Applications are invited for a post-doc position in the group of Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy in the Structural and Computational Biology Unit at the EMBL in Heidelberg. The research work will focus on solid-state NMR studies of protein/ligands and protein/RNA complexes. The EMBL group of Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy has a strong record in solution-state NMR, for which it is equipped with an 800, a 600 and a 500 MHz spectrometer. A new solid-state NMR spectrometer (700 MHz) will be installed in the first half of 2011. The post-doc applicant should be willing to use a combination of both solution- and solid-state NMR spectroscopy to study complex structures. Ability to work independently on a solid-state NMR spectrometer is mandatory.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D degree and should have received outstanding training in solid-sate NMR spectroscopy applied to protein, nucleic acids or ligands and should have a solid publication record. Strong motivation and excellent scientific skills are essential, as well as willingness to work in a team.
