Work at LISCB

The Leicester Institute of Structural and Chemical Biology (LISCB) is a cross-disciplinary entity that brings together internationally renowned research in structural biology and chemical biology at the University of Leicester into a single world-leading unit. The Institute aims to exploit synergies in research technologies to deliver major advances in both fundamental and translational research and has the following major research strands:

  • understanding the structure and mechanism of macromolecules and macromolecular complexes in biology
  • structure-based drug discovery and design
  • the use of single molecule techniques to understand biological processes
  • the development of chemical probes and compound libraries

There are no current vacancies. We are always looking to explore options of gaining fantastic new colleagues. Please get in touch with Tennie at or individual academics to discuss.
