Metal catalysis for the chemical modification of proteins in living cells
|Sub Research Field:
Are you interested in working as part of a collaborative team to carry out cross-disciplinary research at the interface of metal (photo)catalysis, medicinal chemistry, and protein biochemistry?
This role is ideal for someone interested in developing new metal catalysts for the chemical modification of proteins, and studying their mechanism of action in vitro and in cellulo using a combination of cutting edge spectroscopic and biophysical techniques. This position is funded by “La Caixa” Foundation, La Caixa Junior Leader Fellowship.
This project will lead into exciting new tools that can be applied in the wider field of chemical biology and medicine.
You should provide evidence in your application that you meet the following criteria.:
Experience in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of coordination compounds (including NMR, MS, optical spectroscopy).
Ability to manage your own independent original research project, including critical analysis and problem solving.
Ability and willingness to work in a collaborative, cross-disciplinary research environment.
Experience with NMR and / or MS-based proteomics or experience with structural elucidation of metallodrug/target biomolecule adducts;
Experience in homogeneous catalysis;
Experience in photophysics and photochemistry of metal complexes;
MSc in the field of inorganic / bioinorganic chemistry.
