The University of Surrey is an international University with a world-class research profile and an enterprising spirit. Inventive and forward-thinking, our heritage shows a recurring theme of doing things differently – and achieving notable results.

As well as expertise in learning and teaching, the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences is widely recognized for world-class research. We are now seeking an enthusiastic Postdoctoral Research Associate in Cardiac Electrophysiology to work within One Health Cardiology Research Group at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Surrey. The project will involve characterizing the electrophysiological and molecular mechanism of a range of anti-malaria therapies. The work is funded by the British Heart Foundation 

The successful applicant will join an interdisciplinary team at the school and will be primarily engaged in the conduct of electrophysiological work (e.g patch clamp studies, sharp electrode experiment, calcium imaging etc). The candidate ideally should be familiar with live tissue slicing and working with hIPSC cultures and selected molecular work primarily associated with mitochondrial studies using flux analyzers.  Additionally, a major component of this post will also involve data analysis and interpretation data management and archiving, project administration and manuscript preparation. A proven track record in these areas is essential. 

Candidates should hold a PhD in a related discipline and ideally with previous postdoctoral research experience. The position is a 1 FTE fixed-term for 24 months with option for renewal for another 12 months subject to satisfactory performance. Applicants must be highly motivated, enthusiastic and engage in scholarly activities conducive to a long-term successful academic career that will support and enhance the research culture within the school. Applicants should be prepared to travel abroad for collection of tissue samples.
