UCL recognises that in our society, individuals and groups are discriminated against both directly and indirectly on the grounds of: age, colour, disability, ethnic origin, gender, HIV status, marital, social or economic status, nationality, race, religious beliefs, responsibility for dependants, sexual orientation, trades union membership or unrelated criminal convictions.

To counteract discrimination, UCL is committed to actively opposing all forms of discrimination, raising awareness and tackling the causes and consequences.

It is committed to providing a learning and working environment in which the rights and dignity of all its members are respected and which is free from discrimination, prejudice, intimidation and all forms of harassment including bullying; to making staff and students feel valued, motivated and enabled to do their best work and to creating a safe, welcoming working environment accessible to all.

Research Associate in Glycoprotein Synthesis and Protein engineering - Ref: 1455382

Publication date:

The Research Associate will work principally in the laboratory of Dr Derek Macmillan, in the Department of Chemistry at University College London on a BBSRC funded project “Optimisation of a semi-synthetic ligation strategy for single glycoform glycotherapeutics“. The appointee will also work collaboratively with Prof Paul Dalby (UCL Biochemical Engineering) and Dextra Laboratories UK on studies relating to engineering of glycoprotein processing enzymes. The objective is to study the role of protein glycans in extending the survival of therapeutic proteins and to explore the potential for glycoengineering to generate new therapeutic activities.

Tuning the properties and production of structurally novel inorganic nanoparticles

Publication date:

Tuning the properties and production of structurally novel inorganic nanoparticles

DTA funding for a three year PhD project, starting this September, is available for a talented student (expected to obtain a first in either chemistry or physics). The DTA student’s principle supervisors will be Drs. S.M. Woodley (SMW) and M.A. Zwijnenburg (MAZ), both of whom are based within UCL Chemistry, and together have over a hundred research papers (work based on both development and application of theory in computational chemistry and physics of materials). Although this is a computational project, it is part of a new collaboration with Prof. Richard Palmer, an experimental physicist at the University of Birmingham (UoB). The aim of the collaboration is to develop methods of preparing small (0.5-2 nm) size-selected inorganic nanoparticles, deposit them on a support and characterise their properties. The DTA student would initially learn to employ both in-house and other internationally leading software to predict the structure and properties of nanoparticles. This is an excellent opportunity to join a successful group and to contribute to the internationally leading research at UCL. More details on the collaboration are provided below.
