Postdoctoral position in protein crystallography available at ICR, London

London, United Kingdom Job closes: 27-Jan-2017 1:00 CET

The Institute of Cancer Research, London, is looking for a postdoctoral position to join the Dr Rob van Montfort’s Hit Discovery and Structural Design Team within the CTU (Ref. 1624336).

The Post-doc will be involved in high-throughput X-ray crystallography, fragment-based screening and structure-based drug design and will be responsible for crystallisation, structure determination and structural analysis of protein-ligand complexes from one of the CTU’s drug discovery programmes.

The successful candidate will also be part of the Division of Structural Biology, in which the crystallographers in Dr van Montfort’s team are embedded, and will have access to state of the art crystallisation facilities, in-house X-ray sources and excellent access to synchrotrons. The successful candidate will interact closely with the biology, computational chemistry and medicinal chemistry teams at the CTU, and will therefore be expected to work across the two sites in Chelsea, London and Sutton, Surrey.

Applicants must have a PhD in a biological or physical science, and experience in macromolecular crystallography (to include protein biochemistry, protein crystallisation, & protein crystallography). Experience in molecular biology, structure-based drug design, and/or biophysics will be an advantage.

Starting salary will be in the range £34,247 to £36,830 p.a. inclusive (based on previous experience). Appointment will be on a fixed-term contract for 1 year and benefits from a contributory defined benefit pension scheme and generous leave entitlement.
