Research Associate - School of Biochemistry
Job number ACAD104512
Division/School School of Biochemistry
Contract type Open Ended
Working pattern Full time
Salary £33,797 - £38,017 per annum
Closing date for applications 05-Apr-2020
A post-doc position is available to join a team of researchers in Bristol investigating how inflammation triggered by tissue damage impacts on all other cell lineages at the wound site to drive good and bad repair outcomes. Experiments will include live-imaging, molecular biology, FACS and epigenetic/transcriptomic/proteomic analysis of inflammatory cells in various zebrafish models of wound inflammation.
You will join the lab of Professor Paul Martin, (http://www.bris.ac.uk/biochemistry/people/paul-b-martin/index.html). The role will involve the day-to-day running of the project, performing a range of research tasks, collaborating with other RAs, and assisting with training and supervision of postgraduate members of the lab.
A PhD (awarded or imminent) in a biological or biomedical science is essential and you should have prior knowledge of tissue repair/regeneration or inflammation and experience of live imaging or working with tissue samples. Previous experience working with zebrafish is highly desirable but not essential. You will be highly organised, eager to learn new skills, ambitious, and able to interact with a broad range of colleagues. The funds for this position are available for up to 5 years.
For informal enquiries please contact Professor Paul Martin, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
