Job number ACAD104546
Division/School School of Biochemistry
Contract type Open Ended
Working pattern Full time
Salary £33,797 - £38,017 per annum
Closing date for applications 15-Jun-2020
We are seeking a Research Associate to join the newly established lab of Dr Bernadette Carroll. The project will employ in vitro and in vivo (in zebrafish) approaches (including protein biochemistry, confocal and live-imaging, molecular biology and quantitative proteomic analysis) to investigate the mechanisms of mTORC1 dysregulation in cellular senescence. The funds for this position are available for 3 years in the first instance and jointly provided by The Wellcome Trust and Royal Society.
The successful candidate will join an enthusiastic team working within a thriving community of cell biology research labs working on various aspects of membrane dynamics and cell signalling. A PhD (awarded or imminent, or equivalent professional qualification/experience) in a relevant field is essential, as is research experience in a molecular cell biology/biochemistry lab environment. Previous knowledge of mTORC1 signalling, autophagy and/or cellular senescence is highly desirable.
For informal enquiries please contact Bernadette Carroll, +44 (0)117 331 2194, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
