Title: Postdocs SLS

Membrane protein serial crystallography
Your tasks
Serial crystallography (SX) has emerged as an effective method for micron-sized crystals, such as the ones from membrane proteins. To ease their handling, in meso in situ serial crystallography (IMISX) was developed for the systematic diffraction screening and rapid data collection from hundreds of micro-crystals without the need for direct crystal harvesting. You will further develop IMISX method and SX method in general, by exploiting crystallization and sample delivery methods and fast frame-rate X-ray detectors. You will also be involved in the automation of the structure determination workflow, from crystal delivery to data processing.

Native-SAD phasing at low energies
Your tasks
The recent development of native-SAD phasing using 6 keV X-rays has made the method more accessible for real-life targets. However, many systems with low sulfur content and low diffraction resolution (> 3 Å) are still out of reach. You will have a unique opportunity to further improve native-SAD phasing using lower X-ray energies (3 – 5 keV) by exploiting the latest X-ray detector – JUNGFRAU and novel sample delivery methods, and demonstrate its advantages with challenging targets like membrane proteins.

Project Title
Inhibiting Dual-Specificity Tyrosine Phosphatases (DUSPs) as a Method for Preventing Resistance to Herceptin in Her2-Positive Breast Cancer

Project Description
You will work on an ambitious programme of structure-based drug discovery to produce novel drugs to overcome resistance to Herceptin in HER2-positive breast cancer.
Molecular and systems-level research during the past two decades have led to development of anti-cancer drugs that act by inhibiting specific molecules that play key roles in tumorigenesis process or in tumour survival. A prime example of this is Herceptin (trastuzumab), an antibody that inhibits HER2 and is used to treat HER2-positive breast cancer. Despite its effectiveness, two thirds of patients who respond to Herceptin develop resistance and relapse within one year. Understanding the molecular basis for such resistance and devising methods to prevent or reverse it are therefore of critical importance. Our aim is to design new inhibitors of protein phosphatases, which function downstream of HER2 and are key regulators of signaling and survival in breast cancer.

We are looking for an enthusiastic individual, highly motivated with efficient skills in time managing and project leading. This post offers an excellent opportunity to join a dynamic research team focused on drug development in the School of Biological Sciences (Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health) with superb multidisciplinary facilities and stimulating working environment.
You must hold a PhD in Structural Biology/ Protein Crystallography/ Biochemistry and have a strong background in protein biochemistry and crystallisation.

- the specific research focus of our laboratory inspires you

- you love to gather information from the literatures and helps generate creative ideas and technical solutions

- you relish working on technically challenging problems, which often require an extended persistent effort to crack

Job Description, Qualification, and Expectations:

Primary activities in this position include, but are not limited to:
- Expression and purification of the protein complexes for biochemical and structural studies
- Structure determination of the protein complexes by cryo-EM or/and X-ray crystallography
- Biochemical assays to characterize the recombinant protein complexes
- Providing intellectual contributions to the projects including writing manuscripts, fellowship application and helping PI for grant applications

Website: https://jobs.le.ac.uk/vacancies/vacancy-details.aspx?VacancyID=332

The Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology (LISCB) is one of five flagship research institutes recently established by the University of Leicester. LISCB hosts 22 active research groups and brings together internationally renowned research using structural biology, chemical biology and single molecule methods to investigate major challenges in fundamental biological processes into a single world-leading unit.

Since it was established in August 2016, LISCB has received significant investment from the University and more than £12million in external funding. This includes a major investment in a state-of-the-art cryo-electron microscopy facility and significant upgrades to the NMR facility.

We are looking to recruit a Research Institute Manager to further develop the scientific direction and impact of the LISCB, working closely with the Institute Director and other senior staff. The successful candidate will develop and maintain the strategic scientific vision of the Institute and establish the Institute’s long-term sustainability. They will also engage in events and activities to promote the LISCB’s national and international profile and reputation.
