[ccp4bb] ERC funded postdoc position - Cryo-EM of complexes involved in gene expression



Dear members of the structural biology community,

I am looking for postdoctoral researchers interested to do single particle Cryo-EM on complexes involved in gene expression. The position will be funded through an ERC starting grant and I would be grateful if you could bring the following ad to the attention of potential candidates.

Thanks, Albert

 
Postdoc position in the laboratory of Albert Weixlbaumer available at the IGBMC in Strasbourg, France.

We are inviting applications for a postdoc position, which is available in the laboratory of Albert Weixlbaumer, PI in the Department of Integrated Structural Biology, at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC), in Strasbourg, France.
The position is funded through an ERC starting grant for several years. The successful candidate will study the regulation of transcription elongation by protein or non-coding RNA transcription factors using a combination of biochemical and biophysical techniques. To gain detailed mechanistic insights, you will study complexes of RNA polymerase bound to regulatory factors using structural approaches (mostly single particle cryo-EM). IGBMC is one of the European INSTRUCT (Integrated Structural Biology in Europe) centers and therefore provides state of the art facilities (Titan KRIOS with K2 direct electron detector) and technology platforms that will support your project in every aspect. Further information can be found at: http://www.igbmc.fr/research/department/3/team/119/

Highly motivated candidates with PhD degrees in structural biology, chemical biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, or related fields are encouraged to apply. Although not strictly required, preference will be given to candidates with prior experience in single particle Cryo-EM. Applications including a cover letter outlining research interests, CV, list of publications, and names of three references should be sent via e-mail to Albert Weixlbaumer: Albert.Weixlbaumer@igbmc.fr
