PhD studentship, Massey University, New Zealand

PhD studentship, Massey University, New Zealand

A PhD studentship is available to apply state-of-the-art NMR techniques, along with other biophysical approaches and computational analyses, to protein and RNA structure and dynamics. This project is a collaboration with the University of Sydney, where complementary Small Angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) studies will be performed, and with the New York Structural Biology Center, which houses spectrometers up to 900 MHz. The Massey University Centre for Structural Biology houses a 700 MHz Bruker Avance NMR spectrometer with cryoprobe in addition to 500, 400 and 200 MHz spectrometers. Support is via a grant from the Royal Society of New Zealand.

The PhD fellowship carries a tax exempt stipend of NZD 23,000 per anna. There is no teaching requirement, and all student tuition and fees are covered by the grant. Students with exceptional undergraduate marks may be eligible for a University Scholarship which provides an increased stipend level.

The nominal closing date is 30 September 2010, however applications will be reviewed as they are received, and will be accepted until the position is filled.

Interested parties should email a cover letter, c.v. and contact information for three referees to Associate Professor Steven Pascal.
