Project: Resolving ligand binding mechanisms in peptide transporters
A highly motivated biological magnetic resonance spectroscopist is sought to join a mature project to combine crystallography and solid-state NMR to define structure and function of peptide transporters, jointly supervised between Tony Watts ( http://www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/~awatts/ ) and Simon Newstead ( https://newsteadgroup.org or https://www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/research/newstead ) in the Biochemistry Department, University of Oxford, UK.
Experience of solid-state NMR and/or ESR DEER, and other biophysical techniques with membrane systems, as well as specialized sample production for spectroscopic investigations, is essential. Familiarity with other structural biology techniques and their extension into biochemical functional descriptions is desirable. Knowledge of membrane transport assays using liposome based systems and experience of functional assays, would be an advantage.
The post holder will have primary responsibility for the project work, including planning and managing the research project. The post holder will also contribute to the general smooth running of the laboratory and will be expected to help with training and teaching within the laboratory.
Preparing recombinant prokaryotic peptide transporters in a suitable form for spectroscopic and other biophysical studies.
Analysing spectroscopic data to resolve structure-function information.
Biochemical analysis of protein function, including in vitro reconstitution of membrane transporters.
Designing and chemical labelling of specific mutants for NMR and/or EPR spectroscopy.
Writing papers for publication and for presenting at conferences and seminars.
Working as part of a multidisciplinary team in collaboration with another laboratory.
Participation in laboratory meetings
Applicants should possess or expect to obtain soon, a PhD in Biochemistry or a related area. Funding (BBSRC is the funding body) is available for 2 years (start date asap), upon satisfactory completion of a 3 month probationary period.

The College of Chemistrys NMR Facility at the University of California, Berkeley is looking for a highly qualified postdoctoral scholar to assist with solid-state NMR applications as well as general facility maintenance. The position is for one year (12 months) with the possibility of renewal up to an additional four years, and the financial support does not depend on grant funding. The scholarship will take place in the College of Chemistrys rich and diverse research environment with a unique opportunity to collaborate in cutting edge science with UC Berkeley faculty as well as to gain valuable experience in management of an open-access analytical laboratory.
The NMR Facility at the College of Chemistry is a 24/7 research facility with seven Bruker NMR instruments for the use of faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral associates, and some well-supervised undergraduate researchers. The postdoctoral scholar will provide technical support for solid-state NMR, will assist with the effective operation of the facility, including maintenance of instruments and computers, and will provide instruction and training to new users of the instruments. The postdoctoral scholar will be expected to publish results from collaborations with College of Chemistry faculty and to participate in grant applications for funding new instruments.
The post-doctoral scholar will be responsible for:
1. Providing NMR services to campus and outside entities as requested. This will include routine solid-state NMR consultation and sample services for principle investigators, and data analysis and interpretation for facility users.
2. Assisting with general facility maintenance including cryogen fills (Helium and Nitrogen), and maintenance of facility computers and websites. The incumbent will ensure that the magnets liquid nitrogen and liquid helium fills are performed in a timely and safe manner.
3. Providing NMR training to new students and postdoctoral researchers, taking into consideration their varying needs and diverse research efforts, and evaluating users capability to use the instruments. He/She will also contribute to maintaining written tutorials and guides for students, post-docs and faculty.
4. Performing minor repairs to the NMR instruments, and will help troubleshoot common instrument problems. He/She is expected to come in on some nights and weekends for troubleshooting and repair as needed. The incumbent will also coordinate efforts with individuals or vendors to arrange for repairs to equipment if such repairs cannot be accomplished in-house. A concurrent responsibility is the ordering of appropriate electronic, computer and consumable products.
Ph.D. degree in the Sciences, Engineering, or equivalent experience;
2. Proficiency in operating Bruker NMR instruments;
3. Proficiency in solid-state NMR;
4. Excellent problem solving skills;
5. Excellent written and oral communication skills;
6. Excellent computer skills;
7. It is desirable for the candidate to have proficiency with:
a. Liquid-state NMR;
b. UNIX operating systems, including basic system administration;
c. HTML or website maintenance in general.
Salary & Benefits
Salary range for post-doctoral scholars at UC Berkeley starts at $48,216 and is commensurate with experience. The university offers excellent health insurance and benefits. Detailed information for salary and benefits can be found at http://www.ucop.edu/academic-personnel-programs/compensation/salary-scale-revisions.html and http://vspa.berkeley.edu/postdoc-health-insurance-and-benefits respectively.
July 1st, 2018 or as soon as possible after July 1st, 2018.
interested in the position should send a CV, and a cover letter to the facility
director, Hasan Celik at [ hcelik "at" berkeley.edu ], and those
attending ENC 2018 can contact Prof. Jeffrey Reimer ( reimer "at"
berkeley.edu ) on site in Orlando, FL.
University of Michigan is reopening a search for a full-time Director/Staff
for our newly established Biomolecular NMR Core Lab. The position is described
in more detail in the link to the job posting below, but we seek a research-oriented
scientist to oversee two high-field instruments (a brand new Bruker 800 MHz
and an existing Varian 600 MHz) and two lower field instruments and to collaborate
with, train, and support diverse NMR users across the University of Michigan
campus and the region. This position requires productive biomolecular NMR
experience and excellent communication skills.
