Project Title: 
Study of heat shock signaling and response in African trypanosomes using proteomic and genetic approaches.

Project leader:
Dr Mick Urbaniak (Senior Lecturer, Division of Biomedical and Life Sciences at Lancaster University, UK.)

Qualification and experience: 
You are required to have a PhD in Biochemistry or a related subject, and a strong background in either trypanosome cell biology or quantitative proteomics. Experience of molecular biology, cell culture techniques, and the analysis and interpretation of data is essential. Experience of working with the African trypanosomes Trypanosoma brucei and Trypanosoma congolense, RNA and proteomic techniques would be an advantage, although training will be given.

Title: 
IMC compartmentalization and its role in maturation and transmission of P. falciparum gametocytes

Description:
The position is funded through a three year grant titled ”IMC compartmentalization and its role in maturation and transmission of P. falciparum gametocytes” and focuses on the identification of critical molecules and interactions associated with the morphological changes of the erythrocyte (asexual and gametocyte) stages of the malaria parasite. In particular, interactions of inner membrane complex- cytoskeleton proteins are to be assessed and validated for phenotypic importance using fluorescence microscopy, biochemical and genetic tools.

The position is funded for up to three years, with competitive salary and benefits.

Project leader:
Pr Peter Preiser, Associate Vice President (Biomedical & Life Sciences), Professor, School of Biological Sciences | Nanyang Technolgical University | Singapore
