Postdoc and PhD Positions in Biomolecular NMR spectroscopy - Selenko lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science
Postdoc and PhD positions in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy are available in the Selenko Lab at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Department of Biological Regulation. The Selenko group studies cellular aspects of intrinsically disordered proteins with particular emphasis on human amyloid proteins and neurodegenerative disease processes. The laboratory has a strong interdisciplinary focus and combines methods in Molecular, Cellular and Structural Biology, for which the Weizmann Institute offers an exceptional range of advanced research infrastructures. These include the newly established Clore Institute for High-Field Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy with 600, 800 (MHz) and 1 GHz solution-state NMR spectrometers (all equipped with cryoprobes). The advertised position is initially funded for two years with the possibility of extension. Salaries commensurate with experience.
Instruct-ERIC workshop on Computational Approaches in Integration of Structural Biology Techniques
On October 8 – 10, the Institute of Biotechnology of the Czech Academy of Sciences organised an Instruct – ERIC workshop on Computational Approaches in Integration of Structural Biology Techniques.
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Chemistry
