Jobs in Structural Biology and Related Fields

Postdoctoral Position

Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium
Application deadline: 10 Jan 2014

A postdoctoral Research position is immediately available for structure-function studies of plant proteins that control signaling during oxidative stress. Fellows will join an exciting research environment of the Messens VIB-laboratory in the Structural Biology Research Center in Brussels. The Messens laboratory is recognized as a world leader in the redox field, and the lab provides an outstanding position in protein biochemistry and structure, in a highly dynamic and team-oriented research group. Successful candidates will work on the FWO-project ‘The ROS-wave in plants: signaling along the sulfenome’ in collaboration with the Van Breusegem VIB-lab at Ugent, specialized in redox stress in plants. In this cutting-edge research environment of both labs, you will tackle essential biological problems in plant redox signaling. 

Applicants should have obtained a PhD in the last 5 years. Expertise with protein biochemistry and structural biology is essential. Knowledge of biophysical techniques and enzymology is an asset. 

Please send a cover letter discussing your interests in the laboratory and the project as well as your CV and list of 3 individuals as references to
