A post-doctoral position is available in the Peptide Synthesis Laboratory, in the Chemistry Department of RCSI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rS3OLxnuyE).
A post-doctoral candidate is sought for the development of multi-functional peptides inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 infection of human cells. The project involves the synthesis of peptide candidates containing different motifs, which can be activated in the presence of human cells. Their screening, with non-infected cells, will also be performed in a tissue culture facility also at RCSI, to select candidates for further testing against SARS-CoV-2. The latter tests will be performed separately by a virology team based at University College Dublin (UCD).
This is a full-time position, funded for up to 12 months.
