The candidate for the position in Structural Biology will have a Ph.D. degree in (Bio)Physics, (Bio)Chemistry, or related discipline, considerable postdoctoral experience and a proven track record of scientific excellence. The group is expected to perform innovative research in Structural Biology related to or complementing the research portfolio of the FMP. Integrative structural biology approaches with an emphasis on cryo-electron microscopy are particularly welcome.
The institute offers a vibrant interdisciplinary research environment. FMP researchers have access to advanced technology platforms including solution and solid-state NMR-spectroscopy, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, live cell super-resolution imaging, (cryo-) electron microscopy as well as small-molecule and whole-genome siRNA screening.
The positions are limited to an initial period of 5 years. Candidates are expected to secure extramural funding within young investigator programs of national or international organizations, such as the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), the German Ministry of Science (BMBF), or the European Research Council (ERC).
