Post-doc position in cryo-EM at Oxford

A post-doctoral position, initially for two years, is open in the group of Robert Gilbert at the Division of Structural Biology, Oxford (http://www.strubi.ox.ac.uk).

We are using both X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM to determine the structures of macromolecules and macromolecular complexes involved in eukaryotic protein synthesis and its control at the post-transcriptional level. The postholder will primarily work on recoding of translation that produces -1 and +1 frameshifts with their main focus being cryo-EM data collection and analysis.
