Postdoctoral position – Structural Biologist


Strasbourg, France

Two years full time postdoctoral position available in the laboratory of Elisa Bergamin, PhD., at the Institute of Genetic and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) in Illkirch-Graffenstaden, near Strasbourg, in France.

We use a combination of cryo-electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography, biochemistry, and other functional assays to study the molecular mechanisms of action of the mammalian SWI/SNF protein complex with special attention to newly identified subunits.
We welcome highly qualified and motivated individuals with a Ph.D. training in structural biology (cryo-electron microscopy, X-ray crystallography) and/or protein biochemistry.

The ideal applicant will have experience with cryoEM, protein crystallography, molecular biology, and protein complex expression and purification. Although not a strict requirement, preference will be given to candidates with experience in single particle Cryo-EM. The position might also be of interest to people with experience in other structural biology areas (crystallography, NMR, computational modelling) that are eager to learn cryo-EM.

The IGBMC is a leading European research institute focused on understanding human disease and basic biological mechanisms at the molecular level. It counts several state-of-the-art technical facilities including the Titan Krios cryo electron microscope and a high throughput crystallization facility. It is a vibrant, international scientific community.
