The School of Pure and Applied Natural Sciences is part of the Faculty of Natural Science and Engineering. The research activities within this multidisciplinary school include the areas of Biochemistry, Biotechnology, Biomedical Sciences, Organic chemistry, Microbiology, Aquatic ecology, Mathematics and Physics. The research group of Biotechnology now seeks a PhD student for studies on discovery of new drug candidates characterized by transient binding to receptors or other molecular targets.
Project title: Transient drugs as a new concept for drug discovery.
The research project deals with the exploration and design of drug candidates that only bind weakly (transiently) to selected molecular targets. Bioanalytical screening platforms will be used based on miniaturized, parallel and high throughput separations of various molecular libraries. Applications will be focused on disorders in the cardiovascular and central nervous system. The project is part of a larger collaboration with the pharmaceutical and bioanalytical industry both nationally and abroad and with academic institutions in Sweden. The selected PhD student will have unique opportunities to gain deep knowledge and skills of the drug discovery process and will be familiarized with a whole range of bioanalytical techniques used in an academic and industrial biotechnology/biochemistry environment.
Applicants should have a Masters Degree (240hp/240ECTS) in a subject area of relevance for the present project. Documented training and experience of Bioanalytical chemistry, Medicinal chemistry and Biochemistry will be an advantage. Interest in mathematics/computational work is a plus. Basic requirements for post-graduate studies are laid out in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance (Högskoleförordningen), Chapter 7.
The Ph.D. studies are limited to 4 years (100%) but may be extended to 5 years through teaching at the undergraduate level. Successful completion of the post-graduate studies will lead to a PhD in Biochemistry/Biotechnology. During the first half of the studies (two years full-time) you will be paid by a post-graduate study scholarship (“utbildningsbidragâ€?) and a Ph.D. position (â€?doktorandanställningâ€?) starting from the beginning of the third year. The starting point for the Ph.D. education is flexible and may be negotiated.
For further information please contact contact Professor Sten Ohlson at +46-706206933 ( ) or Personnel Officer Leif Eriksson at +46-480446028 ( ).
Union representatives may be contacted via the university switchboard at +46-480 44 60 00.
Application should be addressed to the registrar at the address: Registrator, University of Kalmar, S-391 82 Kalmar, Sweden, and should arrive no later than 30 April, 2008. Mark your application with reference number 2.2-185/08.
The application (in English) should contain a CV, documentations of exams and grades, a copy of an undergraduate thesis, a list of at least 2 referees (with telephone, fax, and/or e-mail), at least two letters of recommendation, a description of motivation and experience relevant to the research project and any other documentation (including industrial experience) that the applicant would like to present.
