NMR position Glasgow

Characterisation of an endotoxin-sensing molecular switch

This project, in collaboration with Marine Biotech Limited, will examine the molecular recognition events that underlie the recognition of bacteria by Factor C, the initiator of the Horseshoe Crab’s innate defence system, using structural biology and biophysical techniques. The successful applicant will be a highly qualified and motivated graduate with a life sciences or chemistry degree and relevant experience. They will be trained in molecular biology, recombinant protein expression and purification, structural biology and biophysical techniques - in particular biomolecular NMR spectroscopy.
