Activities and responsibilities: We are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate interested in bioorganic chemistry and interdisciplinary research at the chemistry/biology interface. The project involves the development of methods for the chemical synthesis of highly phosphorylated protein structures from RNA polymerase II. Solid phase peptide synthesis and fragment ligation will be key methods. The candidate will develop bioassays for structure-affinity studies with readers and writers of the CTD code. The position includes tasks for the scientific qualification (doctorate).
Requirements: Master degree in the field of (bio)organic chemistry (preferably with very good grades); focus-specific training: theoretical and practical experience in peptide chemistry, experience in bioassays. The ideal candidate is familiar with interdisciplinary research approaches and has very good command in spoken and written English
