Postdoctoral Fellowship in Integral Membrane Receptors at University of Copenhagen, Denmark

The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research & The Novo Nordisk center for Basic Metabolic Research, is recruiting a post doctoral fellow for a time-limited 2-year project to work on Integral Membrane Receptors. The starting date is 1 September 2011, or as soon as possible thereafter.The postholder will work in an interdisciplinary team with members from both the CPR and from the section for Metabolic Receptology at the CBMR and with outreach to International Research Alliance partners.

The research will focus on structure functional aspects of a novel family of membrane receptors and will involve expression, purification and functional characterization of receptors and their domains. Extensions of the project will involve structural characterization of the receptors and their protein domains. You will at the centers work closely together with researchers focusing on a number of different cell biological aspects of this receptor family as well as molecular pharmacological and computational chemistry/biology aspects.
