Postdoc Position for 3 years on Bacterial Cell Division at the University of Amsterdam
How the bacterial cell divides is still unknown. In this project the key cell division components will be reconstituted into artificial membrane vesicles to enable detailed study of the complex dynamic between the different cell division proteins. In addition, comprehensive genetic analyses will be employed to investigate the intricate interactions between cell division proteins in vivo. Understanding the mechanism of cell division is of fundamental interest. However, this knowledge can also be applied to develop novel antibiotics, which is urgently needed, considering the worrying increase in multidrug resistant pathogens.
We are seeking an enthusiastic candidate who recently finished or will soon finish her/his PhD (start date is negotiable). Key qualifications: proven excellence (publications), and main experience in protein biochemistry, lipid biology, or other biochemical experience, preferably related to membrane biology. Application deadline is 31/05/13, but promising candidates will be interviewed on first-come first-serve basis.
