The Division of Structural Biology
In light of the ongoing high rates of COVID-19 nationally, the continuation of the government’s ‘Plan B’ measures, and the latest guidance for higher education providers issued by the Department for Education, the University has agreed the following measures.
- Health measures: Face coverings are essential for reducing the spread of COVID-19 and should be worn by all staff and students when moving around University buildings. Members of staff conducting teaching are not required to wear face coverings, to support education delivery. Social distancing is not formally required. However, staff and students are expected to respect each other’s space, using the experience of the last two years.
- Working arrangements: Staff who are able to work from home are expected to continue doing so where possible. However, the University is fully open for teaching and research, and buildings remain open and should be accessible to all staff. As such, staff are expected to work on site to support in-person teaching, research and wider University operations where necessary.

The Division of Structural Biology (STRUBI) is a research centre of excellence for the study of the molecular and structural basis of biology. Students in STRUBI study a wide range of problems from a structural and mechanistic perspective using a range of structural biology methods including X-ray Crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy, NMR and other biophysical and biochemical methods. For details of the projects available and how to apply, please look under the Studentships tab.
