Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Structural Proteomics



    Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Structural Proteomics
    Molecular and Precision Biosciences
    Location: Highfield Campus
    Salary: £34,980 to £42,978 per annum
    Full Time Fixed Term for 30 months
    Closing Date: Tuesday 09 July 2024
    Interview Date: To be confirmed
    Reference: 2753424BJ

    We have an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral research fellow with a strong interest in pioneering molecular bioanalytical methods, protein science, and antimicrobial resistance. 

    In this project, the post holder will develop chemical biology and structural proteomic methods (primarily hydrogen/deuterium exchange mass spectrometry) to achieve insight into protein structure and dynamics within cellular environments. Being directly applied to decipher the dynamic rearrangements of multidrug efflux pumps, which are central to antibiotic resistance, and efforts to inhibit them to restore antibiotic efficacy. Success in this project would represent a significant step forward in the determination of how proteins shape the function of cells.

    Applicants should have a PhD, or equivalent professional qualifications, and experience in biological, chemical, or physical sciences, and previous postdoctoral/contracted researcher experience would be an advantage.

    Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded, the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.

    The postholder would join the lab of Dr Eamonn Reading at the University of Southampton. We are a welcoming and supportive group who work collaboratively with each other and with an array of national and international academic and industrial researchers. Together, we aim to advance bioanalytical science to investigate the basis of function, and malfunction, of proteins in health and disease.

    Our team and laboratories are within the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton. Southampton, and nearby Winchester, are great cities to live in and boast excellent connections to London (<1.5 hr train journey) and internationally (Southampton Airport flying to Amsterdam, Paris, Belfast, Geneva, Dublin, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Newcastle, and more).

    We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and welcome applicants who support our mission of inclusivity.

    Apply by 11.59 pm GMT on the closing date. For assistance contact Recruitment, quoting the job number.

    Other organisations may call this role Research Fellow, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Senior Research Assistant, Structural Proteomics Research Fellow, Research Assistant, or Structural Proteomics Researcher.
