[ccp4bb] 3 PhD studentships in the Centre for Structural Medicine, QMUL

Could you please forward the following PhD studentship opportunities to suitable candidates?

The newly formed “Centre for Structural Medicine” (joint between the Schools of Biological and Chemical Sciences and Medicine and Dentistry) is seeking PhD applicants for their fully funded mini Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) on Overcoming drug-resistant microbial infection – Targeting the power of Molecular Machines to start in September 2020.  Our Centre incorporates 13 academics and their research groups (each student will be jointly supervised).

Deadline: 31st January 2020

The PhD students will investigate the architecture and function of molecular machines essential for microbial infection. These will aim to pinpoint novel and functionally critical protein-protein interactions, evolve/screen for biological therapeutics that inhibit these interactions and thus discover new lead antimicrobials. The mini-CDT will be divided into the following themes: molecular machines important (i) pre-infection, (ii) during infection and (iii) post-infection.

Funding: Three studentships are available. The studentships are open to UK/EU applicants and are funded by Queen Mary University of London. The funding will cover tuition fees, and provide an annual tax-free maintenance allowance for 3 years at the Research Council rate (£17,009 in 2019/20).

Informal enquries can be sent to Dr Ewan Main (e.main@qmul.ac.uk). Formal applications should be submitted through the online form by the stated deadline. Applicants should identify their intended funding source as 'CfSM mini-CDT' within the online application form to ensure it is clear that they wish to be considered for these studentships.
