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.
The research group of Dr. Manuel Müller in the Department of Chemistry at King’s College London is looking to offer a PhD studentship (https://www.muellerlab-kcl.com/
). 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.
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 ([email protected]
) for informal inquiries.
