Research Associate in Supramolecular Chemistry, Anion Recognition and Transport
Division/School School of Chemistry
Contract type Open Ended
Working pattern Full time
Salary £33,199 - £37,345 per annum
Closing date for applications 20-Dec-2018
The University of Bristol are looking to appoint a research associate for a postdoctoral position in the group of Prof. A. P. Davis, on the MRC-funded project: “Anion Carriers for Channel Replacement Therapy”.
The role is part of a collaborative programme involving Prof. D. N. Sheppard (University of Bristol Physiology and Pharmacology) and Prof. P. A. Gale (University of Sydney, Australia). The aim is to demonstrate the potential of transmembrane anion carriers as treatments for channelopathy conditions such as cystic fibrosis.
The research will involve the design and synthesis of anion carriers for biological testing, as well as studies towards a comprehensive understanding of their mechanism of action.
Applicants should possess expertise in organic synthesis and measurement aspects of supramolecular chemistry. Experience working with bilayer membranes (e.g. vesicles) would be an advantage.
For further information on the research group see: http://www.bris.ac.uk/chemistry/people/anthony-p-davis/overview.html (official web page) or http://davis.chm.bris.ac.uk/ (group web page).
The closing date for applications is 11:59pm on the 20th December 2018.
We appreciate and value difference, seeking to attract, develop and retain a diverse mix of talented people that will contribute to the overall success of Bristol and help maintain our position as one of the world’s leading universities.
