UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH SCIENTIST IN STRUBI 
DIVISION OF STRUCTURAL BIOLOGY, WELLCOME TRUST CENTRE FOR HUMAN GENETICS, ROOSEVELT DRIVE, HEADINGTON, OXFORD, OX3 7BN

Grade 7: £30,434 - £37,394 with a discretionary range to £40,847 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in STRUBI to join Dr Robert Gilbert’s group in the Division of Structural Biology at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics.

Dr Gilbert’s group makes use of structural biology and biophysical techniques to study the mechanisms of cell adhesion. Recent work in our lab has revealed key details of the role of kindlin proteins in integrin activation and the focus of this grant is kindlin-3. You will continue the successful work we have done to date on the kindlin-3 structure and investigate in more detail the exact basis on which it recognises membranes and integrins and triggers the activation of cell adhesion, especially in blood clot formation.

You will have a PhD/DPhil in the structural and functional studies of pore-forming and related proteins, with the expectation that the thesis will be submitted before 31st March 2016. You will have substantial research experience in at least three of the following areas: Protein expression and purification; Biophysical interaction analysis; Structure determination by X-ray crystallography; Electron microscopy of proteins and their complexes. You will have a good publication record, with documented examples of recent work at the level of first author publication in a leading refereed journal. You will have the ability to manage the day-to-day running of a research project including assisting the work of junior researchers, and will have good communication skills, including the ability to present work at international symposia and to non-specialist audiences.

The position is fixed term for 1 year in the first instance and funded by the Medical Research Council.
