Postdoctoral position in Structure and Function of Sugar Transporting Membrane Proteins
We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated postdoc with an interest in working on sugar transporting membrane transporters and with a proven track record in the area of structural and/or functional analysis of membrane proteins. The position is funded from the ERC intially as a one year position. An extension can be possible for up to a total maximum of 4 years employment as a postdoc. The position will be open from fall 2017.
The position seeks to strengthen ongoing activities in the laboratory of Assistant Professor Bjørn Panyella Pedersen, related to the function and mechanism of sugar-transporting membrane proteins (mbg.au.dk/bpp). For further details on the position, please contact Bjørn P Pedersen (email@example.com).
A successful candidate has a relevant Ph.D. degree and a solid and documented background in structural biology, biochemistry and/or biophysics. Experience with membrane protein _expression_ and purification, in particular from S. cereviciae is favored, and the candidate must demonstrate an ability and interest to work with membrane proteins with a structural aim. Finally, applicants should be ambitious, show strong collaborative skills, and should also be able to take initiatives and responsibility within the work environment.
