Postdoctoral position in G-quadruplex research in Prague

The Curtis Group at the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry in Prague is searching for a postdoctoral fellow to characterize the high-resolution structures of G-quadruplexes with different biochemical activities by NMR. The successful candidate would work closely together with the IOCBioNMR team led by Vaclav Veverka. The Institute’s core NMR facility accommodates the 850MHz and 600 MHz Bruker instruments.

Requirements: Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology or related field. Expertise in NMR structural biology is required, and previous experience with nucleic acid structures is preferred.  Applicants must be highly motivated and able to work independently.

How to apply: Please send a cover letter describing your qualifications and research interests, a CV, and contact information for two professional references to Edward Curtis (curtis@uochb.cas.cz) or Vaclav Veverka (veverka@uochb.cas.cz).
