Dear CCP4ers,
I am seeking candidates for a Ph.D. position in my lab to work on a biochemistry/molecular biology project. Could you possibly post the ad below?
Thanks a lot in advance,
Xavier

Ph.D. position in biochemistry / molecular biology

A position is available for a Ph.D. student to work in protein biochemistry and molecular biology. The hosting place is the Proteolysis Lab of the Molecular Biology Institute of Barcelona (IBMB) from the Higher Scientific Research Council (CSIC) in Barcelona (Spain).  The IBMB is located within the premises of the Barcelona Science Park (PCB), a major pole for excellence in research in biomedicine and biotechnology of the Barcelona area.

The candidate must be highly self-motivated and dedicated, be able to work independently but also to synergetically interact with other lab members, and have previous experience in protein biochemistry and molecular biology. Candidates should either already have a Master’s degree in a related discipline or be currently engaged in one. Tasks will include cloning, overexpression, and purification of proteins, as well as biochemical and biophysical assays of biotechnologically or biomedically relevant proteins.

Funding will be provided by an FPI fellowship from the Spanish Ministry of Science and Education (see link below). The tentative start of the fellowship and thus the position will be in late Summer or early Autumn 2021.

Interested persons should apply exclusively per e-mail as soon as possible and send a detailed CV, as well as a covering letter including motivation and contact details of two referees to F. Xavier Gomis-Rüth (xgrcri@ibmb.csic.es). International candidates are particularly welcomed. Preselected candidates will be invited to apply online through the link below. Unfortunately, the time frame for application is very short (13-27 October 2020).
