Postdoc position in Structural Biology at University of Bayreuth

We are currently looking for a highly motivated postdoc for our laboratory at the Dept. of Biochemistry at University Bayreuth, Germany. Our work involves biochemical and structural studies on cellular signalling systems with relevance to aging mechanisms and aging-related diseases. Research projects will focus on biochemical and structural studies on either cyclic nucleotide signalling or deacylases of the Sirtuin family (for related publications, see JMB 382, 790-801; PNAS 105, 5705-9; PNAS 105, 15720-5; JMB 362, 623-39; NSMB 12, 32-7).

The ideal candidate is highly self-motivated, with a strong background in protein biochemistry and protein crystallography. Experience in standard molecular biology techniques and in the basics of managing a scientific project is expected.

We offer excellent research opportunities and a stimulating environment for structural biology. Our laboratory is located in a new building at the University of Bayreuth and equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories for protein biochemistry, x-ray crystallography, and mass spectrometry.

Applications (including CV with publication list, research experience, PhD certificate, transcripts, and two names and contact information for references) should be sent as PDF or by mail to
