The MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology is one of the birthplaces of molecular biology and is an internationally renowned centre for fundamental biomedical research.

The LMB has a strong track record in training Postdoctoral Fellows who have gone on to become leading Scientists. We also have an excellent record of innovative basic research leading to applications in medicine. Scientists are drawn to the LMB from all over the world, thus creating a lively and international community for the exchange of ideas and technical innovation. Following our move to a new laboratory in 2013, we are able to provide state-of-the-art facilities in which innovative medical research, translation and collaboration can flourish.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Scientist position in the group of Dr Ingo Greger to study synaptic glutamate receptor complexes using cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM).

This project builds on our recent cryo-EM work on heteromeric AMPA-type glutamate receptors (Herguedas et al., Science 2016; Herguedas et al., Science 2019). Candidates should have a PhD and experience with cryo-EM; expertise in membrane protein biochemistry would be greatly advantageous.
