Jobs in Structural Biology and Related Fields

Postdoctoral Position

IGBMC-CERBM, Strasborg, France
Application deadline: 06 Mar 2014

Postdoc position in the laboratory of Dr. Albert Weixlbaumer available at the IGBMC in Strasbourg, France.

We are inviting applications for a postdoc position, which is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Albert Weixlbaumer, team leader in the Department for Integrated Structural Biology, at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC), in Strasbourg, France.

The position is funded through an ATIP-Avenir start-up grant for a total of 3 years. The successful candidate will study the regulation of transcription elongation by protein or non-coding RNA transcription factors using a combination of biochemical and biophysical techniques. To gain detailed mechanistic insights, you will study complexes of RNA polymerase bound to regulatory factors using structural approaches (X-ray crystallography and/or single particle cryo-EM). IGBMC is one of the European INSTRUCT (Integrated Structural Biology in Europe) centers and therefore provides state of the art facilities and technology platforms that will support your project in every aspect. Further information can be found at: Team Albert Weixlbaumer

Highly motivated candidates with PhD degrees in structural biology, chemical biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, or related fields are encouraged to apply. Applications including a cover letter outlining research interests, CV, list of publications, and names of three references should be sent via e-mail to Dr. Albert Weixlbaumer:
