Dear Colleagues,

We are seeking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow for the structural and biochemical characterization of eukaryotic transcription complexes by X-ray crystallography or electron microscopy (single-particle cryo-EM and/or cryo-electron tomography). The successful candidate will join the group of Christoph Müller, Structural and Computational Biology Unit, at EMBL Heidelberg. EMBL is a leading international research organization with a collaborative and interdisciplinary atmosphere (see The cryo-EM facilities at EMBL are outstanding and soon house two FEI Titan Krios, a Talos Arctica and Polara equipped with state-of-the-art direct electron detectors. The Müller group studies molecular mechanisms of eukaryotic transcriptional regulation as also described at

The successful candidate holds a Ph.D. in structural biology or biochemistry. The position is particular suitable for an experienced protein crystallographer who is interested in moving into cryo-EM or an electron microscopist with experience in single-particle cryo-EM and/or cryo-ET. The position requires exceptional motivation and commitment, the ability to work independently as well as in a team and excellent technical, organizational and management skills. Further details regarding work in the laboratory and details of the projects can be directly obtained from Christoph W. Müller ( EMBL is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive conditions and benefits appropriate to an international research organisation. Closing date: 14 May 2017. Please apply online through

Best regards,

Dr. Christoph W. Müller
Head of Structural and Computational Biology Unit
