Job Description

The successful candidate will work with A/P Henry Mok Yu Keung on structural and functional characterization of proteins under a project on “Barriers and Busters that determine viral infection in mosquitoes”. The main responsibilities of the position include:

  1. To determine the structural mechanisms of proteins in biological and physical barriers in mosquitoes and the mechanisms by which arboviruses penetrate these barriers to achieve infection.
  2. To develop transgenic mosquitoes with multiple enhanced barrier genes that are resistant to arbovirus infection.

Qualifications

  • Skills:
    1. Sub-cloning, expression and purification of recombinant proteins;
    2. Determination of protein structures by X-ray crystallography and NMR;
    3. Characterization of protein interaction and function using biophysical techniques.
  • Experience:  
    1. Protein structure determination using X-ray or NMR spectroscopy;
    2. Structural and functional characterization of protein interaction;
    3. Handling of mosquitoes.
