An ERC funded postdoctoral position is now available in the laboratory of Alessandro Costa. We are looking for a highly motivated researcher to study the mechanism of chromosome replication using in vitro reconstitution and cryo-electron microscopy. The successful candidate will use a range of techniques including biochemistry, structural mass spectrometry and cryo-electron microscopy to elucidate the mechanism of replisome progression in eukaryotes. For more information about this research please visit the lab websites https://www.alecostalab.net and https://www.crick.ac.uk/research/labs/alessandro-costa. The successful candidate will have an expertise in mechanistic biochemistry and/or structural biology and a PhD in a relevant area (or be in the final stages of completion).
The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute dedicated to understanding the fundamental biology underlying health and disease. Its work is helping to understand why disease develops and to translate discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.
An independent organisation, its founding partners are the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, Wellcome, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King’s College London.
The Crick was formed in 2015, and in 2016 it moved into a new state-of-the-art building in central London which brings together 1500 scientists and support staff working collaboratively across disciplines, making it the biggest biomedical research facility under in one building in Europe.
The Francis Crick Institute will be world-class with a strong national role. Its distinctive vision for excellence includes commitments to collaboration; developing emerging talent and exporting it the rest of the UK; public engagement; and helping turn discoveries into treatments as quickly as possible to improve lives and strengthen the economy.
