POST-DOCTORAL RESEARCHER IN PROTEIN ENGINEERING (M/F)
The Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology (IME) conducts research in the field of applied life sciences from a molecular level to entire ecosystems. Our interdisciplinary organization and laboratories encompass state-of the-art equipment, GMP facilities and facilities for complex environmental simulations. We engage in a wide spectrum of research and development services in our three divisions: Molecular Biotechnology, Applied Ecology and Bioresources.
A postdoctoral position in Structural Biology is immediately available in the laboratory of Marina Mapelli at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) in Milano to study mechanisms of asymmetric stem cell divisions (http://bit.do/marinamapellilab).
We are looking for candidates with a strong background in biochemistry of protein complexes and structural biology.
For additional information see the enclosed call.

A Parkinson's UK-funded position is available in the laboratory of Dr Heike Laman at the University of Cambridge in the Department of Pathology.
We are seeking a highly motivated and talented post-doctoral research scientist to investigate the Parkinson's disease-associated E3 ubiquitin ligase Fbxo7/PARK15 and its role in neurodegeneration. The goal of this project is to investigate Fbxo7-regulated pathways and how their mis-regulation causes neuronal loss in the midbrain. To tackle these questions, a wide range of techniques will be used, including biochemical and cellular assays, stem cell technologies and in vivo modelling. Productive experience in at least one of the following areas would be highly advantageous: mitochondrial biology, mouse models of neurodegeneration, and ubiquitin biology.

We're currently looking for talented scientists to join our innovative academic-style Postdoc. From our centre in Cambridge, you'll be in a global pharmaceutical environment, contributing to live projects right from the start.
You'll take part in a comprehensive training programme, including a focus on drug discovery and development, given access to our existing Postdoctoral research, and encour aged to pursue your own independent research in cutting edge laboratories. It's a newly expanding programme spanning a range of therapeutic areas across a wide range of disciplines.
What's more, you'll have the support of a leading academic advisor, who'll provide you with the guidance and knowledge you need to develop your career. This is an exciting area that hasn't been explored to its full potential, making this an opportunity to make a real difference to the future of medical science.

The Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC) Frankfurt is a new site of the SGC embedded in the internationally renowned Buchmann Institute for Molecular Life Sciences, Goethe University Frankfurt. SGC is a not-for-profit, public-private partnership encompassing 8 pharmaceutical companies that conducts re-competitive research to facilitate the discovery of new medicines. Based at several additional international universities (Oxford, Toronto, Chapel Hill, Campinas) the SGC's work contributes to new hypotheses in understanding and treating human disease, and the subsequent identification of new targets for drug discovery. The BMLS is integrated into several collaborative networks and contains state-of-the-art technology platforms including EM, NMR and microscopy.
Mechanisms of Inflammation
A postdoctoral position is available in Fabio Martinon's laboratory at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Lausanne (UNIL), Switzerland. (http://www.unil.ch/central/en/home.html).
The Department of Biochemistry is part of the Faculty of Biology and Medicine and offers an outstanding environment for a successful postdoctoral career. The research campus is located in Epalinges (north of Lausanne), and is part of the Center of Immunity and Infection (CIIL) that also includes the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR) and several groups of the Lausanne University Hospital CHUV. The research focus is on Cell biology, Immunology and Cancer.
A 2 years Post Doctoral position is available in the Laboratory of Microbiology and Host-Pathogen interaction, at the Department of Biosciences- University of Milan- for a highly motivated individual.
The general focus of the project is the interaction between intestinal microbiota and the immune response in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD).
The project involves translational approaches and a team with expertise in metagenomics, microbial genetics and functional immunology. The candidate will study the evaluation of the molecular mechanism by which specific components of the gut microbiota induce differentiation and activation of pathogenic Th1/17 cells.
Candidates with demonstrated skills and knowledge in cell biology, molecular biology and microbiology techniques are encouraged to apply.
Applicants should have demonstrated scientific productivity, good inter-personal and communication skills, and scientific independence.
