This Research Associate post, funded for 24 months by grants from the MRC-Newton Fund, requires a talented researcher to join a team investigating protein biomarkers predictive of dengue disease severity.

The specific aim of the collaborative research project, which involves researchers at the University of Bristol, the University of Glasgow and Universities in the Philippines and in Indonesia is to use integrated high-throughput ‘omics approaches to identify biomarkers in patient blood that are predictive of dengue disease severity and have the potential to be developed for dengue disease prognosis.

The project will use a combination of quantitative and targeted proteomics, virological and cell biology techniques. The knowledge gained from the project will contribute to our understanding of dengue pathogenesis and arthropod-borne viruses circulating in the Philippines and Indonesia.

The position is open to applicants who have or are soon to obtain a Ph.D. in biomedical or related sciences. Experience with high-throughput mass spectrometry based proteomics, proteomic bioinformatics, molecular biology, protein purification, virology and tissue culture techniques are essential.

The project will be supervised by Dr Andrew Davidson (PI). Informal inquiries are welcome and may be addressed to Dr Andrew Davidson (tel: +44 (0) 117 331 2024; email: andrew.davidson@bristol.ac.uk )

The closing date for applications is: Midnight Thursday 27 April 2017
