About This PhD Project

Project Description

Applications are invited for a 4 year PhD Studentship within the Department of Chemistry to start in Sept-Dec 2019.

The Studentship is funded for 4 years on a starting bursary at the standard research council rate, which is presently £17,009 per annum including London Allowance, and cover the full cost of Home/EU student tuition fees. Income tax is not payable on the stipend.


This scheme covers funding for Home/EU Students.

Project Description:

The research group of Dr. Manuel Müller in the Department of Chemistry at King’s College London is looking to offer a PhD studentship ( Our lab develops and applies chemical biology strategies to investigate how proteins are controlled by post-translational modifications. This PhD project aims to develop synthetic protein chemistry approaches to generate site-specifically modified proteins, and measure the functional consequences of these modifications in biochemical, biophysical and cell biological assays.

Student profile:

Applicants should hold an Msc in Biochemistry or Chemistry, and have an understanding of organic chemistry and biochemistry. Wet-lab experience in protein biochemistry and/or peptide synthesis will be a strong advantage. Candidates must have a fascination for interdisciplinary research, excellent communication skills and work well in a small team.


Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Manuel Müller () for informal inquiries.
