PhD position available at Naicons
A Doctoral Candidate (DC) will be recruited to perform research in antibacterial drug discovery within the framework of the project CLEAR, Cell Envelope Antibacterials (HORIZON-MSCA-2022-DN-01); Grant Agreement nr. 101119534). The aim of CLEAR is to train young researchers in Europe to address serious and global problems of antibiotic resistance.
The selected candidate will be employed for three years at NAICONS (Milan, Italy; www.naicons.com), where he/she will perform most of the research work aimed at identifying and characterizing novel antimicrobial activities from variants of poorly explored classes of known metabolites and of metabolites predicted not to be associated with known classes. This will be accomplished through a combination of data mining and wet lab work using the micro4all Platform and its Molecules Gateway.
