A post-doctoral position is available at the University of Washington for a candidate with an interest and experience in applications of NMR to important biological problems. The successful candidate will focus on solution NMR studies of proteins, short and long non coding RNAs and their complexes. The UW has state-of-the-art NMR facilities housing 800, 700, 600 and 500 MHz spectrometers for both solution and solid state applications and cryo-probes as well as access to protein and RNA production and state-of-the-art biophysical instrumentation.

Our group aims to understand the structure and function of proteins, protein complexes and other biomolecules at the atomic level via electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. We invite applications for a PhD position to participate in one of the projects listed below:

-       Studying the role of tyrosyl radicals in catalysis of essential enzymes
-       Testing the hypothesis that enzyme adaptation is driven by protein dynamics
-       Understanding the role of π-stacked tyrosine dyad in proton-coupled electron transfer reactions

Towards understanding the glycan code: next generation structural glycobiology for accurate description of protein-glycan complexes

A two-year post-doctoral position "Development of new NMR methods for intrinsically disordered proteins, and improved descriptors to quantify protein disorder" is available from 1 April 2017 in the group of Associate Professor Dr. Frans A.A. Mulder at the Department of Chemistry and Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) at Aarhus University, Denmark.

Complete information about the position and on how to apply is available here:

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.

DESCRIPTION: 

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.

A PhD student position funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) is available on
Hyperpolarized MRI of stroke and neuroprotection.

The project is a collaboration between the School of Health Sciences – Geneva, the Laboratory for
Functional and Metabolic Imaging – EPFL and the Stroke Laboratory – CHUV.

There is a 3yrs postdoc position available at Leiden University, Leiden Institute of Chemistry, for the project “Tuning the photosynthetic membrane with atomistic precision” financed by a Dutch Fundamental Research of Matter (FOM) research grant.
