An MRC-funded 3-year postdoctoral research position is available at the University of Leeds, UK, to study dynamic mechanisms of activation of receptor tyrosine kinases by cancer-associated mutations. The project will combine experimental protein biochemistry, protein NMR and biophysics techniques with state-of-the-art computational metadynamics simulations. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate experience in some or all of these areas, and an enthusiasm and aptitude to learn rapidly in others.

The departments of Analytical Sciences and of predevelopment Sciences of Sanofi R&D (LGCR AnSci & PDB Vitry-sur-Seine, France) and the ICSN (Institut de Chimie des Substances Naturelles - CNRS) (1) are seeking a PhD student in the field of structural chemistry and biology.  The proposed PhD research project will focus on the characterization of therapeutic peptides in lipid formulation by structural and calorimetric techniques (NMR, DLS, CD, ITC, …).

The laboratory Membrane Biophysics and NMR at the University of Strasbourg has an opening for a PhD position with the goal to investigateantimicrobial peptides associated with membranes or with polymers used in medical applications. The increasing spread of multiresistant pathogens inside and outside hospitals becomes a dangerous threat to human health. Immediate action is needed to overcome this problem and this project aims at preventing such infection in first place by protecting medical devices from bacterial invasion.

A PhD position in online NMR spectroscopy is available at the Laboratory of Engineering Thermodynamics in Kaiserslautern, Germany within the framework of a research project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). More specifically this project will focus on expanding the use of NMR spectroscopy for reaction and process monitoring. Currently, NMR signals acquired for reaction and process monitoring often display very complex characteristics, making their analysis with conventional methods difficult and error-prone.

The Department of Materials- and Environmental Chemistry (MMK) is one of the largest departments at the Faculty of Natural sciences with about 140 employees. The extensive research activities of MMK, hosting the Berzelii Center EXSELENT for development of nanoporous materials for catalysis, span over Materials and Solid-State Chemistry focusing on different classes of materials; e.g. ceramics and glasses, self-assembled and porous materials, and soft matter.

A post-doctoral position in protein NMR is available in the group of Victor Muñoz at the National Biotechnology Center, Madrid, Spain, to work on a research project funded by the ERC Advanced Grant MOLRHEOSTAT.

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral scientist to work on an exciting project focused on understanding the solution behaviour of concentrated monoclonal antibodies. The study will involve use of NMR spectroscopy (1H and 19F) and protein labelling for characterizing protein solutions and mixtures thereof. You will have a PhD (or equivalent) in NMR spectroscopy, biochemistry and/or biophysics, or in a related discipline. Experience is required in protein NMR spectroscopy and basic protein chemistry (protein purification, concentration and labelling, e.g.

The Department of Biophysics at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is seeking applications for the position of a tenure track Assistant or Associate Professor to become a productive and enthusiastic member of the EPR Spectroscopy and Molecular Biophysics team.

Framework. In France, bituminized waste products (BWPs) have been produced to immobilize precipitation sludges resulting from effluent decontamination operations in nuclear fuel reprocessing facilities. Part of these BWPs is intended for being stored in geological conditions. Since water should resaturate the geological storage site, studying the behavior of BWPs under leaching conditions is a key point to describe the long term behavior of these wastes in geological storage conditions.
