One Postdoctoral Scientist in endosomal cargo sorting.
We have the following full-time postdoctoral research position available within the group of Professor Peter Cullen at the University of Bristol, U.K:
Position: Biochemical analysis of Commander assembly
Funded through an MRC programme grant, the research focuses on a highly conserved multi-protein assembly termed Commander, that functions as a molecular machine for controlling the retromer-independent endosome-to-plasma membrane recycling of numerous integral membrane proteins following their endocytosis (including integrins, adhesion molecules and nutrient transporters / sensors).
Through multi-disciplinary and collaborative research, you will seek to biochemically define Commanderís assembly to provide insight into the function of this complex in health and disease, with a particular focus on an emerging role in neuroprotection.
You will have a relevant PhD (or will soon be awarded a PhD), experience in relevant experimental techniques (ideally hands-on expertise in recombinant purification of multi-protein complexes and cryo-EM).
The position is available for 2 years.
Informal enquiries are welcomed, please contact Professor Pete Cullen at Pete.Cullen@bristol.ac.uk.
We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
