Postdoctoral position in Structure and Function of Fungal Membrane Proteins
A post-doctoral position is available in the research group of Associate Prof. Maike Bublitz at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Oxford. The project aims to understand the structure and function of fungal membrane transport proteins identified as potential new drug targets, using a combination of state-of-the-art structural (X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM) and biochemical/biophysical techniques.
Applicants should hold a PhD in a relevant subject area, such as membrane protein biochemistry or structural biology. Experience in native or recombinant membrane protein _expression_, purification and either structural determination or functional analysis using biochemical and biophysical techniques is essential. Ability to work in a team as well as contribute to supervision activities and excellent verbal and written communication skills are expected. Experience in protein X-ray crystallography and/or cryo-EM is an advantage.
