A highly motivated postdoctoral researcher is sought to work on a BBSRC funded position in the laboratory of Dr Rivka Isaacson in the Department of Chemistry.
Research in the Isaacson group utilises biophysical techniques to answer important biological questions by characterising macromolecular structure and interactions. In this project we will use NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, Electron Microscopy, Isothermal Titration Calorimetry and other methods to characterise chaperone proteins that control a gene expression transition in bacteria - with potential implications for managing 'hospital superbugs'. The successful candidate will be a skilled biophysicist and structural biologist who is self-motivated, highly organised and works well as part of a team. Applicants should have completed a PhD or have submitted a thesis, in chemistry, biochemistry or a related field. Experience in at least one major structural biology technique, and enthusiasm to learn others, is essential.
