Postdoc in Cryo-EM and Functional Studies

Designation: Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Area: Cryo-EM and functional studies of Na,K-ATPase isoform complexes associated with brain and cardiovascular disorders.

Location: Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University, Universitetsbyen 81, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark.


  • Ph.D. in a relevant discipline.
  • Experience in membrane protein studies, including cryo-EM studies and biochemical/biophysical studies.
  • Prior experience in animal experimentation.
