We are looking for a post-doctoral research fellow who is interested in liquid condensate and their physiological function. The candidate's research will focus on the structural underpinnings of the protein-protein interactions that emerge at the front of migrating tumour cells in an effort to create methods to prevent breast cancer cells from invading healthy tissue.
We offer unique access to first-class instrumentation for structural biology. At the Magnetic Resonance Center (CERM) of the University of Florence, twelve high-resolution NMR spectrometers ranging from 400 MHz to 1200 MHz are available. CERM also features an advanced molecular biology laboratory and a biophysical laboratory with last-generation Q-Band CW/FT-EPR (with the possibility of operating in CW-X-band) EPR spectrometer, dynamic light scattering, CD, stopped-flow, fluorimetry, UV-visible spectrophotometers, isothermal micro-calorimeter and differential scanning calorimeter, atomic absorption (ICP-MS). Laboratories equipped for mass spectrometry (ESI and MALDI-TOF) and X-ray diffraction are flanking the NMR research infrastructure. For further information on CERM, please visit www. cerm.unifi.it.
The successful candidate should have a PhD (or near to completion) in chemistry, biophysics, biochemistry, chemical biology, structural biology, or related areas. Previous experience in NMR and/or in molecular biology is a plus.Requirements
