A postdoctoral position is available immediately. The JP lab (http://jeyaprakash.bio.ed.ac.uk) aims to understand the structural level mechanistic details of processes regulating error-free chromosome segregation. The successful candidate will combine protein biochemistry and structural biology with mammalian cell based assays to dissect the molecular details of how specific intermolecular protein interactions achieve stable centromere maintenance and accurate chromosome segregation during cell division.
Applicants must have (or will shortly be awarded) a PhD with training in biochemistry, structural biology and cell biology. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual with an outstanding academic track record, good communication skills and the ability to work as a team. Applicants with experience in single particle cryoEM, biochemistry and mammalian cell based siRNA/CRISPR rescue assays are encouraged to apply.
The post is for 12 months in the first instance with the possibility of extension.
Closing Date: 16 June 2017 at 5pm GMT
