About This PhD Project

Project Description

Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion. These catalytic activity assays will be conducted in vitro and in vivo in bacterial, mammalian, and plant cells. We look for candidates with broad expertise in molecular biology techniques preferably in protein purification and in vitro activity assays. Ample opportunities exist for training in molecular biology, synthetic biology, biotechnology, genetics, and plant molecular biology. Ambitious and self-motivated candidates are encouraged to apply.

Priority will be given to candidates with BS and or MS in biology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, and plant molecular biology.

Please send your CV, summary of research interests and technical portfolio in molecular biology, three references to Magdy Mahfouz
