The Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen is pleased to announce that a PhD fellowship will be available from February 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter. Applications are invited for the three-year fellowship from applicants who hold or expect to hold a master´s degree in a field relevant to the following project: Fragment-based drug discovery against CNS protein targets. The PhD project will focus on the development of novel small molecules against proteins in the brain. The proteins are involved in key pathological processes like oxidative stress and excitotoxicity, which play a fundamental role in CNS diseases such as ischemic stroke and neurodegeneration. In the search for small molecule inhibitors, essential knowledge of the ‘ligandability’ of the proteins is attained, and new inhibitors can serve as valuable tools for further pharmacological studies. Thus, this project can contribute significantly to the discovery of new therapeutic principles against challenging targets and CNS diseases.
Salary and other terms of employment are stated in the Protocol on PhD Research Fellows signed by the Danish Ministry of Finance and AC (the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations).
