Postdoctoral Research Assistant - the mechanisms of protein degradation (2 posts)

Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3RE

About the role

The Carvalho Lab is recruiting postdoctoral researchers to investigate the mechanisms of protein degradation using cell biology, biochemistry and structural biology approaches. You will join a diverse group of researchers working on several aspects of organelle biology at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford (UK).

The main goals of these 2-year positions are: 1) to uncover how membrane proteins are degraded by a process called ERAD; 2) to reveal how ERAD of specific substrates regulates diverse physiological processes such as nuclear envelope dynamics, lipid homeostasis or antigen presentation.

You will be a self-motivated and enthusiastic scientist with a PhD (or be close to completion of PhD) in a relevant field, with a strong background in cell biology, biochemistry or structural biology. We are looking for scientists with a solid publication record aiming to work as part of a friendly, diverse and supportive team, and with a clear career goal.

For further information please contact Pedro Carvalho via email: [email protected] or visit the group's website.
