Dear CCP4 community,

I am recruiting a new postdoc to support a collaborative project between
CSSB/HPI (Grünewald lab), EMBL Grenoble (Cusack lab) and BNITM aiming at
solving structures of viral polymerase proteins.

Candidate profile:

  • Completed PhD in the field of biochemistry and/or structural biology
  • Strong expertise in protein expression, protein purification and
    biochemical assays
  • Fluent oral and written English
  • Excellent organizational skills and ability to plan and execute
    experiments independently and flexibly
  • Strong team spirit and excellent communication skills
  • Creative mindset and strong problem-solving capabilities
  • Experience with working in the radioactivity lab is a plus
  • Experience with common model building and structure refinement
    programs (Coot, Phenix, CCP4) is beneficial
  • Proficiency in commonly used laboratory software is expected
    (Office, PyMOL, Chimera etc.)

We offer an interesting and challenging project in a modern research
institution and within a stimulating international collaboration, competitive
salary included. Hamburg is a great place to live and for structural biology
research. My team is open-minded, motivated and highly supportive. More about
our work can be found here:

The position is only open for 20 months (full-time equivalent) and the
scientist should start as soon as possible BUT the project is up and running.
