We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to study the bacterial Type 9 Secretion System, building on our recent identification and structural analysis of the Type 9 protein translocon (Nature (2018) 564: 77). You will be required to carry out protein biochemical, cell biological, and live cell fluorescence imaging experiments. Associated structural analysis of the proteins by cryo-electron microscopy will be undertaken either by the postholder or via collaboration with other workers in the group, depending on background and interests.

You should hold a PhD/DPhil, or be near completion of a PhD/DPhil, in biochemistry, molecular microbiology, or related discipline and have substantive expertise in protein purification, protein characterisation, and recombinant DNA techniques. Experience of working with membrane proteins, expertise in bacterial genetics, and expertise in quantitative fluorescence microscopy and image analysis would all be advantageous. You will be highly organised with the ability to work both independently and as part of a team and have good communication skills. A good publication record is expected, taking career stage into account. 

This full-time fixed-term post is funded by the European Research Council for up to 3 years in the first instance. The position is based at the Department of Biochemistry, South Parks Road, Oxford but you will also carry out some work in the Department of Pathology, South Parks Road, Oxford.

The starting salary offered will be based on qualifications and relevant skills acquired and will also be determined by the funding available.
