INPhINIT, the new PhD programme from “La Caixa” Foundation, opens today the call to recruit 57 early-stage researchers to the top Spanish centres and units of research. The Structural Biology Unit, as a María de Maeztu unit of excellence, offers five PhD positions in structural biology cutting-edge research projects.
The aim of this programme is to support the talented young researchers and to foster the innovative and high-quality Spanish research. The researchers will enjoy a 3-year contract in a research centre among those awarded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (“Severo Ochoa” centres of excellence and “Maria de Maeztu” units of excellence) and the Spanish Ministry of Health (“Carlos III centres of excellence”) that offer a competitive environment to develop a research of excellence.
In this context, the SBU offers five positions to join our research groups and work in the following projects: “Structural Basis of Viral Infection”, “Structural/functional study of a transcription initiation complex”, “In vivo DNA Topology”, “ALEPH: A method to compute local fold and explore folding and function in macromolecular structure” and “Molecular analysis of peptidases and their inhibitors of biomedical or biotechnological interest”.
