We would like to bring to your attention this opening in our center
Junior Group Leader Opening at the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) is committed to attract and nurture the development of young
talented independent investigators in our unique environment. With this call we wish to recruit a Group Leader to become part of our Protein Structure and Function Program.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (https://www.cpr.ku.dk)
was established in 2007 at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, to promote basic and applied research.
Copenhagen is a family friendly but at the same time lively city flooded with cultural events
during the year, which is ranked among the best cites to live in the world.
CPR spans broad areas of protein research, ranging from structural and mechanistic understanding of protein complexes and
protein pathways. The Center is structured into five complementary research programs: Proteomics, Protein Structure and Function, Protein Signaling, Disease Systems Biology and Protein Memory (starting in 2020), each of which is supported by dedicated technology
Protein Structure and Function Program
The Protein Structure and Function Program is a founding member of the Integrative Structural Biology Cluster (ISBUC) at
the University of Copenhagen (https://isbuc.ku.dk/),
and it currently consists of two research groups led by Professor Guillermo Montoya and Associate Professor Nicholas Taylor. The program also coordinates the Center´s protein production, molecular biophysics and crystallization platforms and the University
of Copenhagen node of the national cryoEM facility (https://krios-denmark.ku.dk/),
which is equipped with a Titan Krios and a Glacios, both equipped with Falcon 3EC direct electron detectors. Large computer power is available through our partnership with the Danish Supercomputer for Life Sciences (http://www.computerome.dtu.dk/).
In addition, the Copenhagen area provides easy access to the synchrotrons in Hamburg (DESY) and Lund (MAX-IV) as well as the European XFEL (Hamburg).
Job description and responsibilities
We are looking for strong candidates that would develop and lead an independent, innovative research group investigating game changer questions in biology
at a molecular level. We seek for applicants in the area of integrative structural biology using and/or combining cryo-electron microscopy (including cryo-electron tomography), crystallography and biophysical approaches towards the mechanistic understanding
of cellular processes. The ideal candidate should be complementary to the current interests and analytical expertise in the Protein Structure and Function Program
and with a high potential to integrate within the other CPR programs through interdisciplinary projects.
