[ccp4bb] Postdoctoral position in Structure and Function of Bacterial Membrane Proteins (Montreal, Canada)

A postdoctoral position is open in my lab at the Institut Armand-Frappier in Montreal. Please see details below for more information:

Postdoctoral Fellowship in Structure and Function of Bacterial Membrane Proteins


Project description: A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the research group of Assistant Prof. Charles Calmettes at the Centre INRS-Institut Armand Frappier in Laval (Greater Montreal, Canada) to work on a joint research project with the group of Dr. Hilde de Reuse at the Institut Pasteur (Paris, France). For this position we are looking for a talented, highly skilled, and motivated postdoc with a proven track record in the areas of structural and functional analysis of membrane proteins. The successful candidate is expected to dissect the structure and function of bacterial metal transporters identified as targets of current antibiotics molecules, using a combination of X-ray crystallography and biochemical techniques.


The applicant must have a PhD in a relevant field, such as membrane protein biochemistry or structural biology. Preference will be given to candidate with membrane protein _expression_ and purification skills, and with a solid knowledge in protein characterization and biophysical methods. Experience in X-ray crystallography is preferred but not mandatory. The applicant will be an enthusiastic scientist who demonstrates excellence, creativity, commitment to research, and effective communication skills. The Centre INRS-Institut Armand Frappier offers a French/English bilingual environment.


Starting date: Review of applications begins immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Send your CV and a cover letter in PDF to Charles.calmettes@iaf.inrs.ca. Successful candidates will be notified for interviews. Anticipated  starting date is January 2018, or early 2018.
