If you are interested in joining our group, please email Dr Maxie Roessler with your CV and cover letter.
A 3-year PDRA position is available in the group as part of a Leverhulme Trust funded project, developing film-based electrochemical EPR for mechanistic investigations of membrane proteins. Please see here for further details and how to apply. Deadline for applications 21 February 2019. I also always welcome enquiries from outstanding candidates to support applications for independent postdoctoral fellowships or short-term visits. Examples include Marie-Sklodovska-Curie fellowships, and Newton International Fellowships. Short-term funding opportunities are available through the RSC, the DAAD and the Fulbright Commission.
International PhD scholarship opportunities
We are keen to support outstanding international students to apply for international scholarships. Funding opportunities include Science Without Borders (Ciencia sem Fronteiras), the Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC), CONACYT, the Pakistan Higher Education Commission, the Islamic Development Bank and Commonwealth Scholarships. Please see below for details on currently advertised projects:
- Combining biophysical and synthetic chemistry to decipher a key enzyme in respiration (in collaboration with Dr. Chris Jones at QMUL)
- Increasing plant stress tolerance by unraveling and exploiting the mechanism of the photosynthetic NDH complex (in collaboration with Dr. Guy Hanke at QMUL)
- Biocatalysis at the Nanoscale
- Understanding how (bio)molecular machines work - we are looking to recruit an outstanding Masters level graduate in Chemistry or a related subject, with a strong interest in developing and applying novel (bio)chemical and EPR spectroscopic tools to advance biology. The position is fully funded for 3.5 years (UK/EU students) and candidates should get in touch via e-mail with CV and cover letter. Click here to find out more about this funded PhD opportunity.
We have at least one master's students joining the group every year (CHE750 research project) and BSc research projects (SBC600) are also normally available.
If you are interested in joining the group over the summer, opportunities include the RSC Undergraduate Research Bursaries,Biochemical Society Summer Studentships and Wellcome Trust Scholarships. We also welcome enquiries from exchange students. Possible funding may be available, for example, through the DAAD or Erasmus + (we have hosted students from both of these schemes).
