A PhD scholarship is available immediately in the lab of Dr. Brett Collins at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience, University of Queensland, Brisbane (Australia). The successful applicant will join a team using multidisciplinary approaches to study intracellular membrane trafficking in the human cell. The student will use X-ray crystallography to determine structures of membrane coat proteins, biochemical and biophysical methods to probe protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions and cell biology experiments to study protein localisation in vivo. Students with skills in molecular biology, protein chemistry or cell biology but with an interest in structural biology are encouraged to apply. The position offered is part of an ARC Discovery Project Grant “From structures to systems: A hierarchical approach to understanding sub-cellular components” awarded to Dr. Collins and Prof. Alan Mark (School of Molecular and Microbial Sciences). Applicants please refer to website.
