Two post-doctoral positions are available at Dr. Maria J Macias Lab., at IRB Barcelona, starting in March 2016. The positions are supported by two Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – COFUND grants.

IRB Barcelona is home to nearly 450 research, technical and support staff from 35 countries who share the common goal of contributing to the advancement of the biomedical sciences. The Institute has state-of-the-art NMR spectrometers and our group has an in-house collaboration with the ALBA synchrotron, located in Barcelona.

About the work

Project 1:

The project is aimed at obtaining structural information of protein-DNA complexes using NMR spectroscopy and complementary techniques. The proteins we are investigating are mutated in tumors.
Candidates should have a background in biomolecular NMR with experience in the acquisition, processing and data assignment and also in structural calculations. Experience in molecular biology is not required.

Project 2:

The project aims to characterize structures of full-length SMAD proteins and complexes using X-ray crystallography, NMR and other complementary techniques.The candidate should have a background in theoretical and practical aspects of X-Ray crystallography. Experience in molecular biology is not required.
