Current Vacancies & Studentships
Department of Pharmacology
Post-doctoral position - Biochemical research on multidrug resistance
A post-doctoral position is available for up to 2.5 years in the Department of Pharmacology, University of Cambridge, in the research group led by Dr Hendrik W. van Veen. This group studies the molecular mechanisms of recognition and transport of chemotherapeutic drugs by efflux pumps from pathogenic bacteria and cancer cells.
The project will focus on the molecular mechanisms of tripartite drug efflux pumps, such as AcrAB-TolC in Escherichia coli, and will involve measurements of substrate transport and the application of biochemical and electrophysiological techniques in cells and artificial membrane vesicle systems. The project is funded by a programme grant of the International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO).
Applicants should be highly motivated, enthusiastic individuals, capable of thinking and working independently, with experience in the biochemistry of membrane proteins. Candidates should have or shortly expect to obtain a PhD in a related subject.
