Structural dynamics of membrane proteins in their native environment: focus on bacterial antibiotic resistance

A postdoctoral position is available for 4 years to probe the structure and dynamic rearrangements of membrane proteins central to antibiotic resistance, using advanced mass spectrometry methods.

In this project the post holder will develop chemical biology and structural mass spectrometry methods (primarily hydrogen/deuterium exchange mass spectrometry) to achieve structural and dynamic insight into membrane proteins within native lipid membrane environments, including within live cells. This would be a huge step forward in understanding how membrane proteins shape the function of cells for the determination of native membrane protein structural biology information.

Applicants should have a PhD in biological, chemical or physical sciences and previous postdoctoral/contracted researcher experience would be an advantage.

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.

This is a full-time post with funding to support this fixed-term position until 30 April 2023.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract.  

Successful candidates are scheduled to start in July 2019 (although later dates will be considered).

To facilitate internal procedures, once you have applied for this funding please email your name, surname and a copy of your CV to Dr. Eamonn Reading (please refer to the job pack). Only successful candidates will be contacted.
