About the Project
The successful applicant will be a talented biochemist or chemist with enthusiasm for chemistry, chemical biology, and molecular biology. They will work at the forefront of chemical and synthetic biology and will develop advanced skills in chemical synthesis, various molecular biology and analytical techniques, including molecular cloning, protein expression and purification, gel electrophoresis, western blotting, HPLC, Circular Dichroism (CD) spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy. The research work will be performed in the Chemical and Synthetic Biology laboratories housed in the School of Chemistry, University of East Anglia under the supervision of Dr Amit Sachdeva.
Applicants should have a minimum of a 2.1 degree in Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, Chemical Biology or Chemistry.
