We are looking for a highly motivated scientist to join our group to understand the mechanism of chromosome segregation in the kinetoplastid parasite Trypanosoma brucei. The aim of the project is to characterise one or more kinetoplastid kinetochore proteins in Trypanosoma brucei using a variety of techniques including cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology and/or mathematical modelling.
The successful candidate will join a group led by Dr Bungo Akiyoshi at the Welcome Centre for Cell Biology at the University of Edinburgh, and will use a variety of techniques to characterise unconventional kinetoplastid kinetochores. The successful candidate will have an opportunity to obtain a PhD, with funding provided to cover UK rate fees.
