Dear colleagues,

We have an opening for a PhD student to join us at the new X-ray crystallography
unit of the School of Biological Sciences, University of Liverpool.

This is a 4-year PhD Studentship funded by BBSRC. The candidate will work
towards understanding the mechanistic events that take place in muscle during
adaptation to force and its links to human disease. He/She will apply the full
range of techniques required for the structural elucidation of macromolecules
by X-ray crystallography, namely: cloning, protein expression and purification,
crystallization, X-ray data collection, computational approaches to model
calculation and model interpretation using bioinformatic tools. In addition,
the School counts with excellent NMR infrastructure, opening a range of
possibilities to combine NMR and crystallographic approaches.

Further details on this position can be found under

The project suits a biochemist/molecular biologist with strong interest in
structural biology. Starting date: October 2008.

Informal enquiries and applications (in the form of a comprehensive CV) should
