University of Cambridge Department of Chemistry
United Kingdom

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 1 year in the first instance.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate to join the group of Dr Bernardes at the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge to work on the ERC Starting Grant project named "A site-selective bioorthogonal approach to protein traffic, signalling and delivery". The grant aims to develop a new approach to the labelling and study of disease-associated proteins that are difficult to access with conventional protein labelling methods.

The successful candidate will perform reaction engineering in aqeous solution to apply in the context of site-selective protein and nucleic acid modification. This will consist of reaction optimisation and synthesis of suitable reagents, test the conditions developed at the protein/nucleic acid level, purify and characterise (mass spectrometry and biophysical measurements such as SPR and CD), and generation of bioactive conjugates.

The successful candidate will have (or be about to obtain) a PhD in chemical biology/synthetic chemistry. They will be highly motivated and able to work independently. Excellent organisational and interpersonal skills are required to ensure success in liaising with a large and diverse research team. Previous experience with bioconjugation and nucleic acids chemistry and charaterisation of conjugates by advanced mass spectrometry is desirable.
