A post-doctoral position funded by the ANR project HeparInfSkin is available for a structural biologist in the team “Structural Glycobiology and Neurobiology” at the AFMB laboratory, Marseille, France.

We are seeking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated and creative individual with solid knowledge and expertise in structural biology and biochemistry to investigate the structure-function relationships of enzymes involved in heparan sulfate degradation in collaboration with the groups of Kevin Baranger (LIENSs, La Rochelle) and Franck Morel (LITEC, Poitiers). In particular, we aim at deciphering how protein partnership or oligosaccharide-based compounds could modulate enzymatic activity.

Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. (or being in the process of completing one) in a relevant field with a demonstrated record of productive research. Experience in protein expression, particularly in eukaryotic cells, in biochemistry, and in single particle cryo-EM or X-ray crystallography is highly desirable.

Applicants are invited to submit i) a cover letter describing research interests, ii) a CV and iii) the names and contact details of three references to yves.bourne[at]univ-amu.fr.

Position open as long as this advert is posted.
