Description

Postdoc position in production and cryo-EM studies of receptor complexes involved in metabolic regulation in brain


A 2 year postdoc position is available from 1 April 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter, in the laboratory of Prof. Poul Nissen at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University.

The project is part of a research program on metabolic regulation in brain through insulin receptor complexes and receptor complexes of the sortilin family, supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.

The candidate must present a significant experience and strong track record in production nd characterization of membrane protein complexes, the use of mammalian expression systems, and the use of structural biology methods, in particular cryo-EM. The position will have a main focus on the production, biochemical and biophysical characterization, and atomic structure determination of insulin receptor complexes and receptor complexes of the sortilin family, and may also approach molecular imaging in cellular and animal models.
The position will also involve project supervision for other postdocs and students, and interactions with other research networks in neuroscience, in particular the DANDRITE center of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, and the PROMEMO center of excellence for research on mechanisms in memory.
