[Expired] Post-doc at Northwestern: Characterization of Metalloenzymes and Bioinorganic Model Complexes by ENDOR Spectroscopy
Join us in determining the mechanisms of catalysis by metalloenzymes through the development and implementation of electron-nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy: The ENDOR and DFT characterization of key trapped catalytic and photogenerated intermediates reveals mechanism, with synthetic biomimetic complexes providing key constraints!
Among the array of projects reflected in recent publications are ongoing studies of multiple central issues at the intersections of Inorganic Chemistry/Biochemistry/Biology
Parallel studies of synthetic, biomimetic complexes provide constraints that help identify intermediates trapped during catalysis, and that are moreover of intrinsic importance as Jahn-Teller active systems that exhibit novel dynamic properties.
Selected recent publication illustrating these projects and exemplifying our approach can be found at the Northwestern Chemistry Department core-faculty website
Northwestern University is located on the shore of Lake Michigan. It is the first suburb to the north of Chicago, whose attractions are easily reached by auto or rapid transit.
Valued backgrounds include: Magnetic Resonance (EPR/ENDOR/ESEEM, etc); Biochemistry; Computational Chemistry.
