This is an industrial partnership award with Dstl (UK). Unfortunately because of the conditions of the funding, we can only consider UK nationals.
The position will be using structural and biochemical methods to characterise potential drug targets from the biosecurity pathogen Coxiella burnetii. We will use X-ray crystallography and single-particle cryo-EM as necessary to solve the scientific challenges. The student appointed will have the opportunity to work with Dstl and experts in complementary techniques at the Living Systems Institute.
