Dear colleagues,
We have an open postdoc position. 3 days left before deadline. Come joint us. Great working environment, World-class science. Good work/life balance.



Postdoctoral position in Structure of Plant Hormone Transporting Membrane Proteins at Aarhus University, Denmark.

online posting:

We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated postdoc with an interest in working on plant hormone transporting membrane transporters and preferably with a proven track record in the area of structural and/or functional analysis of membrane proteins and an interest for plant biology.

Starting date is negotiable. Funding is available through an ERC grant for at least 2 years of employment. An extension is possible for up to a total maximum of 4 years of employment as a postdoc.

The position:
The position seeks to strengthen ongoing activities in the laboratory of Bjørn P. Pedersen on structure, related to the function and mechanism of plant hormone-transporting membrane proteins as defined by the ERC project MUM-GROW (pedersenlab.dk). Exact project will be shaped out in dialogue with top runners. The laboratory's interest is the interplay between structure and function of transmembrane transport processes with a focus on metabolite uptake systems, and the methods uses are primarily crystallography and cryo-EM. The group is part of the Section of Structural Biology at Aarhus University.

The candidate:
A successful candidate has a relevant Ph.D. degree and a solid and documented background in structural biology, biochemistry and/or biophysics. Experience with membrane protein expression and purification is favored, and the candidate must demonstrate an ability and interest to work with membrane proteins with a structural aim. Applicants should be ambitious, show strong collaborative skills, and be able to take initiatives and responsibility within the work environment.

The successful candidate is offered:
- access to a well-developed research infrastructure.
- a research climate inviting lively, open and critical discussion within and across different fields of research.
- a working environment with teamwork, close working relations, network activities among young scientists and social activities.
- a workplace characterized by professionalism, equality and a healthy work-life balance.
