PhD grant proposal for a student preparing a master's degree in biochemistry, pharmacy to compete for a thesis funding proposed by the university Lyon 1.
The deadline for application is April 6th, 2020. Very elitist, this 3 years thesis funding (a little more than 100 k€) is reserved for very good CVs.
The proposed project will be to resolve by cryo-electron microscopy the structure of a protein target of echinocandins in yeast and to characterize its function, in order to develop new inhibitors. It is therefore a project at the interface between structural biology, biochemistry and medicinal chemistry.
An important restriction to this competition is that the Master prepared this year or obtained last year must be NOT obtained in collaboration with a French university. It can be done with a university from another country, but not France.
