Molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysical and functional studies of proteases and their inhibitors at the host-microbiome interface
INPhINIT, the new PhD programme from “La Caixa” Foundation, opens today the call to recruit 57 early-stage researchers to the top Spanish centres and units of research. The Structural Biology Unit, as a María de Maeztu unit of excellence, offers four PhD positions in structural biology cutting-edge research projects.
The aim of this programme is to support the talented young researchers and to foster the innovative and high-quality Spanish research. The researchers will enjoy a 3-year contract in a research centre among those awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (“Severo Ochoa” centres of excellence and “Maria de Maeztu” units of excellence) and the Spanish Ministry of Health (“Carlos III centres of excellence”) that offer a competitive environment to develop a research of excellence.
The student would be in charge of a project entailing cloning, overexpression and purification of such protein targets under the supervision of an experienced member of the lab. In addition or alternatively, she/he could participate in the biochemical, biophysical, functional, and structural characterization. The candidate should have strong marks and a very hard-working capacity, dedication and lab skills.
