The position is within the field of NMR spectroscopy of biological systems. The candidate is expected to have a strong track-record of developing and using advanced NMR-methods for studying the chemistry of biological systems. The candidate will be part of the Danish Center for Ultrahigh-Field NMR Spectroscopy, which is housed at the Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University.


The Laboratory of Biological Crystallography and NMR (LCRB) is seeking a highly motivated candidate in the field of NMR spectroscopy to set up a new team. The LCRB is part of the Pharmacy Faculty of the University Paris Descartes located in the center of Paris. The local research environment is geared towards pharmaceutical sciences (drug design, synthesis, formulation, function, …). Research at the LCRB is focused on structural and functional studies of biological systems involved in human health.

The Li lab in the Department of Chemistry at University of Louisville is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our lab immediately.

​Climatic changes lead to a significant increase of the hydric stress periods for plants (both grasslands and trees). This lack of water supply can have important consequences on the ecosystem with, for example, a decrease of the quantity and/or quality of the plant production. Nutrients are transported in the plant through the soap flow. It is especially this flow which is altered during hydric stress period.

The Macias lab at IRB Barcelona has two open positions for highly motivated Structural Biologist PhD students to join our laboratory. Our research interest is focused on deciphering the mechanisms that correlate cell signaling with gene expression using high resolution structural biology.
