Position: Research Fellow
Institution: University College London
Department: Research Department of Structural and Molecular Biology
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow to develop and apply new NMR-base methods to probe the structure and dynamics of proteins in solution. The job also includes theoretical calculations and generating models that bridge side-chain structure and NMR chemical shifts. The role holder will be expected to produce independent, original contributions to the research area of NMR spectroscopy and protein dynamics
Requirements: The role holder will hold a PhD in a relevant subject area or close to submitting their thesis. Proven knowledge of NMR spectroscopy and related methodologies, knowledge in the development of NMR methodology to characterise the dynamics of proteins and kinetic processes related to proteins and enzymes, knowledge of density functional theory calculations and molecular dynamics simulations are all essential for the role

NMR method development is a major part of our research, as well as the combination of NMR with computational tools. We are particularly interested in the dynamics, function, and regulations of human histone deacetylases (HDACs) and domains of the von Willebrand Factor (vWF). We are looking to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow to develop and apply new NMR-base methods to probe the structure and dynamics of proteins in solution. The job also includes theoretical calculations and generating models that bridge side-chain structure and NMR chemical shifts. The role holder will be expected to produce independent, original contributions to the research area of NMR spectroscopy and protein dynamics. This post is funded for 8 months with the possibility of extension. Key Requirements The role holder will hold a PhD in a relevant subject area or close to submitting their thesis. If the successful applicant has yet to be awarded their PhD initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £30,922-£32,607 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis. Proven knowledge of NMR spectroscopy and related methodologies, knowledge in the development of NMR methodology to characterise the dynamics of proteins and kinetic processes related to proteins and enzymes, knowledge of density functional theory calculations and molecular dynamics simulations are all essential for the role.
