PhD position in the UK

I have an opening for a PhD student in my lab at the University of East Anglia, UK, to study the TARP protein from Chlamydia by NMR and other structural techniques.

Sexually transmitted Chlamydia can lead to complications such as inflammatory disease and infertility. Chlamydia is an obligatory intracellular parasite, and has developed very efficient mechanisms to enter the host cells, sometimes referred to as “parasite-specified phagocytosis”.
This process of cell invasion is not yet well understood. After attaching to the cell surface, Chlamydia recruits actin to the site of invasion to form an actin-rich pedestal at the site of entry. TARP (translocated actin-recruiting phosphoprotein) is translocated from Chlamydia into the cytoplasm of the host cell in the early stages of invasion, using the type III secretion machinery. During this process, it becomes accessible to the extracellular medium, making it a possible target for drug or vaccine development. The N-terminal region of TARP contains a number of Tyr-rich domains that are phosphorylated inside the host cell, while the C-terminal region is capable of nucleating the formation of actin filaments.
To study TARP, this project applies protein expression and purification, associated to structural techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography, which are very powerful for understanding molecular interactions at the atomic level. We aim to elucidate how the structural aspects of TARP allow its interaction with actin, and how that leads to the mechanism by which TARP recruits actin to the invasion site and nucleates its polymerisation. A more effective understanding of the initial steps of cell invasion by Chlamydia can lead to more efficient methods for prevention and control of infection.

Postdoctoral Position in Protein NMR Spectroscopy

The Protein NMR research group of Dr. Lars T. Kuhn at the DFG Research Center for Molecular Physiology of the Brain (CMPB; and the Cluster of Excellence "Microscopy at the Nanometer Range" of the University of Goettingen (Germany), Faculty of Medicine, is offering a Postdoctoral Position in Protein NMR Spectroscopy, starting from 1 January 2009 for initially two years with an optional extension for another two to three years at the end of the first period.

The research of the prospective candidate will focus on the characterization and the dynamic behaviour of the structures of native and non-native states of proteins that are involved in the emergence of neurodegenerative diseases. Furthermore, our group undertakes the analysis of biologically active peptides and small model systems, with emphasis on determining their different conformations under changing experimental conditions together with their folding behaviour. For these purposes, NMR spectroscopy and complementary techniques for the identification of protein structural elements, e.g. CD polarimetry, are being employed. The protein NMR facility includes dedicated state-of-the-art "high field" NMR spectrometers at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry (Göttingen) ( in the laboratory of Prof. Dr. Christian Griesinger and fully equipped biochemistry "wet lab" facilities for protein expression and purification.

A highly motivated researcher with a Ph.D. in biochemistry, structural biology, or a related discipline, with evidence of productive and independent contributions in science, will be the preferred candidate for this position. The applicant should be familiar with the principles and practice of multidimensional protein NMR spectroscopy and structure determination, and should have previous experience with protein expression and purification. As the group's working philosophy strongly encourages independent thinking, successful candidates will be invited to develop their own ideas and research objectives within the framework of the group's field of research.

The University of Goettingen is an equal opportunity employer and encourages female candidates and handicapped individuals to apply. Applications should include a meaningful CV together with the names and electronic mail addresses of up to three referees and should be sent by regular mail to: Mr. Andreas Bock, University of Goettingen, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Neuro- and Sensoryphysiology, Humboldtallee 23, 37073 Goettingen, Germany, or as single pdf-file via e-mail to: by the beginning of October 2008.

Best wishes,

Quality control of therapeutic proteins by NMR

The use of recombinant proteins in human health care is a growing field, characterized by a rapid progression with 13% of the total drug market. Hormones, vaccines and blood coagulation factors are the first applications of proteins in human health. The growing number of molecules together with the increasing number of compagnies that are producing therapeutic proteins call for a reinforcement of the quality controls for this kind of drugs. NMR is a powerful tool to investigate the chemical structure of proteins together with their three dimensional fold. This project aims at developing new methods for spectral acquisition and analysis allowing specific spectral signatures to be identified for each therapeutic protein. This project will be developed in collaboration with the NMRTec society. This project has received the support from the pôle de compétitivité "Innovations thérapeutiques".
Interested by biophysical and biocomputing methods, the student will use the most recent methods of biomolecular NMR, usually used to study the three-dimensional structures of proteins. After having familiarized himself with these techniques, it will adapt these methods to the acquisition of protein spectra within their commercial formulation. He will interact with software developers in order to define the quality criteria and to automate the spectra acquisition and their interpretation.
With this subject, the student will get access to a rather broad range of skills in biophysics and protein chemistry. He will also get familiar with the fast growing field of drug quality control.

The effect of radiation damage on the structure and durability of silicon carbide.

The prevention of radioactive contamination of the biosphere by the products of nuclear fission is a major concern for the nuclear industry and governments holding inventories of surplus or waste nuclear materials. An approach may be taken where the retention of fission products and actinides over the long term (repository lifetimes) is engineered into the nuclear fuel design. Silicon carbide coated nuclear fuels are one of these novel fuels. The project involves a detailed assessment of the radiation stability of the fuel coatings, primarily through the application of novel nuclear magnetic resonance methods[1], but also using X-ray absorption spectroscopy, mechanical analysis and molecular dynamics modelling. The student will be expected to interact extensively with European partners in the Euratom F-Bridge project at the Paul Scherrer Institute (Switzerland), EC JRC Institute for Transuranium Elements, Karlsruhe (Germany), CNRS Orléans (France), CEA Cadarache (France), NRG Petten (Netherlands). The position is suitable for those with first degrees in and earth sciences, materials science, physics, chemistry.
