Postdoctoral Researcher in Chemical Biology

King's College London

King’s College London – Department of Chemistry

The research group of Dr. Manuel Mueller in the Department of Chemistry at King’s College London is looking for a postdoctoral researcher. Our newly formed lab develops and applies chemical biology strategies to investigate how proteins are controlled by post-translational modifications. The majority of research in this field focuses on modifications of amino acid side chains, but emerging evidence suggests that protein backbone modifications contribute to the regulation of biomedically important proteins. This postdoctoral project aims to develop a proteomics platform to identify and characterise proteins subject to backbone modifications.

The candidate holds a PhD in Biochemistry with an emphasis on the areas of proteomics and/or protein engineering, and has a deep understanding of protein biochemistry. Experience in peptide chemistry is desirable but not required. The candidate has a proven track record of research excellence as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals. She/he has a fascination for interdisciplinary research, works well in a small team and has excellent communication skills. 

Funding for this post is provided through a Sir Henry Dale Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust and the Royal Society. 

The starting salary will be paid within Grade 6, £32,600 to £33,574 per annum, plus £2,323 per annum London Allowance. 

This post will be a full time, fixed term contract for 5 years with possible extension. 

The selection process will include a presentation and a panel interview. 

Interviews are scheduled to be held the week commencing: 10 October 2016.

For an informal discussion to find out more about the role please contact Dr. Manuel Mueller at
