PDRA position and PhD studentship available at University of Oxford

A Postdoctoral Research Assistantship is available to work on structural studies of membrane, peptides and drugs in using neutron diffraction, NMR and computer simulation in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Oxford (UK). This post is a fixed-term position of three years.

 

This multi-technique based project is suitable for an enthusiastic researcher interested in applying experimental and computational techniques to understand how peptide, proteins and lipids interact with water and other small molecule such as drugs and toxins in solution. The successful applicant to this post will be based in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Oxford and will work under the supervision of Dr. Sylvia McLain and will perform experiments at the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source (STFC, UK).   Applicants should possess a doctorate in physics, chemistry or related field. Previous experience in neutron scattering, particularly in diffraction techniques, or computer simulations will be at an advantage. Applicants should ideally but not necessarily have 1 to 2 years of postdoctoral experience.

Formal applications for this PDRA position should be made through the Oxford Biochemistry website - http://www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/aspsite/index.asp?sectionid=vacancies&job=br537

A related 3-year EPSRC PhD studentship is also available in the same group starting in October 2013 for investigations using neutron diffraction, NMR and computation to investigate the specific interactions between water, peptides and lipids of the membrane bilayer with a view towards understanding their role in biomolecular structure and function. The successful candidate should have an undergraduate degree in biochemistry, physics, chemistry or a related field.   Further information can be found and  applications for studentship can be submitted via http://www.bioch.ox.ac.uk/aspsite/index.asp?pageid=945

Informal enquires with CV are welcome and should be directed to Dr. Sylvia McLain ( Esta dirección electrónica esta protegida contra spambots. Es necesario activar Javascript para visualizarla )
