[ccp4bb] Ph.D. Student Position available at the Structural Biology Unit - CIC bioGUNE - The Basque Country, SPAIN

A 4 years Ph.D. Student position funded by FPI-MINECO, is currently available at the Structural Glycobiology Group, Structural Biology Unit, CIC bioGUNE, The Basque Country, Spain (see http://www.cicbiogune.es/).  

The Structural Glycobiology Group (https://sites.google.com/site/guerinlab/home) investigates the structural determinants and the modulation of substrate specificity of proteins involved in the biosynthesis/degradation and modification of glycans. We use a multidisciplinary approach including X-ray Crystallography, Small Angle X-ray Scattering, Electron Microscopy, Protein Biophysics, Protein Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, to elucidate mechanistic aspects of these processes at the molecular level.

We are seeking a highly motivated candidate, with a Master Degree in Structural Biology, Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Pharmacy, Physics or related fields, and a clear interest in Structural Biology/Glycans/Bacterial pathogenesis. Candidates should submit a CV, a copy of their academic records as well as the average grade of their finished studies, and the e-mail addresses of potential references, no later than August 20th, to Prof. Marcelo Guerin at mrcguerin@gmail.com
