People are at the heart of what we are and do. We want to attract outstanding, inspirational, and talented people, support them to succeed, and celebrate their success. Working at the University of Birmingham gives you access to the best financial and physical resources, a beautiful campus and an intellectually stimulating and diverse community. Our sector-leading development programmes have made this a place where staff can thrive and recognition by Athena Swan, Stonewall, and Two Ticks demonstrates our commitment to supporting talented people from all backgrounds.
The laboratory of Dr. Leney at the University of Birmingham is looking for a skilled Post-Doctoral Research Associate with experience in either biochemistry and/or mass spectrometry in order to tackle the characterisation of photosynthetic complexes from microalgae. He/she will extract and purify novel colourful and fluorescent protein complexes from microalgae. He/she will also develop mass spectrometry techniques related to the project, in particular in the fields of top-down, cross-linking and native mass spectrometry. As a consequence, he/she will ideally have a solid grounding in protein mass spectrometry and the handling of protein complexes. He/she will also contribute his/her mass spectrometry expertise to other projects, centred on post-translational modifications and how these control protein function.
The post-holder will hold or be close to completing a PhD in a structural biology-related or mass spectrometry field, with practical experience in a wide range of biochemical and analytical techniques. Computational experience in modelling mass spectrometry data is desirable. He/she will be able to demonstrate significant problem-solving skills and research independence. Candidates should be able to communicate effectively complex information, prioritise their workload and show strong attention to detail.
The responsibilities may include some but not all of the responsibilities outlines below.
We value diversity at The University of Birmingham and welcome applications from all sections of the community’
