The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany), with additional sites in Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo (Italy).
The appointed Group Leader(s) will be ambitious structural biologists with an original multidisciplinary research programme oriented towards structure-function relationships of macromolecular complexes in eukaryotic systems. Current fields of interest at the Outstation include transcription, epigenetics, non-coding RNAs, RNA virus replication and host-pathogen interactions, but new areas, for instance, integrating structural and cell biology could be envisaged. He/she will benefit from the world-class environment of the EMBL Grenoble Outstation within the Partnership for Structural Biology** which gives access to integrated state-of-the-art structural biology technologies, including the ESRF synchrotron X-ray beamlines for MX and SAXS, neutron scattering at the ILL, cryo-EM (Polara with K2 direct detector) and high-field NMR as well as protein expression screening, insect cell facilities, biophysical platform, confocal microscopy and high-throughput crystallization platforms for soluble and membrane proteins.
