Postdoctoral Research Associate in Membrane Protein Structure and Function

University of Oxford - Department of Biochemistry

South Parks Road, Oxford

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate in membrane protein structure and function, to join the research group of Associate Professor Maike Bublitz. The project aims to understand the structure and function of fungal membrane transport proteins identified as potential new drug targets, using a combination of state-of-the-art structural (X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM) and biochemical/bio-physical techniques.

Applicants should hold a PhD, or expect to obtain soon, a PhD in a relevant subject area, such as membrane protein biochemistry and/or structural biology. Experience in native or recombinant membrane protein expression, purification and either structural determination or functional analysis using biochemical and biophysical techniques is essential. The ability to work in a team, as well as contribute to supervision activities and excellent verbal and written communication skills are expected. Experience in protein X-ray crystallography and/or cryo-EM would be an advantage.

This full-time fixed-term post is funded by an AMS Springboard Grant for up to 18 months in the first instance, and is managed and supervised by Associate Professor Maike Bublitz.

Further particulars, including details of how to apply, can be obtained from the document below.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Thursday 31 August 2017, with interviews for shortlisted candidates to be held as soon as possible thereafter.
