Specific recruitment criteria The PhD candidates must have a Master's degree in a field such as Biophysics, Bioinformatics, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Computer Science, Physics or related fields. Since a PhD position in the industrial field is different to a PhD in academia, the candidate has to be flexible and creative in dealing with challenging problems in a dynamic environment.
Proving to meet the criteria listed below strengthens the applications:
Hands-on experience in measuring protein-ligand interactions.
Experience with spectroscopic methods (e.g. fluorescence, circular dichroism etc.)
Firm grasp and understanding of protein interaction thermodynamics and kinetics
Keen interest in optical method/instrument development including data analysis /software development
Title: Resolving coarse-grained dynamic distance constraints of the transport cycle of NSS transporters using EPR spectroscopy University: University of East Anglia, UK PI: Fraser MacMillan Work location: University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
Specific recruitment criteria The PhD candidate must have a first degree in a Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysics, Physics, or a related field (equivalent to 2:1 or better 1st class classification). Training in magnetic resonance spectroscopic techniques will be an advantage. Enthusiasm to be a team player with excellent (English) communication skills is important, as the project includes collaboration with other PhD students using complementary experimental approaches. International applicants are required to provide evidence of proficiency in the English language, if English is not their first language. All research programmes within the Faculty of Science require an overall score of IELTS 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each individual component. The successful candidate will be enrolled in Science Graduate School within the Faculty of Science at UEA.
