Oferta de doctorado en biomedicina (Nueva Zelanda)

Exploring a new drug target in the fight against cancer

Project description: You will conduct basic biomedical research primarily using baker's yeast as model (no experimental animals), to contribute to an HRC funded project, aimed to explore a potential drug target for its suitability in blocking a cellular pathway in the fight against cancer. This project provides a unique opportunity for you to develop skills in various disciplines, such as Genetics, Biochemistry, Cell biology, Molecular Biology, and/or Structural Biology.

A scholarship is available covering tuition fees and living expenses.

Preferred skills and qualifications: MSc, MPhil or BSc(Hons) in
Biochemistry, Molecular Biology/Genetics, Structural Biology or
equivalent. You need to have marks of 75% or better. Knowledge and
hands-on experience in computational analysis of protein structures,
cloning, PCR, recombinant protein expression and purification, and/or
co-precipitation studies, are advantageous. However, far more
important are your passion in continuously acquiring knowledge and
skills, your genuine interest in science and conducting research,
being self-motivated, ‘going the extra mile’ and being determined to
succeed. Working towards a PhD degree is hard work but very
rewarding. PhD students graduating from the Sattlegger lab have
secured prestigious positions, such as postdoc positions at the highly
reputed National Institutes of Health, USA, and at a Medical
University in Sweden, or a Research & Development position at a large
Biopharma Company. You must start your studies April 2017 the latest,
preferably earlier than that.

How to apply: If you are interested in this PhD project, please email
your CV and academic transcripts, the names of at least two academic
references and a cover letter outlining your interest in this research
and gaining a PhD, and the expertise you have gained so far and may be
beneficial to your PhD studies, to Dr Evelyn Sattlegger,
e.sattlegger@massey.ac.nz. State 'PhD application’ in the subject
line. Applications will be accepted from Nov 25, 2016, until the
position is filled
