Applicants should have a degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry or related. For the Postdoctoral position experience in structural biology is required.
The offered positions correspond to the project named "Structural and functional studies on Smad transcription factors" (PI: Maria J. Macias)

A second Postdoctoral position is available for the project Synthesis of modified peptides and structural characterization of their interactions with pharmacologically relevant proteins. Synthesis of inhibitors (PIs: Maria J. Macias and Antoni Riera). For this position, experience in peptide chemistry and/or chemical ligation is of advantage, and no experience in molecular biology is required.
Applicants should send to or to their C. vitae, including a list of their publications, a cover letter explaining the candidate’s interest in the position and the names and contact details (including e-mails) of three individuals we may contact for reference letters.
