A worldwide e-Infrastructure for NMR and structural biology

Postdoctoral positions Lille

 

Two postdoctoral positions are available in the NMR group of the CNRS Laboratory UMR 
8576, located on the Science and Technology University Campus, in Lille, North of France.
 
1)        Study of the allostery in a nuclear receptor. This position is in collaboration with 
an industrial partner, and is for two years. Experience with multidimensional NMR is 
required, both at the level of the spectrometer and of the structure calculations. The 
team has access to 3 Bruker spectrometers, a 600MHz with cryoprobe, a 800MHz and a 900MHz 
with cryoprobe.
 
2)        Study of the interaction between phosphorylated Tau and the prolyl cis/trans isomerase 
FKBP52. This project is funded by the French ANR, and is in collaboration with the group 
of Prof. E.E. Baulieu (Inserm, Paris). The project aims to understand at the molecular 
level how FKBP52 regulates the physiological and pathological aspects of Tau, and its 
potential implication in Alzheimer’s disease development. The project additionally 
involves assays of small molecules with therapeutic potential. Competence in protein 
biochemistry and biophysical techniques is required. Knowledge of protein NMR is a plus. 
The position, initially for two years, can be extended by another two years in the 
framework of a Marie Curie European project funded together with the group of Dr. C. 
Ottmann in Dortmund, Germany. In the latter case, an exchange with the German group is 
expected.
 
More details can be obtained from Drs. G. Lippens (Guy.Lippens@univ-lille1.fr) or I. 
Landrieu (Isabelle.Landrieu@univ-lille1.fr). Interested candidates should send their CV 
and the names of two persons willing to write a recommendation letter.
