Jobs in Structural Biology and Related Fields

Postdoctoral Position

Medical Research Council (MRC), London, United Kingdom
Application deadline: 10 Dec 2013

A Postdoc position is available in the Division of Molecular Structure at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research in London. The position is in the Gamblin lab and will be focused on the characterisation of chromatin modification enzymes implicated in epigenetic regulation. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to learn and apply a range of techniques in protein chemistry, biophysics and structural biology (principally X-Ray crystallography).

Candidates should have a PhD or be in the final stages of obtaining a PhD degree in Structural Biology or a related discipline. A background in recombinant protein expression and basic skills in molecular biology and protein purification are required. In addition a basic knowledge of general structural biology techniques, enzymology and biophysics are essential.

Experience working with eukaryotic multi-protein complexes would be an advantage. Enthusiastic candidates with a solid track record of academic achievements are encouraged to apply with a cover letter, a full curriculum vitae and the contact information of at least two references.
