PhD: Organic synthesis and Chemical Biology
Taken en verantwoordelijkheden
The project entails the synthesis of new quenched fluorescent activity-based probes for serine proteases and the application in imaging. This challenging project will have a main focus on organic synthesis, involving various forms of solution phase and solid phase chemistry, but at a later project stage will also contain biochemical evaluation of probes, microscopy and FACS analysis. The position is available from the beginning of 2017, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. Talented and motivated students who will finish their MSc degree spring 2017 are also encouraged to apply soon.
- Experience with solution and solid phase synthesis & purification methods
- A strong interest in biochemistry
- Experience with biochemistry techniques or fluorescent microscopy is a plus, but no necessity
- Ambitious, motivated, creative and practically skillful
