We seek a motivated individual to work as a protein and RNA engineer on the BrisSynBio-funded MitoCRISPR project that aims to develop new gene editing tools targeted to mitochondrial DNA. You will collaborate with an interdisciplinary team heading by Prof. Mark Szczelkun, Dr. Jon Lane, Prof. Ian Collinson and Dr. Marc van der Kamp.
You will re-engineer, purify, functionally-reconstitute and biophysically analyse CRISPR proteins and RNA, working alongside the other MitoCRISPR team members. The novel tools you develop will open up the mitochondrial genome to the exciting possibilities of CRISPR manipulation.
Applicants should hold, or expect to hold shortly, a PhD in biochemistry, biophysics, chemistry or a related discipline.
Applicants with interests in protein engineering, genome biology, membrane transport, mitochondria, and/or synthetic biology are encouraged to apply.
Informal enquiries can be made to Prof. Mark Szczelkun, 0117 3312158, firstname.lastname@example.org
