PhD/PostDoc Zürich

A PhD and a Postdoc position are available in the group of Oliver Zerbe in Zurich. You will be working on a collaborative and highly interdisciplinary effort to create repeat proteins that serve as binders to extended peptides. Participating groups on the campus are from the field of protein design, crystallography and computational (modelling) sciences. The project has entered its second phase and many highly interesting data have been already derived and much has been achieved already. Both the graduate student as well as the Postdoc will be working in biochemistry (protein expression and purification, in particular protein ligation techniques) and NMR spectroscopy/structure determination. Knowledge in protein structure determination by NMR and good biochemical skills are required for the Postdoc position. Candidates on this very interdisciplinary project will have access to state-of-the-art NMR facilities and biochemistry labs at the University of Zurich. Anyone with a strong interest in protein design and NMR is encouraged to apply. Positions are paid according to salaries from the Swiss National Science Foundation. Please provide a CV, a short description of your interests and the names and addresses of 2-3 references. Please feel free to contact me any time if you are interested. I will also be at the ICMRBS conference in Lyon and please talk to me there if you happen to be there and want to hear more about the project or our lab.
