An Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position is available within Prof Shattock’s team in the Department of Infectious Disease at Imperial College to work exclusively on the Innovative Training Network on Biomolecular Machines (BIOMOLMACS) funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research (https://www.biomolmacs.com ). You will be enrolled on 4- year structured PhD scheme. You may be required to self-fund after the initial 36 months for successful completion of the PhD program at Imperial College London.
Duties and responsibilities
You will be involved in a 36-month project on the development of a self-amplifying RNA platform for efficient reprogramming of target cells. We will specifically design a library of nano-structured formulations to optimize the stability, uptake, location and duration of RNA expression. We will determine whether next- generation molecular machines can provide effective delivery of RNA biotherapeutics to specific cells and tissues in vitro and in vivo. This approach has potential to provide a highly cost-effective strategy for the clinical delivery of next generation RNA based vaccines and biotherapeutics.
