TWO POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITIONS
Structure-function investigations of La protein and eIF5
Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics
GST School of Biomedical Sciences
Applications are invited for two postdoctoral scientists to investigate the
mechanism and structure-function properties of proteins involved in regulation
of RNA metabolism and translation initiation (Alfano et al., 2004 Nat. Struct.
Mol. Biol.; Jacks et al., 2003 Structure).
The two positions are funded by The Wellcome Trust and are available
immediately. The successful applicants will find themselves working in a
dynamic and exciting research environment and will be based in the Randall
Division on the Guy’s Campus, London UK.
Position 1: Candidates should have a PhD degree and experience in NMR structure
determination of macromolecules and/or a strong background in molecular biology
and protein biochemistry. Prior experience in multidimensional NMR techniques,
RNA preparation and isotope labelling would be highly beneficial but training
will be provided. This position is up to 32 months. Salary will be £21,640 to
24,820 (depending on experience) plus £2,330 London Allowance.
Position 2: Candidates should have a PhD degree with a good background in
molecular biology/protein biochemistry and/or biophysical techniques including
biological NMR. Previous experience in biological NMR would be advantageous but
training will be provided. The position is up to 12 months. Salary will be
£19,000 to 21,640 (depending on experience) plus £2,330 London Allowance.
