Post-doctoral position in Protein Engineering available immediately at the Bristol School of Biochemistry and the Synthetic Biology Centre, BrisSynBio, a leading UK and international centre of excellence (www.bristol.ac.uk/brissynbio).

As part of a dynamic team, you will utilize state-of-the-art selection/evolution technology (Ribosome Display) to generate high-affinity binders from a nave library that neutralise snake venom toxins.
