PhD Studentship in Shotgun Proteomics in the Biological and Environmental Systems Group

Department of Chemical and Process Engineering
University of Sheffield
A studentship is available to develop high throughput "shotgun" proteomics using microfluidics as part of a large team research effort. Applications are invited from students currently studying for, or who have already obtained, a degree in biological sciences, bio(chemical) engineering or allied subjects and have gained, or expect to obtain, at least an upper second class honours degree. Students should have a strong interest in biochemical techniques, microreactor technologies, and mass spectrometry, possibly but not necessarily in a biochemical engineering context.

The successful student will join a rapidly expanding group, following the appointment of Professor Phillip Wright to lead a new area of research in Systems Biology and Engineering. His group has just received more than £750K of funding for laboratory and analytical facilities. It is likely that the individual appointed would also work closely with the University's Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (MBB) and the Department of Engineering Materials. The successful applicant will receive the standard research council maintenance award.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor P Wright, tel: 0114 2227577 or Email:
