Biosciences PhD Student Scholarship – IFPAN, Poland
Title: PhD student in molecular biophysics.
Job Summary: Properties and interactions of natively disordered proteins engaged in biomineralization
The PhD student will Take Part in the NCN Sonata-Bis project “Studies of interactions And dynamics of intrinsically disordered proteins in critical biological methods – biophysical standpoint including single molecule strategy”. The project is centered on investigation the connections of this natively unstructured coral acid-rich proteins which bind calcium in the skeletal organic matrix, on the molecular level. Since intrinsically disordered proteins could embrace a broad array of conformations, they include an important set of “molecular switches”, in which the partial or complete deficiency of the specified structure plays an essential part because of the possibility of a flexible fit to the interacting protein partner or ligand.
