About the Project
All of our research is highly multidisciplinary, and this project is no exception. This studentship will provide opportunities to learn a wide range of techniques such as organic synthesis, peptide synthesis, computational modelling, and biophysical analysis methods such as peptide/protein NMR and circular dichroism, to name but a few. Prior experience of these methods is not essential, however a willingness to learn new skills is vital. This project will provide ample support for a future career at the interface between chemistry and biology, whether in academia or elsewhere. The project will also encourage the student to think creatively about how to solve problems, and the student will have significant latitude to shape the direction of the project.
Applicants should have a good degree (2i or above) in chemistry, biochemistry or a related discipline, and be highly motivated to carry out research at the chemistry/biology interface. Good communication skills are essential. The candidate will be required to use and modify computer code, so a willingness to learn coding is essential. Research experience and a demonstrated ability to work independently will be considered an advantage.
