A position for a post-doctoral fellow or a PhD student funded by Swiss National Science Foundation is available at Biomolecular Research Laboratory (BMR) of Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in Villigen, Switzerland.

Our group is focusing on the structural studies of eukaryotic flagella/cilia and dynein motor proteins by electron cryo-tomography and microscopy. The aim of the project is to reveal the mechanism of flagellar/ciliary bending motion and dynein power stroke. We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate with good communication skills and a solid background in molecular and cellular biology and experience of structural biology and/or computation.
