A position is available to study the structure and mechanism of membrane transporters. We are interested in the mechanics of the transport reaction as well as in evolution of these enzymes. We also aim to design new methodologies to manipulate their properties, such as specificity, stability and reaction rates. We use a combination of X-ray crystallography and a board range of biophysical techniques. The successful candidate will have a recent Ph.D. in a relevant field and a strong background either in protein biophysics (protein folding, allostery, dynamics or evolution) or in the studies of membrane proteins, such as transporters, channels or receptors. Experience in membrane protein expression and analysis and in X-ray crystallography is a plus. Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential. Please send a cover letter, CV and names of three individuals who will provide recommendation letters.
