A position is available for an outstanding structural biologist to join the research group of Dr Maruf Ali, Department of Life Sciences at Imperial College London. The successful candidate will join a team of researchers investigating structure and mechanism of molecular chaperone complexes involved in protein homeostasis and stress signaling. Methodology will include cryo-electron microscopy (EM) and a suite of biophysical, biochemical and cellular assays to determine structure and function. The position is funded by Cancer Research UK.
The successful candidate will be expected to take a leading role in studying molecular chaperone complexes that regulate protein homeostasis and stress signalling. Structure and functional studies will be undertaken with an emphasis on taking advantage of the recent resolution revolution in cryo-EM. At times, you will mentor junior biochemists/structural biologists in our research team. The successful candidate will join the world-leading Departments of Life Sciences and Centre for Structural Biology here at Imperial College. We are superbly equipped for undertaking cryo-EM with three screening microscopes and a Tecnai F20 with direct electron detector. Routine Titan Krios data collection is available through Block Allocation Group (BAG) access to the Electron Bio-Imaging Centre (eBIC, Diamond) and the LonCEM consortium (Crick Institute, Autumn 2019).
