Training accomplished

The search is aimed at people who have passed the 3rd year of a degree in Biological Sciences or Biochemistry, who are interested in completing their final dissertation, and who must have passed the following subjects: biochemistry, biological physicochemistry and microbiology.


Although not exclusive, experience in microbiology and biochemistry techniques (chromatographic techniques, electrophoresis, etc.) would be an asset.


The dissertation will be developed in the framework of an ongoing project that aims to study the regulation by phosphorylation of cell division in a group of bacteria (Corynebacteriales). The non-pathogenic bacterium Corynebacterium glutamicum will be used as a model, but several human pathogens (C. diphteriae, Mycobacterium leprae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis) are included in the group, so the project is of important interest for human health. The selected person will develop activities that include bacterial culture, preparation of protein extracts, performance of different chromatographic strategies, mass spectrometry, use of bioinformatics tools, etc.


The position will be for a period of four months.
