Subject: 17.07.07 Horizon2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie PhD Scholarship in Computational Chemistry/Biology
The rational enzyme evolution project encompasses developing and applying
computational chemistry/biology approaches to engineer enzymes to achieve
regioselectivity, enantioselectivity and broad substrate scope to potentiate
their immediate exploitations in industry. The students will be involved in
interdisciplinary project with close collaboration with biologists from
internationally renowned institutions and industry. 

PhD students funded within Maire Sklodowska-Curie programmes have the title
of Early Stage Researcher (ESR) and will be employees of Queens University
Belfast while completing their doctoral study. QUB is a member of Russell
Group comprised of 24 leading UK research universities including Cambridge,
Oxford, Imperial.

The 3-year PhD project has specifications on the following topics:

	Protein structure prediction and refinement
	Molecular dynamics simulations of biomolecules
	Free energy calculation of protein-ligand binding
	Structure-guided engineering of enzymes
	QM/MM calculation of enzymatic reactions

The SPaRK programme offers a generous remuneration package based on a basic
per annum salary of 25,576.45.
At the time of recruitment, in the first four years of their research
careers and must not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree.
Researchers can be of any nationality. However, they shall not have
resided in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior
to the reference date.
The minimum requirement for eligibility for consideration will be
equivalent of a UK 2.1 Hons degree/equivalent OR Masters completion.
Outstanding candidates may be eligible for entry on completion of an
undergraduate degree.
