Secondary structure from chemical shifts: Postoctoral position in Structural Biology UNIVERSITY OF OXFORDDEPARTMENT OF BIOCHEMISTRYPostdoctoral Research Associate in Structural BiologyWe are seeking to appoint a highly motivated Postdoctoral ResearchAssociate in the laboratory of Dr. Ioannis Vakonakis for studies ofproteins involved in centriole assembly. The successful candidate willjoin a multidisciplinary collaboration between Oxford and the groups ofProf. Pierre Gönczy (EPFL) and Dr. Michel Steinmetz (Paul ScherrerInstitute) in Switzerland. Recently, our joint efforts elucidated theorigins of centriolar 9-fold symmetry (Kitagawa, Vakonakis etal.,Cell144, 364-375, 2011), a critical step in the centrosomalduplication process that ensures genome stability in animals. We nowseek to build upon this breakthrough by studying the structure/functionrelationship of centriolar components such as SAS-6, SAS-5, SAS-4,ZYG-1, SPD-2 and others. The successful candidate will contribute to theanalysis of these targets using structural (crystallography, solutionNMR and/or small angle scattering) and biophysical methods.Applicants should possess/be expected to obtain a PhD in naturalsciences and should have experience in aspects of the structural biologypipeline, for example protein production and purification, NMRspectroscopy or X-ray crystallography. Past experience withcomplementary biophysical techniques (ITC, AUC, CD etc) and biomolecularinteractions is desirable. Previous familiarity with centriolar orrelevant biological systems would be an advantage but is not essential.This full-time post is funded by the Biotechnology and BiologicalSciences Research Council (BBSRC)for up to three years in the firstinstance and is based in the New Biochemistry building, South ParksRoad, Oxford. More information about our group can be found by clickingon the link below:http://www2.bioch.ox.ac.uk/~rrnmr This position is graded on the University’s grade 7 scale, for which thesalary range is £29,099 – £35,788 per annum. The actual starting salaryoffered will be based on qualifications and relevant skills acquired andwill also be determined by the funding available.For further general information, phone (01865) 613204, quoting referencenumber BR/493.Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.To apply for this role and for further details, including the jobdescription and selection criteria,please click on the link below:https://www.recruit.ox.ac.uk/pls/hri…ec?p_id=101979 The closing date for applications is Monday, 20thFebruary 2012.
