[ccp4bb] EMBL-GSK Postdoctoral Position in Cryo-EM of Chromatin Complexes

Dear colleagues,

The Müller group at EMBL Heidelberg in collaboration with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) seeks to recruit an outstanding postdoctoral fellow to explore the use of cryo-EM to study small-molecule ligand-bound structures of chromatin complexes. The successful candidate will apply recent cryo-EM methodological developments to study epigenetic targets; develop protocols that increase throughput and support lead optimization in drug discovery projects; acquire high resolution data sets of ligand-bound chromatin complexes and other epigenetic targets.

The successful candidate holds a Ph.D. in structural biology or biochemistry. The project is particularly suitable for a postdoctoral fellow with solid previous experience in cryo-EM who is interested in utilizing and further developing cryo-EM methodology for studying epigenetic targets and visualizing small molecule ligands in the drug discovery process. The position requires exceptional motivation and commitment, the ability to work independently as well as in a team and excellent technical, organizational and management skills. A contract of 2 years, with an optional 3rd year, will be offered to the successful candidate.

Closing date for applications is 20 January 2018. Please apply online through www.embl.org/jobs

Best wishes,
Christoph Müller

Head of Structural and Computational Biology Unit
