Postdoctoral Scientist in endosomal cargo sorting.
We have the following full-time postdoctoral research position available within the group of Professor Peter Cullen at the University of Bristol, U.K:
Position: Biochemical analysis of retriever assembly
Funded through an MRC programme grant, the research focuses on the lab’s recent identification of a highly conserved multi-protein complex termed retriever, that functions as a molecular machine for controlling the retromer-independent endosome-to-plasma membrane recycling of numerous integral membrane proteins following their endocytosis (including integrins, adhesion molecules and nutrient transporters / sensors). Through multi-disciplinary and collaborative research, you will seek to biochemically define retriever’s assembly to provide insight into the function of this complex in health and disease, with a particular focus on an emerging role in neuroprotection.
You will have a relevant PhD (awarded or imminent), experience in relevant experimental techniques (ideally hands-on expertise in recombinant protein purification and cryo-EM). The position is available for 2.5 years.
Informal enquiries are welcomed at Pete.Cullen@bristol.ac.uk.
We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
