[ccp4bb] Postdoc position, Sugar Transporting Membrane Proteins (Denmark)

Dear colleagues,
Please pass this along to anyone who might be interested. Thanks!

Postdoctoral position in Structure of Sugar Transporting Membrane Proteins at Aarhus University, Denmark.

online posting: http://tiny.cc/MBG_postdoc

We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated postdoc with an interest in working on sugar transporting membrane transporters and preferably with a proven track record in the area of structural and/or functional analysis of membrane proteins.

The position will be open from summer 2020, but starting date is negotiable. Funding is available for at least 2 years of employment, with an automatic extension possible for up to a total maximum of 4 years.

The position:
The position seeks to strengthen ongoing activities in the laboratory of Bjørn P. Pedersen on structure, related to the function and mechanism of sugar-transporting membrane proteins (pedersenlab.dk). The laboratory's interest is the interplay between structure and function of transmembrane transport processes with a focus on metabolite uptake systems, and the methods uses are primarily crystallography, cryo-EM and biochemistry. The group is part of the Section of Structural Biology at Aarhus University.

The candidate:
A successful candidate has a relevant Ph.D. degree and a solid and documented background in structural biology, biochemistry and/or biophysics. Experience with membrane protein _expression_ and purification is favored, and the candidate must demonstrate an ability and interest to work with membrane proteins with a structural aim. Applicants should be ambitious, show strong collaborative skills, and be able to take initiatives and responsibility within the work environment.

The successful candidate is offered:
- access to a well-developed research infrastructure.
- a research climate inviting lively, open and critical discussion within and across different fields of research.
- a working environment with teamwork, close working relations, network activities among young scientists and social activities.
- a workplace characterized by professionalism, equality and a healthy work-life balance.

The city:
In Aarhus you have easy access to beautiful nature, an exciting culture and city life as well as a safe environment for children - a great place for the whole family. The city of Aarhus has everything you need: exciting national and international jobs, delightful residential areas, a rich cultural life, and beautiful surrounding landscape of woods and coastline that make Aarhus a wonderful place to live and work.

All applications must be made online (http://tiny.cc/MBG_postdoc) and received by Apr. 2nd, 2020.
