A 2.5 year ERC funded post-doctoral position is currently available in the group of Bert Janssen on a structural biology project concerning communication between cells in our nervous system.
You will use modern tools in structural biology; X-ray and cryo-EM, as well as biochemical, biophysical and cell biological techniques to characterize ligand receptor complexes that play a role in adhesion and intercellular signalling in our nervous system.
The lab is well-equipped to produce and study mammalian (membrane) proteins and is part of the Bijvoet Center for Biomolecular Research at Utrecht University. The Bijvoet Center is a dynamic hub of structural biology and provides access to excellent infrastructure and training.
We are looking for a highly motivated and talented researcher with a strong background in structural biology and/or biochemistry who is keen in working in an ambitious and multidisciplinary research team. Experience with cryo-EM will be considered a plus. Intended start date is flexible but preferably before 2018.
Candidates should send their CV, motivation letter and contact details of three references to email@example.com before Monday 19 June 2017.
Dr. Bert Janssen
