We are recruiting a Postdoctoral Scientist, with experience in structural biology of protein-nucleic acid complexes, to join the research group led by Associate Professor Wyatt Yue at the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), University of Oxford.
In collaboration with Precision Biosciences Inc, the group is launching a project, funded by a Wellcome Trust Pathfinder award, on structure-based engineering of meganucleases for therapeutic genome editing in trinucleotide repeat disorders.
You will hold a PhD (or be near completion) in protein biochemistry or structural biology, have experience in purification, crystallization and structure determination of protein-nucleic acid complexes, and be able to work as part of a team interacting with industrial scientists. This is a full-time post offered for a fixed-term of 18 months in the first instance.
Further particulars, including details on how to apply and links to further information, can be accessed online:
Closing date: 12:00 noon (UK) on 13 July 2017 (Thursday next week)
