A postdoctoral position is available to study the structural basis of how different polyubiquitin modifications are used as distinct cellular signals. Using X-ray crystallography and other structural methods you will study the molecular mechanisms underlying the decoding of different ubiquitin signals and how signalling enzymes are regulated by ubiquitylation. Broadly, the lab uses an interdisciplinary approach to understand the underlying biochemical and structural mechanisms in ubiquitin signalling, ultimately to discover new signalling nodes and pathways regulated by different ubiquitin modifications. I am looking for an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual with experience in protein crystallography. You should have a PhD in a relevant subject and a desire to understand mechanisms of signal transduction and regulation by post translational modifications.
This position is available for 3 years and the salary will be on the University of Dundee Grade 7 scale (£29,541 - £36,298). To apply for this position please visit: http://www.lifesci.dundee.ac.uk/vacancies
