Postdoctoral opening in structural biology (protein crystallography and drug discovery) at KU Leuven, Belgium
There is an opening for a PhD level structural biologist (postdoc / senior postdoc) in my laboratory
(http://pharm.kuleuven.be/Biocrystallography). KU Leuven, ranked the 35th best university world-wide,
is a major node of biomedical research in Flanders, situated within a short drive from Brussels.
We are looking for candidates with a strong interest and track record in structural biology
(especially X-ray crystallography) and new drug discovery. A thorough command of crystallographic
computing, structural bioinformatics and/or rational drug design as well as ability to guide PhD
students are expected.
Please address further questions and submit your detailed CV (including a full publication list and
contact details of persons who could provide a recommendation) to email@example.com,
as soon as possible and before August 21.
Strong candidates will be invited to prepare an application towards the Maria Sklodowska-Curie
European Fellowship (IF) and/or internal KU Leuven postdoctoral fellowship, both before a September 14
deadline. This will include writing a research proposal in a close collaboration with us as host laboratory.
The overall topic should normally revolve around the structure-based drug design for several targets
that we are working on, in accordance with particular research interests of the candidate.
