A postdoctoral position is available immediately at Karolinska Institutet to investigate the structure of mammalian proteins that mediate egg-sperm interaction at the beginning of fertilization.

The project will combine X-ray crystallographic and single particle cryo-EM studies, performed in collaboration with the group of Prof. Hans Hebert. Thus, the position is particularly suited to an electron microscopist who would like to expand his/her knowledge to protein crystallography, or viceversa. Moreover, previous experience in protein expression using mammalian cells will be a significant advantage.

The KI Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, located just outside Stockholm, has state-of-the-art equipment for protein expression, purification and in house X-ray and EM data collection; frequent access to synchrotron sites and excellent computational facilities are also available. With their close integration of academic, clinical and industrial research, KI and the Department of Biosciences and Nutrition offer a highly international and collaborative environment for biomedical studies.

Highly motivated candidates are encouraged to apply by e-mailing a curriculum vitae, summary of research experience and interests, and names and contact information for two references to Luca Jovine (luca.jovine at ki.se).

Please note that, in order to be eligible for this position, candidates should be non-Swedish citizens who have obtained a doctorate or the equivalent outside Sweden no longer than 3 years ago. Deadline for application is 30 June 2010.
