Jobs in Structural Biology and Related Fields

Postdoctoral Position

Birkbeck, University of London, London, United Kingdom
Application deadline: 10 Nov 2013

A postdoctoral position is available in the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology to undertake structural analysis of complexes of the molecular chaperone Hsp90. The position is funded by the BBSRC for two years and 5 months within the group of Cara Vaughan.

The researcher will be involved in all aspects of the project, from assembling complexes to determination of structure using both protein crystallography and single particle electron microscopy. The project would suit a highly motivated scientist interested in the molecular mechanisms of protein folding, cancer biology and structural biology.

Applicants must have at least a PhD in structural molecular biology with experience in protein crystallography or single particle electron microscopy, and a track record of peer-reviewed publications. Experience of eukaryotic multi-protein complex expression and purification will be an advantage.

The post is available from January 2014.  Informal enquires may be made to Cara Vaughan ( Formal applications must be made via the website, (search using reference number 11148) must be submitted before 10 November 2013.
