We invite applications for a 4-years PhD position at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. The project deals with i) high-resolution studies of the mode of action of powerful membrane-active antibiotics in their native cellular environment and ii) the rational design of improved antibiotics.
The project is embedded in a highly collaborative setting at the interface between structural biology, chemical biological, and medical chemistry. The project follows-up on highly successful research lines that we could establish over the last couple of years.
We offer access to state-of-the-art NMR machines (950, 900, 800, 700 MHz). Moreover, a 1200 MHz machine will be installed soon. The 800 and 400 MHz magnets are equipped for DNP. The candidate will have access to a well-equipped molecular biology lab, as well as well-equipped facilities for the design of antibiotics. Furthermore, we are located in the Bijvoet Center, where access to other high-end structural biology equipment is readily available.
Applicants should have a degree in Biochemistry/Biophysics or a related discipline. Experience in molecular biology is highly desirable. Experience in NMR (solution or solids) is a plus, but not required. The starting date is in the beginning of 2019.
The candidate is offered a full-time position for 4 years. The gross monthly salary starts at €2,266 in the first year, and ends at €2,897 in the fourth year (scale P Collective Labour Agreement Dutch Universities). The salary is supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8% and an end-of-year bonus of 8,3% per year. In addition we offer: a pension scheme, a partially paid parental leave, flexible employment conditions. The research group will provide the candidate with necessary support on all aspects of the project. More information is available on the website.
