The King’s College London British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre of Research Excellence is designed to nurture interdisciplinary collaborations and bench-to-bedside projects in cardiovascular research (www.kcl.ac.uk/scms/bhf-centre).

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join the Faculty of Cardiovascular Medicine & Sciences, the core constituent of the BHF Centre.

The applicant will work on a BHF-funded project aimed at investigating the cellular and molecular mechanisms of metabolic rewiring in angiogenesis. It combines an array of expertise from non-coding RNAs, vascular biology and gene editing, cell reprogramming and differentiation towards vascular cells, to metabolic profiling.

Applicants must hold a PhD in Biology/Biochemistry (or an equivalent scientific degree), be highly motivated, independent and should be able to integrate and work as part of a team. An excellent background in cardiovascular and molecular biology as well as fluently spoken English is essential and required. Experience in working with human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS), tissue engineering and a good knowledge of non-coding RNA biology is highly desirable.

This post will be offered on a fixed-term contract for 36 months.

The selection process will include a panel interview and a presentation.

For an informal discussion to find out more about the role please contact: Dr Anna Zampetaki on anna.zampetaki@kcl.ac.uk or 02078485138.
