There is a new opportunity for biochemistry graduates having an interest in the site-specific modification of proteins. Graduates with biochemistry and life sciences can now apply for the Ph.D. program in biochemistry. Selected candidates will have to perform a research work in the area of site-specific modification of proteins that can be coupled with functionalized supports for various purposes.


The position has been announced by the Biomolecule Design Group of the Institute of Materials Research, Hasselt University, Belgium where different other strategies of protein modifications are being explored. The core concept of the research is focused on the advanced medical diagnostics with an aim to improve sensor concept. The sensor concept can be used to enable detection of a few target molecules such as biomarkers, pathogen, and drugs in a reproducible and quantitative way.

However, candidates are also expected to participate in educational tasks such as an assistance of bachelor and master internships in the chemistry department. Other skills that candidates are required to have are; good communicative and reporting skills and can also work in a team.
