PhD positions in both physical chemistry and chemical biology are available in the group of Professor Matthew Eddy at the University of Florida (UF).
Trainees in chemical biology and physical chemistry have direct access to state-of-the-art facilities and instrumentation within the Department of Chemistry and across the UF campus broadly. This includes brand new wetlab facilities, world-class facilities for nuclear magnetic resonance and magnetic resonance imaging through the UF AMRIS facility, advanced mass spectrometry core facilities, and a multitude of additional instrumentation for biophysical and structural biology research. Local NMR instrumentation includes multiple high field instruments for structural biology, equipped for both solids and solution NMR, and multiple moderate field instruments. Additionally, students have access to facilities available at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, including multiple unique high field instruments.
A wide range of opportunities exist for student trainees, including with studies of human membrane proteins and their complexes with small molecules and proteins. Our group places special emphasis on studies of human G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), which are sensory proteins involved in nearly every physiological process and the largest family of “druggable” protein targets. The Eddy lab collaborates extensively both with local experts in cell biology and biophysics, as well as experts in pharmacology and medicinal chemistry from around the world.
We strongly encourage applications from prospective PhD students to the Department of Chemistry at the University of Florida for graduate studies in NMR spectroscopy. PhD students receive guaranteed full tuition, benefits, and a stipend to pursue graduate studies.
Applications are due on December 15, 2019 and interested students with backgrounds in Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry, and/or Biophysics can find out more by following the link below:
