Position focus:

  • Bio-inspired and self-assembly materials, protein aggregation;
  • Intrinsically disordered and flexible proteins.

The candidate for the postdoctoral position should be able to carry out interdisciplinary projects to study the structural and dynamic properties of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs) and their complexes. Dr Mariusz Jaremko is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows with extensive experience in the protein biochemistry and biophysical methods used for characterization of proteins and to study protein-protein/peptide interactions. Dr Mariusz Jaremko’s interdisciplinary research group is focused on the design and physico-chemical and structural characterization of novel peptide/protein-based bio-inspired materials (hydro-gels, aggregates), inhibitors of protein interactions, aggregation, and liquid-liquid protein phase separation. Depending on their interests and skills, candidates will have an opportunity to expand expertise in various biophysical methods relevant to state-of-the-art Integrated Structural Biology, with a particular emphasis on solution, solid-state NMR spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM, and molecular dynamics simulations (MD).

  • PhD in biochemistry or a related field.
  • Extensive experience in the bacterial expression systems (E.coli) and purification of recombinant proteins.
  • A strong knowledge of biophysical methods and molecular biology techniques.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills in English.
  • Effective judgment and problem solving with little or no supervision.
  • A high level of motivation and commitment to academic research.
  • Additional experience in structural biology will be regarded as an advantage.

This application will require a cover letter and CV. Names and contact details for at least two references will also be requested.

In your cover letter, please specify the research area that interests you the most and in which you would like to work if you are accepted for the position.

Positions are available in the mid-fall of 2018.
