Post Summary 
The Membrane Structural and Funtional Biology group seeks to solve the structure of medically important membrane proteins for use in structure/function studies and for structure-based therapeutics development. Target proteins are involved in communicable and non-communicable diseases. 

An exciting postdoctoral research position is available in the group. We are looking for a highly motivated, creative and hardworking individual with experience in biochemistry and molecular biology to join our multidisciplinary team at Trinity in a lab that offers superb facilities and a supportive environment. Individuals interested in moving into the membrane protein field are encouraged to apply. 

Person Specification
The candidate must have a Ph.D in biochemistry, biophysics, molecular biology or a related field. Demonstrated success in all aspects of molecular biology, recombinant protein production, purification, and functional characterization is required. Experience with membrane protein over-expression, crystallization, and structure-function studies is desirable. The candidate should be a highly motivated and creative individual who enjoys working as part of a collaborative, multidisciplinary team. Strong leadership, communication and teaching skills are decided assets. A willingness and freedom to travel worldwide on short-term projects is expected. 

Salary 
€38,631 - €45,942 per annum depending on experience

Closing Date 
Until the position is filled
