There is an opening for an enthusiastic post-doctoral fellow to study the molecular mechanisms governing actin polymerisation, ATP hydrolysis, phosphate release, and filament stability in malaria parasite actins. The successful candidate should have a keen interest to understand cytoskeletal proteins and cell motility in depth. A strong background in protein biochemistry and X-ray crystallography is required. Expertise in cryo-EM sample preparation and structure determination will be highly valued. In addition, a high level of own initiative and the ability to work in a team and supervise younger scientists are necessary.
The Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine (FBMM) is a dynamic and international working place, where the working language is English. Protein science is one of the focal areas of the Faculty. FBMM provides cutting-edge research facilities for molecular biology, protein biochemistry, X-ray crystallography, and light and electron microscopy. In addition, we have generous access to several large-scale facilities for structural biology (MX/SAXS/cryo-EM).
