Dear PHENIX Community,
We are currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow to join our research programme on the regulation and functions of ADP-ribosyltransferases. Please see the job description for the position and instructions on how to apply below.
Post-doctoral Training Fellow: Protein Biochemistry / X-ray Crystallography (funded by Cancer Research UK)
We seek to appoint a Post-doctoral Training Fellow to a new team led by Dr Sebastian Guettler in the Divisions of Structural and Cancer Biology. The post is funded by Cancer Research UK. The successful applicant will undertake biochemical, crystallographic and functional studies on members of the ADP-ribosyltransferase (or “PARP”) family of proteins and their regulators. Our goal is to gain insight into the control and cellular roles of these enzymes with a specific interest in ADP-ribosyltransferase-dependent signalling processes linked to cancer.
Applicants should possess a PhD (or equivalent) in biochemistry or molecular biology. Experience with recombinant DNA techniques, high-quality protein expression and purification, protein characterisation (such as protein-protein interaction analyses and enzymology) as well as protein crystallography is essential. Experience in protein production in insect cells would be of advantage.
Appointment will be on a Fixed Term Contract for 3 years in the first instance, with a starting salary in the range of £28,425 to £34,944 p.a. inclusive (based on previous post-doctoral experience).
For further details and instructions on how to apply, please refer to our online vacancy and recruitment site at http://www.icr.ac.uk/jobsearch, quoting job reference number 1376940 for this position.
Closing date: 22nd November 2013
While applications need to be placed via our online system, informal inquiries can be sent to Dr Sebastian Guettler at sebastian.guettler at icr.ac.uk<mailto:sebastian.guettler at icr.ac.uk>.
Research in the Divisions of Structural and Cancer Biology focuses on the functional, biochemical, and structural characterisation of cellular processes relevant to cancer and cancer therapy. The Division of Structural Biology has managed facilities for protein crystallography (crystallisation robots, Bruker Microstar and CCD detector), cryo-electron microscopy (FEI Tecnai F20 and T12), and protein production with expertise in multi-subunit expression (insect cell, yeast and bacterial expression, including a 60-litre fermentor). The Division is also well equipped with instrumentation for biophysical analysis (e.g. ITC, fluorescence, multi-angle light scattering). The Division of Cancer Biology provides a state-of-the-art infrastructure for mammalian cell culture, imaging, mammalian genetics, chemical biology and proteomics.
The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) is one of the world’s most influential cancer research institutes. Our mission is to make the discoveries that defeat cancer. We have a long and distinguished history of research with a major impact on the outcome for cancer patients. Our unique partnership with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (RMH) makes us the largest comprehensive cancer centre in Europe, performing high quality original basic research and translational studies. Under the leadership of Chief Executive Professor Alan Ashworth FRS, we are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best minds in the world. The ICR was ranked as the UK’s top academic research centre in the 2008 Higher Education Funding Council Research Assessment Exercise. Based on our publication record, citations and impact we rank among the world’s leading cancer research centres.
