The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) is committed to attract and nurture the development of young talented independent investigators in our unique environment. With this call we wish to recruit a Group Leader to become part of our Protein Structure and Function Program.
The Protein Structure and Function Program is a founding member of the Integrative Structural Biology Cluster (ISBUC) at the University of Copenhagen, and it currently consists of two research groups led by Professor Guillermo Montoya and Associate Professor Nicholas Taylor. The program also coordinates the Center´s protein production, molecular biophysics and crystallization platforms and the University of Copenhagen node of the national cryoEM facility, which is equipped with a Titan Krios and a Glacios, both equipped with Falcon 3EC direct electron detectors. Large computer power is available through our partnership with the Danish Supercomputer for Life Sciences. In addition, the Copenhagen area provides easy access to the synchrotrons in Hamburg (DESY) and Lund (MAX-IV) as well as the European XFEL (Hamburg).
They are looking for strong candidates that would develop and lead an independent, innovative research group investigating game changer questions in biology at a molecular level. They seek for applicants in the area of integrative structural biology using and/or combining cryo-electron microscopy (including cryo-electron tomography), crystallography and biophysical approaches towards the mechanistic understanding of cellular processes. The ideal candidate should be complementary to the current interests and analytical expertise in the Protein Structure and Function Program and with a high potential to integrate within the other CPR programs through interdisciplinary projects. Applications will be reviewed during the application time.
