Nury’s lab

Our team aims to better understand how membrane machines operate at the molecular scale, using structural biology. We mainly work with ion channels, and especially with pentameric neurotransmitter-gated channels.

Our projects mix state-of-the-art eukaryotic expression systems, solid biochemistry, biophysical characterization with two structural methods: X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM.

Our research is curiosity-driven, but focuses on membrane proteins that play crucial roles in health and disease. For example, current projects are related to nausea, depression and infertility.

Applications from scientists who like their job with passion and do it with rigour, at any career stage, will be considered with care. At the moment we rather look at profiles with knowledge of data treatment in either crystallography or EM and some inclination to computing.
