In recent years, it has become possible to reconstitute the activity of eukaryotic replisome in biochemical experiments. Here, you will contribute to the exciting challenge of understanding the dynamics of DNA replication by setting up assays to study this key biological process at the single-molecule level on both DNA and chromatin substrates. As a researcher on this project, you will contribute to the ability to carry out well-controlled experiments at the single-molecule level. You will be involved in the purification and labelling of proteins as necessary, and contribute to the group’s overall expertise in the areas of molecular biology and biochemistry.
We are looking to hire an outstanding scientist with expertise in surface chemistry, protein labelling, and molecular biology for this exciting collaborative project at the interface of biochemistry and biophysics. In particular, we are looking for a post-doctoral researcher keen to participate in different technical aspects of this project (surface chemistry, protein labelling, molecular biology) aimed at understanding the mechanistic aspects of DNA and chromatin replication. You will be expected to contribute to improvements in experimental design through hands-on work based on your in-depth knowledge of the background literature, and to do so in collaboration with other team members. A strong background in biophysics or biochemistry is a necessity. A good command of spoken and written English is a must.
