Research Fellow in Epigenetics
The Centre for Experimental Medicine is an interdisciplinary research centre which is committed to the highest quality scientific endeavour, with over 250 basic and clinical scientists working on site. Our mission is to understand the mechanisms of disease and use that understanding to develop innovative new treatments and therapies to improve patient outcomes. We are based in Belfast in the award winning Wellcome-Wolfson Institute for Experimental Medicine.
We are recruiting for a Research Fellow in Epigenetics who will be a highly productive, ambitious and collaborative member of the Gene Regulation Group led by Dr. Vijay Tiwari in the Centre for Experimental Medicine. The position will contribute to internationally competitive research on epigenetic regulation of cell-fate specification during development. The group employs high-throughput genomics assays and cutting-edge epigenetics and molecular biology tools in combination with stem cell biology and neurobiology. The resulting datasets are analysed using computational and systems biology approaches to generate a comprehensive model of epigenetic regulation of gene expression during embryonic development. The successful applicant will have responsibilities in independent research, supervision,planning, day-to-day lab management, collaborations and outreach.
