*Postdoctoral position - Membrane protein Biochemist *

We are looking for a protein biochemist to join our team. We are
investigating the structure and function of ion channels, membrane proteins
that generate electrical signals in excitable cells. They are targets for
disease mutations linked to cardiac arrhythmia, epilepsy, myopathies, and
much more. We combine high-resolution techniques (X-ray crystallography,
cryo-EM) with functional methods (calorimetry, electrophysiology) to obtain
a complete understanding of their function.

Our institute is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for structural
biology, including a new Titan Krios microscope with FalconIII detector and
Volta phase plate, Vitrobots and screening microscopes (Tecnai Spirit and
F20), 2 Rigaku 007 instruments for X-ray diffraction, and various robotics
for setting up and visualizing crystallization screens.

Your profile:

* A recent PhD (obtained within the last 4 years)

* Experience with structural biology (NMR, X-ray Crystallography or

However, applicants with excellent skills in membrane protein expression
and purification, especially in mammalian or insect cell lines, are also
encouraged to apply.
