The project is part of the multidisciplinary research training program “Analytics for Biologics (A4B)” in qualitative and quantitative analysis and purification of therapeutic protein species. The graduate school is offering 15 PhD positions with the aim to produce the much-needed specialists in field of production, down-stream processing and analysis of therapeutic proteins (TP). This Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) is composed of 11 European academic and industrial institutions and provides the optimal scientific network for training schools and individual research projects toward a common goal. Within her/his respective project, each PhD student will receive a background in production, analysis and economic exploitation of TPs, and training in relevant soft skills. This training will be provided during dedicated Training Schools, soft skills training sessions and a number of workshops to be hosted at the different partner institutions. For more information about the positions within this program see below and at www.analytics4biologics.eu
The project at the University of Oslo is focusing on developing protein quantification methods for therapeutic proteins and their modifications using peptide and protein labeling techniques in combination with liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry.
