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.
What to do when your grant is rejected
Losing out on a grant hurts, but don’t lose heart — average success rates are around 20% among large funders, so grant rejection is common. Discover how to bounce back, find alternative funding and boost your chances of success next time.
Revolutionary cryo-EM is taking over structural biology
The number of protein structures being determined by cryo-electron microscopy is growing at an explosive rate. A report published by Nature on February 10, 2020 says that a revolutionary technique for determining the 3D shape of biomacromolecules is booming. Last week, a database that collects protein and other molecular structures determined by cryo-electron microscopy, or cryo-EM, acquired its 10,000th entry.
