistry, biophysics or a related discipline. Previous experience in molecular biology and protein purification is a plus.

The successful candidate will complete the graduate training program at North Carolina State University, in Raleigh, NC during their first year and will be located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the remainder of their doctoral research.

This fellowship is supported in part by an NSF IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship Program) award. The application requires US residency.

Interested candidates should submit their application at http://www.ncsu.edu/grad/applygrad.htm.
