PhD position – U of Leeds/Astbury Centre, UK

MRC-funded PhD – 4 years, Astbury Centre, University of Leeds (UK)

APPLICATION DEADLINE: THIS FRIDAY, 13th JANUARY

We have an open PhD position in my lab at the Astbury Centre, University of Leeds, UK, for a project starting in October 2023. The 4-year studentship is fully funded by the UK Medical Research Council (MRC).

The project uses NMR and other structural methods to investigate allosteric signalling mechanisms within fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) kinases. you will learn and use cutting-edge techniques including NMR, HDX mass spectrometry, EPR, and X-ray crystallography. As a candidate, you will preferably have an interest in, and aptitude for, structural molecular biology and computational and biophysical analysis. You will have access to the Astbury Biostructure Laboratory’s world-class infrastructure including ultra-high field NMR (cryoprobe-equipped 950 MHz Bruker Avance III HD) and structural mass spectrometry (Waters Synapt G2 with HDX plus Thermo Orbitrap UHMR).
