Experienced Researcher (Postdoctoral) Position
A two year postdoctoral position, funded by an EU-Initial Training Network (Project TAMPting) is available at Synaptic Systems GmbH, Germany (http://www.sysy.com/index.php) to create and exploit high quality polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies recognising key cellular components involved in TA protein biogenesis and cytosolic degradation pathways.
•Design and production of relevant immunogens comprising both recombinant proteins and synthetic peptides.
•Creation of eukaryotic expression vectors for GFP fusion proteins to enable the characterization of new antibodies.
•Immunization of mice, rabbits and/or guinea pigs for the production of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies.
•Purification of antibodies by affinity chromatography.
•Characterisation and validation of antibodies via immunostaining, immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation.
•Derivatisation of antibodies using biotin and fluorophores.
This project will deliver a range of new antibodies against biomedically relevant tail-anchored proteins and key cellular components that facilitate their biogenesis in a range of organisms.
The start date is somewhat flexible
