[ccp4bb] Two permanent positions in structural biology (London)

Two permanent positions in structural biology are available at the NPL (National Physical Laboratory) in the BioMetrology group. 

The BioMetrology group within the NPL has expertise in high-resolution measurements including protein crystallography, cryo-EM, 4D (spatial and temporal) high-resolution microscopy and spectroscopy, and biophysical characterisation such ITC and SPR.

Position 1: Higher Research Scientist

We wish to recruit a highly motivated PhD-level scientist (or equivalent experience) to help on the development of structural biology capabilities addressing the challenges of membrane proteins as drug targets, antimicrobial discovery and synthetic biology.  The candidate will be involved in structural biology projects using x-ray crystallography, cryo-EM and XFEL approaches. The successful candidate will be expected to perform research, produce research reports and contribute to scientific articles.

Desirable skills and experience:

- Experience in molecular biology

- Experience in protein _expression_ (insect cells and e.coli) and purification

- Solid knowledge in protein characterization and biophysical methods

- Experience in x-ray crystallography and/or cryo-EM

- Experience is membrane protein research will be an advantage



Position 2: Research Scientist

The candidate will provide experimental support in the areas of membrane protein production (bacteria, yeast and insect cells), biophysics, membrane protein crystallisation (for x-ray and XFEL) and Cryo-EM. The successful candidate will work with a team of highly skilled scientists to ensure the timely delivery of research objectives. The scientist will be expected to perform research, produce research reports and contribute to scientific articles.


Desirable skills and experience: 

- Relevant degree or scientific experience

- Passionate about science and research

- Strong communication skills 

- Ability to work alone and as part of a team

- Experience in protein production and crystallisation would be an advantage 

The candidates will be working under Dr Isabel Moraes leadership (http://www.npl.co.uk/people/isabel-moraes)

 For more information please contact Dr Isabel Moraes (Isabel.moraes@npl.co.uk)
