Wellcome Trust 3 Year Postdoctoral Fellowship
Nucleotide Excision Repair in the Archaea
The successful applicant will join a group studying DNA repair pathways
in thermophilic archaea, which are an excellent model for the
equivalent processes in eukaryotes. Novel proteins and enzymes involved
in these pathways are being identified and characterised. This project
will focus on archaeal homologues of human repair proteins from the
Nucleotide Excision Repair pathway. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in 
the Life Sciences. We utilise a wide variety of techniques including
molecular biology, protein purification, DNA-protein and
protein-protein interactions and structural biology. Experience in one
or more of these techniques would be an advantage, but training will be
available.  The group is part of a multi-disciplinary team occupying
purpose-built laboratories in the Centre for Biomolecular Science.
