[ccp4bb] Research Associate position - Cambridge, UK
A postdoctoral position is available in the group of Prof. Luca Pellegrini in the Department of Biochemistry of the
University of Cambridge, to work on the role of the synaptonemal complex in establishing the functional
architecture of homologous chromosomes in meiosis, which is essential for correct chromosome pairing and
genetic recombination (Syrjanen et al, eLife, 2017; Syrjanen et al, eLife, 2014). A multi-disciplinary approach
involving biochemical and biophysical experiments will be used to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of
synaptonemal complex assembly on the meiotic chromosome axis. The ultimate goal of the project is to achieve
the biochemical reconstitution and structural analysis of meiotic chromosome organisation from purified protein
Successful candidates will hold or about to be awarded a PhD in Biochemistry, Biophysics or Molecular Biology
and must be able to demonstrate a proven track record in conducting internationally-competitive research. Most
of all, they must be exceptionally enthusiastic and motivated to succeed in fundamental research.
Applicants should submit a CV with list of relevant publications, a cover letter explaining why they are suitable
for the position and contact information for two referees.
