I have two postdoctoral fellowships available in my group. Please see below for the details and feel free to spread it to anyone you think might be interested and suitable for the positions.
All the best,
Postdoctoral fellowships to study structural and functional evolution of viral proteins
The von Castelmur lab at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology (IFM) and part of the Wallenberg Center for Molecular Medicine at Linköping University, Sweden, is looking to recruit up to two postdoctoral fellows (2-year projects) to study the evolutionary relationship and functional repurposing of human proteins acquired by picornaviruses (through horizontal gene transfer).
The overall goals of these particular projects are to continue the structural and functional characterisation, already begun in the lab. The projects will involve molecular biology, biochemistry and biophysics in combination with structural biology techniques (in house access to a variety of techniques through ProLinC https://liu.se/en/research/prolinc). Therefore, we seek highly motivated individuals with practical experience and expertise in cloning and protein production (_expression_, purification, characterization), structural biology (experience in at least one technique is required) and an interest in learning new methods and skills.
Qualifications and requirements to applicants:
The application should consist of the following:
1. A short (maximum 1 A4 page) cover letter, explaining the motivation to apply for the position.
2. The CV of the applicant, including a list of published peer-reviewed articles.
3. Statement of Research Interests, max 2 pages
4. Copies of the PhD diploma (or equivalent).
5. Contact details for 2-3 references, one of which should be your PhD supervisor.
The duration of the fellowship is 2 years. Your application should be written in English and prepared as a package in PDF format, to be submitted to . Make sure to use the subject line: “application for postdoctoral fellowship IFM-2019-00239” in the application email. Submit the application on May 21st, 2019 at the latest. The top ranked candidates will be contacted within three weeks from the closing date for an interview. Starting date according to agreement. For more information, contact Dr. Eleonore von Castelmur.
