[SA_scat] Two 5-year postdoctoral positions in structural biologyat Grenoble

5 Year Fixed-Term based in Grenoble (2 Posts)
Starting Salary: (Research RA1A) Grade 7 27,466

Two postdoctoral researchers are sought to work in Grenoble on projects in
structural biology as part of a collaboration involving Keele, Cambridge,
Glasgow, King's College London, Oxford, Portsmouth, Reading, and Southampton
Universities. The projects will be carried out in collaboration with the
Institut Laue Langevin (ILL), the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility
(ESRF), and the EMBL Grenoble Outstation.

The projects, using small angle scattering, fibre diffraction,
macromolecular crystallography, NMR, will exploit platforms within the newly
created Partnership for Structural Biology, including the ILL/EMBL
Deuteration Laboratory. The PSB is a partnership aimed at focusing
state-of-the-art facilities available on fundamental issues relating to
human health.

Successful candidates will have a PhD in the physical sciences, biophysics,
biochemistry or molecular biology. Projects include structural studies of
human pyruvate dehydrogenase, lipid/membrane protein interactions, labelling
methods for NMR, subunit structure of type I restriction-modification
enzymes, DNA & DNA-ligand interactions, amyloidogenic peptides, chromatin
structure, and filamentous viruses.

These projects are funded by the EPSRC, and will be based at the ILL. The
PSB/ILL is situated in a lively scientific campus in the heart of the French
Alps. Further information on the ILL and its activities may be obtained at
