POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN PROTEIN BIOCHEMISTRY, BRAZIL
Applications are invited for postdoctoral research to study the relationship between structure and function of specific molecular chaperones with emphasis in protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions. The goal is to build models to explain the mechanism by which molecular chaperones interact with unfolded substrates and transfer them to specified molecular machines also seeking to identify potential targets for therapeutic intervention. The research group involves three main institutions of the state of São Paulo (Unicamp at Campinas and USP at São Carlos and São Paulo).
The successful candidate will have a relevant Post-doc in Biochemistry or correlated areas and will have experience in the techniques involved, including molecular biology, protein purification, molecular biophysics, structural biology and protein-protein interaction.
Evidence of practical work experience in structural protein crystallography, NMR, CRyo-EM and/or SAXS would be an advantage.
- Period: one to four years, depending on performance.
