Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in interdisciplinary biosciences with a particular emphasis on combining cell biology and bioimaging with mechanical modelling. The research project is an exciting opportunity to work with Procter and Gamble and be part of a diverse multidisciplinary team at Durham University. The PDRA will develop a novel imaging and mechanics platform to allow mechanical manipulation of cells and tissues during conventional and superesolution imaging. The successful candidate will develop and implement bioimaging, informatic and computational mechanics solutions to characterise the physical properties of cell layers and cellular responses to mechanical stress. The PDRA will work with a multidisciplinary supervisory team including PIs in Biosciences, Mathematical Sciences and Engineering.

This post is full time & fixed term for 12 months.
