Postdoc position in Protein NMR Spectroscopy

University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark
Application deadline: 08 Apr 2013

A post-doctoral position for one year with the possibility of extension for another year is available immediately at the Department of Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University, Denmark in the group of Associate Professor Dr. Frans A.A. Mulder.

Project and Tasks
The group develops NMR spectroscopy methods for the study of proteins, with an emphasis on the integrative analysis of their structure, dynamics and electrostatics in relation to function. They focus on enzymes, protein-protein interactions and studies of intrinsically disordered proteins in relation to cellular function and disease. To overcome the challenges that these systems pose they are looking for a knowledgeable and creative person. It is expected that the successful candidate will independently manage the development, implementation of NMR experiments and data analysis, as well as collaborate with other groups in local and international collaborations.

Scientific Surroundings
The Protein NMR Laboratory offers a stimulating research environment, covering complementary research activities in the area of liquid state NMR, oriented and MAS solid state NMR, pulse sequence development, low-field NMR and imaging. The lab is currently equipped with three highly flexible instruments for liquid and solid-state applications operating at 700 MHz, 500 MHz, and 400 MHz. In 2013 a new state-of-the-art 950 MHz spectrometer will be installed, which will be the highest field NMR magnet in Scandinavia. The BioNMR research is embedded within the Center for Insoluble Protein Structures (inSPIN;, the Department of Chemistry ( and the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO; These laboratories provide abundant complementary and state-of-the-art techniques in structural and molecular biology, nanoscience and technology.

Aarhus University further provides a strong international research and training environment with excellent professional and private conditions. Foreign employees can get help and information from the AU International Center ( and Work in Denmark (

Qualifications and Conditions of Employment
