A postdoctoral research position is available in the group of Prof Andrew Hall, Institute of Anatomy, University of Zurich. We use multimodal microscopy in combination with advanced computational image analysis to quantitatively study cellular dynamics in the kidney, and how they are altered in disease states. Our multi-disciplinary translational group combines expertise in biophysics, data analysis, cell biology and clinical nephrology, and is situated directly adjacent to the extensive core imaging facility at the University of Zurich.
We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral candidate to join our team and work on developing, producing and characterizing rationally designed small fluorescent reporter proteins and peptides to study endo-lysosomal system function in cells and in mouse models of human diseases. The successful candidate must have a background in organic chemistry, biochemistry or biophysics and a proven expertise in peptide and protein design, purification (HPLC, RPC, SEC, IEC), fluorescent labeling (including FRET and quenching) and quality control (MS, SDS-Page, UV/Vis, fluorescence assays).
As an integrative and communicative personality, they must also be capable of working independently within a diverse team, overseeing good laboratory practice and have a strong publication track record.
Zurich is an attractive city and offers a very good standard of living. The post is available immediately until filled and comes with a highly competitive salary.
Please send your application by email including: explanation of your motivation for applying and your relevant expertise, CV, copies of degree certificates, and contact details for at least two referees.
