The Swedish Structural Biology Network is a five-year project funded by the
Strategic Research Foundation with an annual budget of more than ten million
Swedish Crowns. Its aim is to strengthen the strategic value of Structural
Biology in Sweden.  The Network consists of the Swedish academic centres
involved in protein and DNA crystallography, NMR spectroscopy and modelling.
The Network fosters collaboration in matters of research, education and
knowledge transfer, and funds many new academic positions.

At present, candidates are sought for 8 RESEARCH STUDENTSHIPS. Each
position will be associated with a Swedish University, will be funded for a
period of 4 years, and is expected to result in a doctoral dissertation.
Candidates are required to have successfully completed undergraduate
studies in a relevant area (e.g., molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics).
Studentships are available for the following research projects:

(1) Structural studies on the Platelet-Derived Growth Factor Receptor and its
    complex with Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (X-ray)
(2) Ribonucleotide Reductase holoenzyme complexes (X-ray)
(3) Structure of viruses and viral components (X-ray)
(4) Protein secretion (X-ray)
(5) Ribosomal proteins and factors (X-ray)
(6) Protein-protein interactions: structural studies of Bruton's Tyrosine
(7) Expression and NMR analysis of triply-labelled proteins (NMR)
(8) Initiation of blood coagulation: interaction between Factor VII and
    Tissue Factor,and the role of non-catalytic domains (NMR)
