Posdoc Position in Biomolecular NMR spectroscopy - Selenko lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science

A PostDoc position in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy is available in the Selenko Lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Department of Biological Regulation. Our group studies cellular aspects of intrinsically disordered proteins with particular emphasis on human amyloid proteins and neurodegenerative disease processes [1,2]. The laboratory has a strong interdisciplinary focus and combines methods in Molecular, Cellular and Structural Biology, for which the Weizmann Institute offers an exceptional range of advanced research infrastructures. These include the newly established Clore Institute for High-Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy with 600, 800 (MHz) and 1 GHz solution-state NMR spectrometers (all equipped with cryoprobes). The advertised position is initially funded for two years with the possibility of extension. Salaries commensurate with experience.

Requirements: The candidate should have completed a PhD in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy and have a strong background in protein-based NMR methods. Demonstrated skills in recombinant protein production and purification and in working with disordered proteins are of advantage. Keen interest in cellular NMR applications including in-cell NMR spectroscopy is expected. He/she must share our excitement for research at the interface of Biology and Physics, be highly motivated, goal-driven, open to new approaches and techniques, and able to tackle demanding projects.

How to apply: Please send relevant documents including CV and list of publications, research interests and accomplishments, career goals and contact information of three referees by email (as one pdf file) to philipp.selenko@weizmann.ac.il
