Postdoc – U of Leeds / Astbury Centre, UK

Postdoc in structural biology, Leeds University/Astbury Centre, UK

A 2.5-year (30 month) postdoctoral position funded by the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) is available in the labs of Prof Alex Breeze, Dr Ste Muench and Prof Frank Sobott in the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology, University of Leeds (UK) to investigate fibroblast growth factor receptor:chaperone interactions.

We are looking for a creative and motivated structural biologist who can harness the power of diverse structural techniques to further our understanding of complex biological systems. In particular, for this post, we seek candidates with primary expertise in single particle cryo-EM, NMR and/or structural MS e.g. HDX-MS. Importantly, a willingness to learn other structural techniques (for which we will provide full training) and demonstrated proficiency in protein _expression_ and purification and in computational analysis of structural data, are essential.

The Astbury Biostructure Laboratory houses state-of-the-art structural facilities including Titan Krios microscopes and 950 MHz NMR. Therefore, the successful candidate will have access to world class facilities and training in highly complementary structural techniques, working in a vibrant and collaborative environment.
