Postdoctoral position in structural biology (2 – 3 years) at the University of Oulu

The University of Oulu in Northern Finland, with approximately 16,000 students and 3,000 employees, is an international, multidisciplinary research university with a rich pool of creative and intellectual talent. The strengths of the University include broad, multidisciplinary research interests, a modern research and study environment, and wide cooperation with international research and educational institutes (http://www.oulu.fi/university/). 
An open postdoctoral position is available in the field of structural biology in the research group of Prof. Petri Kursula, focusing on membrane protein structural biology and the formation of proteolipid membrane multilayers in the nervous system myelin sheath. The position is located at the Faculty of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine (FBMM) (http://www.oulu.fi/fbmm/), whose mission is to perform internationally significant research and to deliver high-level undergraduate and postgraduate education in the fields of biochemistry and molecular medicine. Research at the Faculty is carried out in 14 research groups. The Faculty has ~200 employees, and approximately half of them are from abroad. Together with Biocenter Oulu (http://www.oulu.fi/biocenter/), the Faculty has put a great effort towards building a cutting-edge research infrastructure that includes state-of-the-art instrumentation for imaging, gene-modified mice, X-ray crystallography, and quantitative biochemistry. The Faculty has extensive collaborative national and international networks including Biocenter Finland and the ESFRI projects Instruct, EuroBioimaging, and Infrafrontier. We also partner in EU-Biostruct-X and Marie Curie Renaltract ITN and organize EMBO workshops and international symposia. The research group has well-established international collaborative networks and frequent access to synchrotron radiation.
