Jobs and vacancies at DANDRITE

Postdoc position in single molecule FRET studies of membrane transporters

The Danish Institute for Translational Neuroscience (DANDRITE) at Aarhus University invites applications for a postdoc position on using single molecule FRET techniques to study P-type ATPase membrane transporters. The position is funded by The Independent Research Fund Denmark (FNU) and is initially for 19 months. The position is available from the 20th January 2019. Single molecule FRET techniques can provide a hitherto unseen degree of mechanistic insight into the functions of biomolecules. We recently published a study demonstrated the first application of single molecule techniques to the class of P-type ATPases (Dyla et al. 2017 Nature 551: 346351). The current project aims to elaborate on this study by increasing the time resolution, introducing additional structural perspectives and using single molecule techniques to guide crystallization.

Deadline for applying to the job: 24 December 2018
