- Juan de la Cierva – Formación for those who obtained their PhD between 2017 and 2018.
For a full text of the call (in Spanish), please follow this link.
The research will be focused on how GalNAc-Ts and other glycosyltransferases recognise and catalyse their protein substrates, and the implications of these processes in different diseases.
The candidates must possess a PhD either in Biochemistry, Chemistry, Pharmacy or Veterinary. In addition, they should have interest in structural biology.
How to apply
A CV together with two recommendation letters should be sent by e-mail to Dr. Hurtado-Guerrero (firstname.lastname@example.org) before January 21st. The CV should also contain the manuscripts published during the candidate’s PhD or postdoctoral position, as well as the final grades of her/his Degree and Master.
