Summary of Job Purpose and Principal Duties
We invite applications for the above position from scientists with outstanding potential who wish to pursue an ambitious and exciting research programme aimed at furthering our understanding of the role of protein ubiquitylation in cell regulation and human disease.
Summary of Job Purpose
The bacterium Bacillus subtilis is a single celled Gram-positive soil bacterium that can exist as part of an integrated, multicellular community called a biofilm.
A post providing molecular biology support within the MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit has become available.
A postdoc position is available immediately in the group of Gordon Simpson at the College of Life Sciences in Dundee, Scotland. The aim of this position is to annotate and assign function to non-coding Arabidopsis RNAs.
Applications are sought for Principal Investigators in the Division of Biological Chemistry and Drug Discovery, with strong research interests in biochemistry, molecular biology and/ or structural biology applied to infectious or orphan diseases; or computational chemistry applied to drug discovery. The successful applicant is expected to develop collaborations within the Division of Biological Chemistry and Drug Discovery and more widely within the College of Life Sciences and University of Dundee.
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position to work with Dr Matthias Trost to study signalling pathways by targeted quantitative mass spectrometry. Cellular signalling pathways are deregulated in a large number of human diseases. For this reason, protein kinases have become the pharmaceutical industry’s most important class of drug target.
