A full-time BBSRC funded postdoctoral research associate position is available for 10 months from 1st January 2014. The project will investigate the structure of the chordin-bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) inhibitory complex leading to an understanding of how extracellular BMP regulation is controlled in tissue assembly and developmental patterning. The research will employ a range of biochemical and biophysical techniques. You will be highly motivated, have (or expect to hold shortly) a PhD in structural biology, biophysics or biochemistry and have practical experience of structural biology/biophysical methods. You should be able to demonstrate creativity and problem-solving ability, meticulous laboratory technique and record-keeping, along with a strong work ethic.
