[ccp4bb] Group Leader position available in Structural Biology at EMBL Grenoble, France

Group Leader in Structural Biology at EMBL Grenoble, France

Application closing date: 8 October 2017.
Interviews are planned for December 2017.

A pdf of the advert is attached. Feel free to display it in your Institute.

The appointed Group Leader will be an ambitious structural or structural-cell biologist with an original research programme on structure-function relationships of macromolecular complexes in eukaryotic systems. He/she will benefit from the world-class environment offered by the inter-institutional Partnership for Structural Biology (EMBL, ESRF, ILL, IBS, http://www.psb-grenoble.fr) which provides access to state-of-the-art instrumentation including the recently upgraded ESRF synchrotron X-ray beamlines for MX and SAXS, cryo-EM (Polara/K2, Titan Krios/K2), high-field NMR (600-950 MHz spectrometers), the ILL neutron scattering beamlines and a biophysics platform. He/she will also have direct access to in-house bacterial, insect and mammalian cell expression facilities, confocal microscopy and high-throughput crystallization platforms for soluble and membrane proteins. We are particularly interested in candidates who will make use of local opportunities in advanced X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM and/or are interested in structural-cell biology e.g. cryo-electron tomography, super-resolution microscopy and correlative light and electron microscopy. Existing groups at EMBL Grenoble focus their research on protein-nucleic acid complexes involved in transcription, epigenetics, RNA metabolism, RNA virus replication and host-pathogen interactions.

Applicants should have a PhD, at least 3 years post-doctoral experience and a strong record of achievement in structural, molecular or cell biology. An initial contract of 5 years will be offered to the successful candidate. This is foreseen to be extended to a maximum of 9 years, subject to an external review

Further information about this position can be obtained from the Head of EMBL Grenoble, Stephen Cusack (cusack@embl.fr).
