Postdoctoral research assistant (2 posts)

The Carvalho Lab is recruiting postdoctoral researchers to investigate the mechanisms of protein degradation using cell biology, biochemistry and structural biology approaches.

You will join a diverse group of researchers working on several aspects of organelle biology at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford (UK).

The main goals of these positions are: 1) to uncover how membrane proteins are degraded by a process called ERAD; 2) to reveal how ERAD of specific substrates regulates diverse physiological processes such as nuclear envelope dynamics, lipid homeostasis or antigen presentation.

You will be a self-motivated and enthusiastic scientist with a PhD (or be close to completion of PhD) in a relevant field, with a strong background in cell biology, biochemistry or structural biology. We are looking for a scientist aiming to work as part of a friendly and supportive team, and with a clear career goal.

The posts are full-time and funded for up to 3 years in the first instance. For further information please contact Pedro Carvalho ( or visit the group’s website.
