PhD Scholarship in Biochemistry in Molecular Modeling at Lund University

Lund University, Sweden is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in environmental sciences. The funding allows successful candidate to work for four years. The deadline to apply is April 19, 2020.

The Faculty of Science conducts research and education within Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Environmental Sciences. The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees.

The PhD student will work in a larger project financed by EU called ENDFLU, which has the goal of developing better influenza vaccines. The specific direction of the work of the PhD student is to develop systems for display of antigens with the help of self-assembled proteins as scaffolds. This work will primarily involve computational design of proteins with Rosetta macromolecular modeling package, and with some degree of experimental work in characterizing designed proteins.


Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.

The employment of doctoral students is regulated in the Swedish Code of Statues 1998: 80. Only those who are or have been admitted to PhD-studies may be appointed to doctoral studentships. When an appointment to a doctoral studentship is made, the ability of the student to benefit from PhD-studies shall primarily be taken into account. In addition to devoting themselves to their studies, those appointed to doctoral studentships may be required to work with educational tasks, research and administration, in accordance with specific regulations in the ordinance.
