ZIK HALOmem / Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg
Since its foundation in 2008, the Centre for Innovation Competence (ZIK) HALOmem at the Martin Luther
University Halle-Wittenberg has devoted itself to the structural characterisation of membrane proteins
together with analysis of the role played by the surrounding membrane.
HALOmem is expanding its expertise platform with the establishment of a new independent research group
"Cryo-EM of membrane protein complexes", working and collaborating within the stimulating multidisciplinary
environment that has established Halle as an internationally recognised centre for pure and applied protein
biochemistry, biotechnology and biophysics.
HALOmem and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) seek a highly motivated and
out-standing junior scientist for the position of:
Tenure Track Research Group Leader
"Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Membrane Protein Complexes"
The successful candidate will establish a team to study membrane protein complexes using cryo-electron
microscopy (single particle reconstruction and/or tomography). The applicant will have trained in cryo-EM of
biological samples, with documented experience at postgraduate and postdoctoral level. The candidate will
enjoy unrestricted access to the 300 kV JEOL JEM-3200FSC (equipped with field emission gun, cryo-stage,
in-line energy filter and GATAN K2 direct electron detector).
Ideally, the applicant should have experience in:
Working in an international scientific environment
Project coordination and leadership
Obtaining third party funding
Interacting within an interdisciplinary milieu
The group will receive funding from the BMBF, including an additional four co-workers and consumables for

and administrative duties within the University is expected according to the Hochschulgesetz Sachsen-Anhalt

University, which may or may not be submitted for tender depending on the success of the group leader.
The Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg strives to promote equal opportunities in science. Female and
disabled applicants, qualified according to the above criteria, will be given preference over other candidates with
