Dear Colleagues,

I would like to attract your attention to an opening in my group, please
sent it to interested candidates.

Best regards,
Misha Kudryashev

*Postdoc in cryo electron tomography of ion channels *

A postdoctoral position is available in group of Misha Kudryashev at the
Max Planck Institute for Biophysics and the Buchmann Institute for
Molecular Life Science of Goethe University in Frankfurt on Main, Germany.
The project will focus on determining structures of voltage-gated ion
channels under a membrane potential. For this we will use subtomogram
averaging from cryo electron tomograms similarly to our previous report
(Kudryashev et al, Structure 2016, 24(1):165-70), only with better hardware
and software. An ideal candidate should be enthusiastic about structure and
functions of proteins, have experience in membrane protein biochemistry /
biophysics, electrophysiology and cryo-EM, however all candidates will be

The Max Planck Institute for Biophysics in Frankfurt is a great place to
study structure and function of membrane proteins. We are very well
equipped with 3 Titan Krioses with energy filters and direct detectors,
excellent IT infrastructure and great working environment. The Max Planck
Society aims at increasing the percentage of women in research positions
and strongly encourages women to apply. The Max Planck Society is an equal
opportunity employer and particularly welcomes applications from
individuals with disabilities.

The project is funded by DFG; the position is available from May the 1st
2019 or later for two years with possible extension. The applications will
be evaluated upon recieval until the position is filled. Soft deadline is
March 31st. Candidates should send a single pdf-file including a one-page
motivation letter, a CV and names of two principal investigators from whom
reference letters can be obtained to: misha.kudryashev at biophys.mpg.de
Informal inquiries are welcome. Group website:
