[ccp4bb] Fully funded MSD (Masters by Research) studentships at the University of Essex

Dear CCP4bbers,

I would be grateful if you could pass details of the below studentships to any interested final year undergraduates. 

Many thanks,


Fully Funded Christine Desty MSD positions

These scholarships are for a one year research-based Master’s degree (MSD) that have all fees paid and a stipend of ~£15,000. The full list of projects and information on how to apply is available here:
This project aims to characterise novel copper enzymes from archaea that may represent a missing link in the global nitrogen cycle. The project will encompass biochemistry, structural biology and microbiology. Supervised by Dr Mike Hough, Dr Corinne Whitby, Dr Richard Strange and Dr Jonathan Worrall. 

This project will involve the optimisation of an enzyme for the production of biofuels - and is directly relevant to industrial biotechnology. Supervised by Dr Jonathan Worrall and Dr Mike Hough. 

In this project you will characterise the role of DMSP lyase enzymes in organisms from tropical reefs. Supervised by Dr Michael Steinke, Dr Jonathan Worrall and Dr Mike Hough. 

This project will use novel X-ray crystallography methods to screen for the binding of drug-like molecules to a cancer target protein. This will involve molecular biology, biochemistry and structural biology and is supervised by Dr Mike Hough and Dr Filippo Prischi. 

The application deadline is Wednesday, April 24.
