A position is available for a Ph.D. student to work in protein biochemistry and molecular biology. The hosting place is the Proteolysis Lab of the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB) from the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) in Barcelona (Spain). The IBMB is located within the premises of the Barcelona Science Park (PCB), one of the major poles for excellence in research in the Barcelona area.
The candidate must be extremely self-motivated and dedicated, be able to work very hard independently but also to synergetically interact with other lab members, and have previous experience in protein biochemistry and molecular biology. A Master degree will be an added value. Tasks will include cloning, overexpression, and purification of proteins, as well as functional assays.
Funding for three years is provided by a FPI fellowship from the Spanish Ministry for Economy and Competitivity.
Interested persons should apply exclusively per e-mail and send a detailed CV, as well as a covering letter including motivation and contact details of two referees to F. Xavier Gomis-Rüth (email@example.com). Closing date is September 6, 2013. Preselected candidates will have to apply online for the fellowship.
