Posted on behalf of Prof. Stefan Knapp
Note that this is another PhD position (not the same one as previous post last week).
The Institute of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Goethe University Frankfurt, Germany, currently offers a position for a PhD student in the research group of Prof Knapp (http://www.uni-frankfurt.de/53483664/Knapp). The position is available from January and the appointment is funded for 3 years by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Innovative Training Networks (ITN) grant. PDZnet (Unraveling Principles of PDZ-mediated Cell Signaling).
The project is embedded into a highly interactive European training program involving internationally well recognized laboratories and companies. The advertised position aims to study the function and structure of modular proteins that organize multiple PDZ domains into supramodules. We will study the structure and substrate specificity of these multi-domain assemblies with the goal to elucidate their function in cellular signalling and to exploit the possibility for the development of protein interaction inhibitors targeting PDZ supramodules.
The ideal candidate would have a Master degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry or Biophysics and experience in protein biochemistry and protein _expression_. We are an international team and good knowledge of English as well as excellent communication skills will be essential. Female candidates are especially encouraged to apply. Precedence will be given to handicapped candidates at equal qualification.
The planned research will be done in a highly stimulating and international research environment, integrated in the life science campus Riedberg Interested candidates are encouraged to submit their CVs to the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date for application is 31st October 2016
Prof. Stefan Knapp.
