postdoctoral position King's College

A postdoctoral position supported by the King's College London British Heart Foundation Centre of Excellence is available at King's College London in the field of ROS biology. The project is a collaborative effort amongst the groups of Prof Ajay Shah MD (Cardiovascular Division, King's College London), Dr Conte and Dr Steiner (Randall Division of Cell and Molecular Biophysics, King's College London) aimed at elucidating the molecular mechanism of controlled ROS production in higher organisms.

The project is highly interdisciplinary and will combine structural biology (X-ray and NMR) with biophysical (ITC), biochemical and cell biology work. The post requires experience in molecular biology/protein biochemistry. Proven prior experience in protein expression using the baculovirus system is also considered very important. Additional experience with biophysical methods complementary to structural biology and/or oxygen biochemistry is welcomed.

The post is available immediately and funding is initially for 18 months. Salary will be commensurate to prior experience and qualifications. Interested applicants should contact Dr Maria R Conte ( directly by submitting their CV together with the names of three referees. Informal inquiries are welcome.

Deadline for this application is 21st March 2011.
