The ideal candidate has experience in protein purification and biochemical/biophysical characterization. Expertise in the field of structural biology techniques (X-ray crystallography, Cryo-EM) is an advantage.
The expected start date of the project is January 2024. Candidate must send a cover letter and an updated CV summarizing education, positions and academic work, and a complete list of publications and the names and contacts of reference persons.
