PhD position in Dynamic Protein Modifications in Neuronal Physiology and Pathophysiology, University of Strathclyde, UK
A 3-year PhD project is available in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) at the University of Strathclyde. This PhD project will investigate how different post-translational modifications affect the function of neuronal proteins and whether disruption of these processes is associated with neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease. This project is a collaborative PhD project between Professor Luke Chamberlain at University of Strathclyde and Dr Kenny Chung at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST, China). While this project will be conducted primarily at University of Strathclyde, the student will spend at least 6 months at HKUST to acquire new skills and produce data that will contribute to his/her PhD.
Interested candidates should send their application to Professor Luke Chamberlain (firstname.lastname@example.org
The project will start around 1st October 2017; closing date for application is 28th February 2017.
