Postdoctoral Position

Horseshoe Crab Molecular Biology/Biochemistry

Delaware Biotechnology Institute, University of Delaware

In recent years, numerous horseshoe crabs have been used as bait by
fisheries of the Mid-Atlantic and Eastern seaboard because they
produce a potent proteinaceous attractant of eels and conch. Not only
is this leading to the demise of an ancient arthropod, but it has
severe ecological impacts on migratory bird populations that depend
on the lipid-rich eggs of the horseshoe crab as a food source. To
circumvent this problem, the successful candidate will purify the
attractant from horseshoe crab and engineer its production in a
heterologous system. Work will be carried out in the laboratory of
Dr. Pam Green at DBI in collaboration with Dr. Nancy Targett=92s lab at
the College of Marine Studies. The Targett lab will conduct bioassays
and incorporate the attractant into artificial bait. In addition to
helping to save the horseshoe crab from endangerment, this project
should help elucidate the attractant=92s mode of action and contribute
to our horseshoe crab genomic efforts. Candidates should be highly
motivated and have demonstrated achievements in protein or peptide
biochemistry in any system. Expertise in molecular biology would be
an advantage but is not required. Please send a letter of interest
including the words horseshoe crab in the E-mail subject line, your
CV, and the names and contact information for three references to Dr.
