Applications are invited for a highly motivated and experienced postdoctoral researcher to join an active research group at the School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick supervised by a team headed by Prof Chris Dowson with Prof Frank von Delft at Oxford University and Diamond Light Source. The project, which has been recently supported by the Newton Fund, focuses on acquiring specific structural and biochemical data using a novel strategy of HT affinity crystallography, using robust crystals of well validated and novel antibacterial targets to identify either fragment-based inhibitors or inhibitors identified by crystallography directly from complex mixtures of natural products. This position is available for up to 18 months in the first instance and will involve substantive interactions with academic colleagues at Harwell and those in China.
