Full Time

The successful applicant will be based at the University of Bristol working on a 3-year project funded by The British Heart Foundation via the Oxbridge Centre for Regenerative Medicine entitled “Characterising the pro-fibrotic versus pro-regenerative roles of zebrafish Osteopontin”. The work will involve using and creating a range of tools to dissect the precise roles of this protein during the inflammatory response to tissue repair and regeneration in the heart and skin.

The successful applicant will join a close-knit and enthusiastic research team. The role will involve the day-to-day running of the project, performing a range of research tasks and assisting with training and supervision of postgraduate members of the lab.

A PhD (awarded or imminent) in a biological or biomedical science is essential and the successful candidate should have prior knowledge of tissue repair/regeneration or inflammation and experience of live imaging or working with tissue samples. Previous experience working with zebrafish is highly desirable but not essential. The successful applicant will be highly organised, eager to learn new skills and to interact with a broad range of colleagues.

The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Sunday 1 July 2018.
