Ph.D position is available in the field of Peptide Biochemistry in the Department of Medical Science, Graduate School and Department of Cellular & Molecular Medicine, School of Medicine, Chosun University, Gwangju 501-759, Republic of Korea
The increasing antibiotics resistance of micro-organisms is major threat to global public health issue. A very few new treatments are in development, and an improved alternative treatments are needed. It is proven that pathogens cannot gain resistance towards antimicrobial peptides. This project will investigate the effectiveness and mode of action of novel or designed synthetic antimicrobial peptides. This project will investigate how the structure of these peptides influences their function. The study will be carried out using diverse techniques like circular dichroism spectroscopy, spectrofluorophotometer, HPLC, Confocal Microscopy, Scanning electron microscopy etc.
The ideal candidates have:
– A strong commitment to high-quality research.
– A strong interest in Peptide Biochemistry.
– Molecular cell Biology, Biotechnology, Microbiology background.
– Handling above mentioned instruments is advantage.
Masters in .
Experience in Handling Mammalian & microbial cell lines, is desirable
IELTS: Minimum 6.5
TOEFL: Minimum IBT 85
Formal applications should be addressed to Mr. Rajasekaran (firstname.lastname@example.org), including:
– An Covering letter,
