Important description
The University of Warwick is seeking to recruit 13 early career researchers to PhD Fellowships in INTEGRATIVE THEORETICAL and EXPERIMENTAL ANALYTICAL SCIENCE. This is an exciting transformative PhD opportunity.

The goal of the Centre for Analytical Science Innovative Doctoral Programme (CAS-IDP) is to deliver world-leading analytical science research under two multi-disciplinary themes:

1. Predictive modelling of bacterial cell division and
2. ‘Quality by Design’ of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products.

These fellowships are designed for non-UK (see eligibility) early career researchers (ESRs) wishing to undertake a PhD commencing in September 2013.

FUNDING: is for 3 years at approximately €62,000 pa including mobility allowance (paid in GBP, subject to UK tax deductions)

THESIS SUBMISSION: within 4 years after registration

Students who will thrive in CAS-IDP will display:

Scientific knowledge across disciplines (including a first degree in any relevant subject),
Willingness to learn, technical competence, presentation skills,
A track record of delivering,
Innovation and creativity,
Team working skills,
Leadership experience, and
Ability to organize themselves and others.
ESRs will be recruited to one of 13 projects in the two themes. More information is available at:
http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/wcas/training/cas_idp/ .

Project 1.1: Bacterial inner membrane remodelling by force generation of FtsZ fibres
Project 1.2: Organisation of the divisome complex components
Project 1.3: Methodologies for cell division membrane protein production, purification and characterisation
Project 1.4: Influx and efflux of nutrients and substrates: regulation and dynamic adaptation
Project 1.5: Peptidoglycan structure and remodelling
Project 1.6: Bacterial cell division molecular assemblies as targets for antibacterial drug design
Project 2.1: Statistical methodologies for maximising the information extracted from data
Project 2.2: On-line flow analysis for potential genotoxic impurities
Project 2.3: Protein biopharmaceuticals: probing correct folding with new near IR, polarized Raman spectroscopy, and circular dichroism spectroscopies
Project 2.4: Electron magnetic resonance techniques for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical characterization
Project 2.5: Characterisation of lipidic excipients and their batch to batch variability
Project 2.6: Functional on-line testing of biopharmaceuticals
Project 2.7: Mechanisms of pharmaceutical drug dissolution
The work will be carried out as part of a European Marie Curie Initial Training Network that involves regular meetings and timely delivery of results. Fellows will visit and collaborate (in secondments) with both academic and industrial partners. They will also participate in a series of planned training events and workshops covering topics such as team working and leadership, business, intellectual property, industrial biotechnology, and science communication.

Eligibility and other criteria
Applicants must have less than 4 years research experience (defined from the end of a first degree). Applicants must not have resided or carried their main activity in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to recruitment.

Application deadline
* 1 February 2013
