Postdoctoral position in protein design
A position is available for a postdoctoral researcher to work on a project aimed at the incorporation of non-natural amino acids into proteins through a microbial _expression_ system. The hosting place is the Proteolysis Lab of the Structural Biology Unit (SBU) from the Spanish Research Council (CSIC) in Barcelona (Spain). The SBU is a "María-de-Maeztu" Unit of Excellence of the Spanish Ministry for Economy and Competitiveness. It is part of the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB), which is located within the premises of the Barcelona Science Park (PCB), a major pole for excellence in research in biomedicine of the Barcelona area.
The candidate must be extremely self-motivated and dedicated, be able to work very hard independently but also to synergetically interact with other lab members, and have previous experience in molecular biology, biochemistry and microbiology. The project does not require skills in structural biochemistry.
The position is scheduled for immediate start and currently funded for maximally 2 years, although it may be extended if new funds become available.
Interested persons should apply exclusively per e-mail as soon as possible and send a detailed CV, a covering letter including motivation and contact details of two referees to F. Xavier Gomis-Rüth (email@example.com). The position will remain open until filled.
