[ccp4bb] Post-doc in membrane protein structural biology, Karolinska Institute.

Dear colleagues,

Please see the information below regarding an opening in our research group. Please share with anyone who might be interested.




A two-year post-doctoral position is available at the Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics (MBB), Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm. The project deals primarily with over-_expression_, purification, crystallisation and structure determination of human membrane proteins involved in the generation of lipid mediators of inflammation. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary research team and the position represents an opportunity for a postdoctoral scientist to develop their expertise as well as broaden their experience. The major interests of the lab are in membrane protein structure and function. We combine structural techniques such as macromolecular crystallography with biophysical, biochemical and computational methods to investigate the structural basis of catalysis. The lab has all necessary equipment and access to facilities needed for the project, including a core facility for protein science. We have periodic access to beamlines at ESRF (France), Diamond (UK), BESSY and DESY (Germany).



The candidate should hold a PhD conferred within the previous two years (or expect conferral in the near future), be motivated to independently solve problems and a have a strong background in biochemistry or structural biology. Experience with protein _expression_, purification and biochemical characterisation is required.  Prior experience in membrane protein biochemistry and computational skills such as a familiarity with the LINUX operating system will be added advantages.


The application should contain a single PDF document including:                                                                        

·       Letter of intention stating the scientific interests, technical skills, and previous experience of the candidate. 

·       CV including date and field of (expected) graduation and list of publications, with the contact information of at least two references.

This should be sent to joseph.brock@ki.se and Jesper.Haeggstrom@ki.se.

The deadline for application is the 28th of April, 2016.
