    Qualifications

    The candidate must present a significant experience and strong track record in characterization of membrane protein complexes, protein production, the use of mammalian expression systems, handling of challenging sample preparation procedures, and the advanced application and trouble shooting of single-particle cryo-EM studies. Cryo-electron tomography may also become relevant to the project

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    The position is part of a research program “molecular landscapes of brain” within the DANDRITE neuroscience center of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine.
    The project is focused on complexes of FRMD7 and coreceptors in neurons to explain how direction sensitivity is established in vision, and how mutations in FRMD7 that are causative of congenital nystagmus interfere with this function. This is a project in close collaboration with Dr. Keisuke Yonehara at DANDRITE.
