Supervisor - Professor Bostjan Kobe
The successful candidate will be working under the direct supervision of Prof Bostjan Kobe as part of the project that aims to understand the mechanisms of action of proteins containing TIR (Toll/interleukin-1 receptor) domains. The successful candidate will be involved in using recombinant protein expression and purification, structural biology techniques such as X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy, enzymatic assays and protein interaction analysis approaches. During the course of the PhD, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to attend (inter)national conferences to present their research. The candidate will start the project in 2021.
A working knowledge of relevant techniques, such as molecular cloning, protein expression and purification, protein characterization and protein crystallization would be of benefit to someone working on this project.
