Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Birkbeck, University of London, London, United Kingdom
Application deadline: 23 Aug 2020

A postdoctoral research position has become available at the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology in London. You will be joining a newly established team focusing on the fundamental processes regulating the redox homeostasis in higher eukaryotes. You will be involved in molecular and structural characterisation of large macromolecular (protein and protein/nucleic acid) complexes using cryo-electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography. This project presents unique opportunities to gain insights into basic mechanisms responsible for maintaining redox homeostasis, but is highly deregulated in human diseases ( and You will interact with members of the Institute of Structural and Molecular Biology (ISMB) Electron Microscopy groups. This research program also involves collaboration with international teams.

A motivated and talented Postdoctoral Research Assistant is sought to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the activation and regulation of the oxidative stress response.

Applicants should have a PhD, or about to be awarded, in Structural Biology, Biochemistry or Biophysics, and have relevant research publications. Candidates having experience in cryo-EM are strongly encouraged to apply.
