Research Fellow (Fixed-Term)

University of Nottingham - Life Sciences

Applications are invited for the above position to work on a US Department of Defence funded research project directed jointly by Prof. Peter E Shaw (Nottingham) and Prof. Manohar Ratnam (Detroit) relating to the development of ELK-1 targeted molecules as a new paradigm for prostate cancer treatment. The specific tasks for this role will involve probing the structural details of the ELK1-Androgen Receptor interface using innovative biochemical and mass spectrometric approaches that circumvent the lack of ordered structures in the two interacting domains.

Candidates must hold a PhD in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, or a related discipline, and have direct, practical experience in protein expression using insect cell systems, chromatography-based protein purification, protein mass spectrometry, and interpretation of LC-MS/MS data. Competence in standard molecular biology techniques is also required.

This full-time fixed-term post is available for 2 years from to 1st October 2017 until 30th September 2019.
