Dear colleagues,
I have an open postdoc position funded by the ERC (details below).
Please pass this along to anyone who might be interested. Thanks!

Postdoctoral position in Structure of Plant Hormone Transporting Membrane Proteins at Aarhus University, Denmark.

We are looking for a highly skilled and motivated postdoc with an interest in working on plant hormone transporting membrane transporters and preferably with a proven track record in the area of structural and/or functional analysis of membrane proteins and an interest for plant biology.

Starting date is negotiable. Funding is available through an ERC grant for at least 2 years of employment. An extension is possible for up to a total maximum of 4 years of employment as a postdoc.

The position:
The position seeks to strengthen ongoing activities in the laboratory of Bjørn P. Pedersen on structure, related to the function and mechanism of plant hormone-transporting membrane proteins as defined by the ERC project MUM-GROW (pedersenlab.dk). Exact project will be shaped out in dialogue with top runners. The laboratory's interest is the interplay between structure and function of transmembrane transport processes with a focus on metabolite uptake systems, and the methods uses are primarily crystallography and cryo-EM. The group is part of the Section of Structural Biology at Aarhus University.

The candidate:
A successful candidate has a relevant Ph.D. degree and a solid and documented background in structural biology, biochemistry and/or biophysics. Experience with membrane protein expression and purification is favored, and the candidate must demonstrate an ability and interest to work with membrane proteins with a structural aim. Applicants should be ambitious, show strong collaborative skills, and be able to take initiatives and responsibility within the work environment.

The successful candidate is offered:
- access to a well-developed research infrastructure.
- a research climate inviting lively, open and critical discussion within and across different fields of research.
- a working environment with teamwork, close working relations, network activities among young scientists and social activities.
- a workplace characterized by professionalism, equality and a healthy work-life balance.

The city:
In Aarhus you have easy access to beautiful nature, an exciting culture and city life as well as a safe environment for children - a great place for the whole family. The city of Aarhus has everything you need: exciting national and international jobs, delightful residential areas, a rich cultural life, and beautiful surrounding landscape of woods and coastline that make Aarhus a wonderful place to live and work. See https://international.au.dk/life/ for details. Aarhus University offers relocation service to international researchers.
