A Wellcome Trust funded postdoctoral position is available in Jeyapraksh (JP) Arulanandam’s lab at the Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology, University of Edinburgh. The JP lab (http://jeyaprakash.ed.ac.uk) aims to understand the structural level mechanistic details of processes regulating error-free chromosome segregation. The successful candidate will combine protein biochemistry and structural biology with mammalian cell based assays to dissect the molecular details of how specific intermolecular protein interactions achieve stable centromere maintenance and accurate chromosome segregation during cell division.
Applicants must have a PhD (or will shortly be awarded a PhD) with training in biochemistry and structural biology. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual with an outstanding academic track record, good communication skills and the ability to work as a team. Applicants with experience in single particle cryoEM and biochemistry are encouraged to apply.
The post is for 24 months in the first instance with a possibility of extension.
Closing Date: 01Dec 2017 at 5pm GMT
