Elucidating protein-membrane interactions for improving protein purification processes


Insitute for Frontier Materials

About the Project

A fully-funded PhD position in molecular simulation in the team of Prof. Tiffany Walsh is available at Deakin University in the Institute for Frontier Materials, Geelong, starting as soon as possible. This is a 100% computational project.

In this project, molecular dynamics simulations will be used to provide a deeper comprehension of how proteins of relevance to CSL Ltd interact with novel membrane materials. Simulations will be used to predict the structure of the protein/membrane interface under industrially relevant conditions, which can be challenging to identify on the basis of experimental efforts alone. The outcomes of the project will complement a parallel experimental PhD project scheduled to soon commence, led by Prof Lingxue Kong.

We are looking for candidates with a strong background in physical chemistry and a strong undergraduate degree in Chemistry, Materials Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Molecular Physics or similar, preferably with experience in molecular simulation or computational chemistry.

Excellent communication skills, including a strong command of both written and verbal English, is an essential requirement – as a minimum, applicants must meet a IELTS level of 6.5 or more overall, with no individual score below 6.

Applicants are encouraged to contact Prof Walsh as soon as possible at .

Funding Notes

This scholarship is available for a maximum of 3.5 years. Stipend of $AU28,092 per annum tax exempt (2020 rate).
