      Dr Aravindan Ilangovan

    Applications are invited for two Postdoctoral Research Associates with expertise in structural biology to join the research group of Aravindan Ilangovan at Queen Mary University of London. These Wellcome Trust Funded posts will be based at the Centre for Structural Biology within the School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences (SBBS) at Queen Mary.

    The project is focused on the molecular mechanism of DNA replication initiation in bacteria. Together with the laboratory of Prof. Heath Murray at Newcastle University, this work is aimed at unravelling the sequence of events that lead to helicase loading during initiation and restart. This structural biology project will take advantage of the expertise in the lab working with nucleoprotein complexes aided by dedicated cryo-EM and X-ray crystallography facilities. The group has routine access to the Titan Krios microscopes at LonCEM and eBIC and an in-house computing infrastructure for data processing.

    We are seeking two enthusiastic and ambitious individuals to develop, drive and deliver their research project, while working with other members of the Ilangovan group and our collaborators on a regular basis. Candidates must have a meticulous approach to data collection, analysis and preparing manuscript for publication. A demonstrated ability to communicate well, work within a team, and deliver projects within an agreed timeframe is also essential. Evidence of high-impact publication in structural biology or a related field is desirable.

    The post is full-time and fixed term for 3 years, with the possibility of an extension thereafter. The expected start date is 1st March 2023 or soon as possible thereafter.

    We offer competitive salaries, access to a generous pension scheme, 30 days’ leave per annum (pro-rata for fixed-term), a season ticket loan scheme, staff networks and access to a comprehensive range of personal and professional development opportunities. In addition, we offer a range of work-life balance and family-friendly, inclusive employment policies, flexible working arrangements, and campus facilities including an on-site nursery at the Mile End campus.
