The Department of Biosciences at Aston University has recently been awarded the EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie funded COFUND Doctoral Programme entitled MemTrain (Cell Membranes in Industrial Processes Training).  Over five years, MemTrain will train 12 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs; within 4 years of Masters qualification) who will undertake a PhD in an area of research within the remit of Aston Membrane Protein and Lipid Research Group (AMPL).  The Programme is coordinated by Dr Alan Goddard.

Peak Proteins is one of 11 industrial partners co-supervising and training candidates with similar partnerships between industry and academic groups at Aston University, all focussing on different aspects of membrane protein biology. The project with Peak Proteins will centre on methods to determine whether membrane proteins we purify for structural and biophysical characterisation are in their correctly folded and fully functional states.

The closing date is 30th June 2019.  Interested? Read more about the COFUND MemTrain Fellow vacancy and the AMPL.  Independently, Peak Proteins also has two current vacancies for a Senior Protein Scientist and a Cell Culture Scientist.
