Post-doctoral Research Assistant

Novel Approaches to Nitrile Hydrolysis and Related Reactions

Salary £17,626 - £19,681 pa (PDA scale)

Applications are invited for a BBSRC-funded postdoctoral research
position on Novel Approaches to Nitrile Hydrolysis and Related
Reactions with Dr. David Kelly. This position is the chemistry
component of a three-way project between Oxford (Prof. Chris
Knowles) and Dr. Simon Baker (Birkbeck College, London). The
purpose of the project is to develop new enzymes which hydrolyse
nitriles, using directed evolution. The chemical contribution is to
prepare new nitriles for screening and active site mapping (particularly
superimposition mimics).

Applicants should have a strong background in synthesis and will have
a PhD in Chemistry or have submitted a thesis prior to taking up the
appointment.

The post is available from December 2002 for up to 3 years at a
starting salary of £17,278 to £19,293 p.a. depending on age and
experience.

Applications, in the form of a letter and curriculum vitae with the
names and addresses of two academic referees, who may be
contacted prior to interview, should be sent (emails are not
acceptable) to Dr. David R. Kelly, Department of Chemistry, Cardiff
University, P. O. Box 912, Cardiff, CF10 3TB, Wales, UK

For further information contact KellyDR$##$Cardiff.ac.uk

***Closing date for applications: 20th October 2002.**

Postgraduate Studentship

The synthesis of novel muscarinic agonists

Applications are invited for an industrial/DTA funded postgraduate
studentship on The synthesis of novel muscarinic (M1) agonists.

The purpose of the project is to synthesise a range of new selective
M1 agonists, which are predicted to have medicinal benefits in the
treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. The chemical structures are based
on receptor binding model studies at Cardiff.

Applicants should have a strong interest in organic synthesis and will
have a BSc in Chemistry at 2.1 level or above, or an equivalent
qualification.

The studentship is available immediately. All tuition fees will be paid
and the stipend is £6,000 (pounds sterling) per year for 3 years. Some
paid demonstrating may also be available.

Applications, in the form of a letter and curriculum vitae with the
names and addresses of two academic referees, who may be
contacted
prior to interview, should be sent (emails are not acceptable) to Dr.
