seeking organic chemist experienced with organometallic chemistry (Cambridge (MIT))
I am seeking an Organic Chemist with at least 5 years of experience with organo-metallic chemistry, in particular familiar with organoiron compounds and strongly magnetic organic compounds with ferromagnetic iron within, capable of binding to proteins, peptides, DNA and RNA.
This is a short-term assignment involving several meetings to discuss the compounds and their preparation. The aim of this research is to tag peptides, proteins, DNA and RNA with organo-iron ligands/conjugates thus rendering the macromolecules magnetic and susceptible to directed flow in a magnetic field.
If interested, please reply with a copy of your resume or CV. We will be scheduling interviews for the next 1-2 weeks. We are especially interested in ferrocene-like compounds, polycarbonyl-iron compounds, and other ferro-organo-metallic compounds capable of reacting with the free functional groups present on proteins such as carboxylic, amino, hydroxyl, imido groups to form a covalent bond of the organo-metallic conjugate to the protein.Hourly rate for this consultation? $20 an hour. Yeeeeeaaaaaahhh, baby.
[Thanks to all my friends, I realize now what a rip-off this is.]
