Currently there are four vacant positions at the postdoctoral and research assistant levels (2 Post-Docs and 2 research assistants) in the lab of Prof. Markus Grütter in the Department of Biochemistry.

We seek enthusiastic team players with experience in at least one of the following disciplines: protein X-ray crystallography, protein expression and purification, and eukaryotic expression systems. Experiences in membrane protein biochemistry will be an advantage. Good knowledge of English is mandatory. Candidates applying for the Post-Doc position should hold a PhD in a life science-related subject. All positions are time limited for three years. Salary will be according to the regulations of the Swiss National Science Foundation scheme.

Please submit your electronic application including a CV, a list of publications (for the Post-Doc positions) and the names of two to three referees to Mrs. Salome Rittmeyer at the following address: secgruetter@bioc.uzh.ch
