Betreff: [ccpem] Postdoctoral position in cryo-EM of membrane protein complexes at PSI
Antwort an: "Korkhov Volodymyr (PSI)" <volodymyr.korkhov@PSI.CH>

A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Prof. Volodymyr M. Korkhov at Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and ETH Zurich, to work on structure and function of membrane-associated signal transduction complexes using electron cryo-microscopy (cryo-EM) and single particle analysis.

The successful candidate will have expertise and a track record in cryo-EM and single particle analysis. The candidate will be experienced in molecular biology, including cloning, heterologous protein _expression_ and purification. Previous experience with biochemistry of membrane proteins will be an advantage but not a prerequisite. The candidate will be able to work independently and will have excellent teamwork and communication skills.

The Korkhov group is integrated into the Laboratory of Biomolecular Research at PSI and has full access to all facilities and instruments for protein _expression_, purification, biochemical and biophysical analysis. In addition, the group benefits access to the PSI crystallization facility and the Swiss Light Source synchrotron radiation facility. The group benefits from the in-house 200 kV screening transmission electron microscope (JEOL JEM2200), planned to be upgraded with a direct electron detector. Furthermore, the group has full access to all research facilities at ETH Zurich, including the K2 and Falcon II direct detector-equipped Titan Krios microscope at the ETH Scientific Centre for Optical and Electron Microscopy (ScopeM).

Working at PSI provides many benefits, including integration into the PSI/ETH Zurich scientific community, high standard of living and a competitive salary. This position is offered for one year initially, and is extendable to up to four years. The candidate will be expected to obtain a postdoctoral mobility fellowship within the first year.

For informal enquiries or to apply for this position the interested candidates should send an e-mail to volodymyr.korkhov@psi.ch. The application should include a cover letter describing the candidate`s research interests and motivation to apply, the CV and list of publications, and contact details of three referees.
