You should hold a PhD/DPhil, or be near completion of a PhD/DPhil in biochemistry, molecular microbiology, or related discipline and have substantive expertise in protein purification, protein characterization, and recombinant DNA techniques. Experience of working with membrane proteins, expertise in bacterial genetics, and expertise in quantitative fluorescence microscopy and image analysis would all be advantageous. You will be highly organised with the ability to work both independently and as part of a team and have good communication skills. A good publication record is expected, taking career stage into account.


This full-time fixed-term post is funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council for up to 3 years in the first instance and is based at the Department of Biochemistry, South Parks Road, Oxford.


The actual starting salary offered will be based on qualifications and relevant skills acquired and will also be determined by the funding available.
