Description

  • Organisation/Company: Centre for Molecular Biology
  • Research Field: Biological sciences › Biological engineering
  • Researcher Profile: Recognised Researcher (R2)
  • Application Deadline: 30/09/2021 00:00 - Europe/London
  • Location: Austria › Wien
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 40
  • Reference Number: 12288
  • Marie Curie Grant Agreement Number: No
  • Staff scientist position is available until the 28th of February 2022 in the research group of Kristina Djinovic-Carugo in the Department of Structural and Computational Biology, Max. F. Perutz Laboratories at the University of Vienna, Austria. The Max Perutz Labs are a joint venture of the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna. Located at the Campus Vienna Biocenter the Max Perutz Labs are home to over 450 scientists from over 30 nations organized in 62 groups working in the field of molecular biology. The position is vacant for the period of absence of a member of staff. The main area of the group research is structural biology of F-actin based cytoskeleton, with main focus on striated muscle. We use integrative structural biology approach, combining various structural, molecular biology, biochemical and biophysical approaches.

    The Department of Structural and Computational Biology is equipped with state of the art instrumentation/facilities to carry out all steps from cloning, protein expression and purification, to X-ray diffraction, biomolecular NMR, as well as for a series of biophysical and optical spectroscopy techniques. The group has access to major European synchrotron high brilliance X-ray sources where it employs MX and SAXS beamlines.

    The successful candidate will take active participation in structural biology research, teaching and administration. This involves: - Developing and strengthening the independent research profile - Involvement in research projects / research studies - International publications and presentations - Responsibility for project applications and the acquisition of third-party funding - Preparing / writing publications - Independent teaching of courses as defined by the collective agreement - Supervision of students - Participation in evaluation measures and quality assurance - Responsibilities in lab management (in particular operation and management of X-ray crystallography equipment) with help of a technical assistant and a senior staff scientist.

    Furthermore, the post-doc will be involved in (but not limited to) conducting laboratory experiments related to all aspects and steps from sample preparation and characterisation to crystal growth, X-ray diffraction and solution scattering, structure solution, analysis and interpretation of scientific data, collaboration with other scientists and dissemination at external events as well as research administration.
