Research Fellow - Single-Molecule Optics/Biophyics Applied to Membrane Receptors - (fixed term) - closing date 15th February 2019 (Birmingham)
We are seeking a highly motivated physical scientist with relevant expertise in single-molecule microscopy and the design and construction of advanced optical systems to join our vibrant, multidisciplinary team at the Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors (COMPARE). The postdoctoral position is supported by a large research programme funded by the Wellcome Trust.
Our group based at IMSR/COMPARE investigates the molecular mechanisms of signalling by G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), which mediate the effects of many hormones and neurotransmitters and are major drug targets. To this end, we develop innovative biophysical methods based on single-molecule microscopy and FRET (e.g. Calebiro et al. PNAS 2013; Godbole et al. Nat. Commun. 2017; Sungkaworn et al. Nature 2017).
Further details and applications can be made through the University of Birmingham.
