About the Project
Skills training will be provided in molecular biology, protein engineering and design, genetic selection and screens including phage display, mass spectrometry, microscopy, and bioinformatics. According to the development of the project there may also be the chance to learn structure determination by X-ray crystallography.
The major part of the studentship will be carried out in Oxford University Department of Biochemistry. For the industrial placement (of no less than 12 weeks duration), the student will be trained and supported by Dr. Mike Bedford at AB Vista at their headquarters in Marlborough, UK. At this site there are team members with a range of expertise, including on the industrial use of proteins for GI health, microbiome analysis, and business-related training. The headquarters in Marlborough is supported by field sites locally and at other sites in the UK for testing of GI health. According to the needs of the project, the student may also be given the opportunity to work at AB Enzymes in Rajamäki Finland or Darmstadt Germany, a partner company of AB Vista, and one of the world’s largest recombinant protein manufacturers with both R&D and manufacturing operations.
Attributes of suitable applicants:
Candidates should have or shortly be about to complete an honours degree in the biological or biomedical sciences (biochemistry, biology, pharmacology etc.) with a predicted or achieved grade of 2.1 or above, a Master’s degree, or substantive relevant work experience.
This project is supported through the Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) studentship programme. The student recruited to this project will join a cohort of students enrolled in the DTP’s interdisciplinary training programme, and will participate in the training and networking opportunities available through the DTP
