ไบโอเทคเปิดรับสมัครทุนวิจัยหลังปริญญาเอก (Post-Doctoral Fellowship) ประจำปี 2556 ในหัวข้อวิจัย ดังนี้
Position 1. Research on Bioactive Fungal Metabolites
Job description: The candidate will work in the chemistry of bioactive fungal metabolites. The primary research job is the isolation and structure elucidation of novel compounds from fungal cultures. As application, the candidate will also be requested to study on semi-synthesis or precursor-directed biosynthesis of the analogues of the bioactive compounds found by himself/herself.
Eligibility/Specific Qualifications: The postdoctoral candidate should have the main educational background of natural product chemistry and/or synthetic organic chemistry. For the candidate who is skilled in synthetic organic chemistry, previous experience of natural product isolation is not requested. The sabbatical leave cases will also be preferably considered.
Position 2. Structure-assisted design of antimalarials
Job description: The candidate will determine crystal structures of potential drug targets in malaria and carry out protein expression, purification, characterization, crystallization, synchrotron data collection and rational drug design.
Eligibility/Specific Qualifications: A Ph.D. in Biophysics, Biochemistry, chemistry or related field with a strong background in X-ray crystallography
Position 3. A search for bioactive compounds from Actinomycetes
1. To isolate the chemical constituents from crude extracts by using chromatographic techniques including column chromatography, HPLC, etc.
2. To identify the chemical ingredients by using spectroscopic techniques including NMR, MS, IR, UV, etc.
3. To evaluate biological activity of isolated compounds
Eligibility/Specific Qualifications: Candidates must have skill in various separation techniques of isolation of bioactive compounds, such as HPLC, column chromatography etc. Also, the candidates should have knowledge and skill in the art of structural elucidation of chemical structures by using spectroscopy techniques such as NMR, MS etc.
Position 4. Identification of novel drug resistance genes in malaria parasites
Job description: The candidate will join the current research team to identify novel drug resistance gene in malaria parasites. The activities include testing of parasites, monitoring of its antimalarial resistance in vitro, generation of the parasite’s gene library, transfection of Plasmodium parasites, selection of drug resistance parasites and identification of drug resistance genes.
Eligibility/Specific Qualifications: Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Molecular biology, Genetics, Cell biology or related fields. Previous experience working in parasitology, especially malaria, is a plus, but not a must.
Position 5: Development of a protein secretion system with enhanced recombinant protein production in Thai isolated thermotolerant yeast.
Eligibility/Specific Qualifications: Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology of yeast or eukaryotes.
The positions are open to Thai and international applicants. To apply, please submit the Application Form
