Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position in the group of Bostjan Kobe at the School of Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences (SCMB), University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.
We are searching for a motivated candidate, ideally with experience with cryo-electron microscopy, and/or other structural biology and protein biochemistry techniques, to study the structural basis of function of proteins involved in innate immunity pathways in plants. For some of our recent publications on related topics, please see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28159890 , https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28759049 and https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24744375 .
University of Queensland is one of Australia's top universities. SCMB combines the disciplines of chemistry, biochemistry & molecular biology, microbiology and parasitology into a single academic unit. SCMB is situated in the beautiful St. Lucia campus on the Brisbane River.
New state-of-the art facilities for cryo-EM are currently being installed and will be available on-campus later in the year (including CRYO ARM 300 and CRYO ARM 200 JEOL field-emission cryo-electron microscopes with direct electron detectors for single-particle analysis). Facilities for high-throughput crystallization (Mosquito robots, Rock Imagers) and various biophysical techniques (MALS, ITC, SPR etc) are also available on-campus, and there is regular access to the Australian Synchrotron.
Brisbane is one of Australia's most liveable cities and has a fantastic subtropical climate. It is only a short drive from Australia's best beaches and provides opportunities for all sorts of outdoors and cultural activities.
The salary will be according to qualifications and experience. The positions are for 2 years, with possible extension subject to funds. The starting date is flexible. The application deadline is 10 May 2019. Please see the links below for details of the positions and application procedures.
