Post-doctoral Training Fellow - Cryo-electron Microscopy and Single Particle Analysis
The Institute of Cancer Research
We seek to appoint a Post-doctoral Training Fellow to Dr Edward Morris’ team in the Division of Structural Biology. The post is funded by a programme grant from Cancer Research UK. The successful applicant will undertake structural analysis by high resolution cryo-electron microscopy and single particle analysis on protein complexes associated with the ubiquitin-proteasome system, in particular the 26S proteasome and the COP-9 signalosome. The goal is to establish an improved understanding of these molecular machines which are either established or potential targets for cancer drugs.
Applicants should possess a PhD (or equivalent) in biological sciences. Experience in and enthusiasm for structural biology is essential and experience in electron microscopy and single particle analysis would be highly advantageous.
Appointment will be on a Fixed Term Contract for 3 years in the first instance, with a starting salary in the range of £28,087 to £36,170 p.a. inclusive (based on previous post-doctoral experience).
To apply please submit your CV and covering letter (addressing where you meet the person specification and including the names and addresses of two referees) online at http://www.icr.ac.uk/jobsearch
