Ph.D. Scholarships (6)


Up ]

Six PhD-scholarships are now available at the PhD-school in Molecular and Structural Biology University of Tromso, Norway (details).

Application deadline: April 7th, 2005.

The University of Tromso PhD-school in Molecular and Structural Biology (the MSB PhD-school) is an interfaculty initiative between the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science, University of Tromso, Norway. The joint effort of research groups in molecular cell biology, RNA-biology, and structural and computational biology will provide unique training environments and facilities in functional genomics and modern molecular and structural biology techniques.

The PhD-school associates research groups at the University of Tromso that focus on wide range of topics in molecular and structural biology, including basic problems targeting protein-protein and protein-ligand interaction, protein stability, enzyme catalysis and design, molecular mechanisms of drug action, research targeting the structural and biological basis for tolerance regulation and autoimmune inflammation, cell signaling, transcription factors and gene regulation, and structural and functional studies of RNA.

Six PhD-scholarships are now available for the research projects listed below.

(1) "Structural and molecular bases for nephritis in systemic lupus erythematosus". 
(2) "Studies on the biological role of MAP kinase MK5/PRAK" 
(3) "The binding epitope of SMPI for thermolysin inhibition". 
(4) "Protein interaction network of the multifunctional nuclear protein SPBP"
(5) "Biophysical and biochemical analyses of of uracil-DNA N-glycosylase (UNG) from Atlantic cod"
(6) "Identification and characterization of unique proteinases"
