Research Associate in Quantitative Live Cell Imaging
University College London - UCL-MRC Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology
|Salary:||£33,686 to £40,716|
|Contract Type:||Contract / Temporary|
|Placed on:||19th September 2016|
|Closes:||22nd October 2016|
The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be from £33,686 to £40,716 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
A Wellcome Trust funded Research Associate position is available in the Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology at University College London (www.ucl.ac.uk/LMCB). The project will be carried out in the laboratory of Dr Jonathan Chubb and will be for three years in the first instance. The laboratory uses innovative imaging technologies to observe the transcription firing of single genes in living cells (eLife 5:13051, Curr.Biol. 16: 1018-25, PNAS 109:7350). Their goals are to understand the mechanisms of transcription, and how noisy transcription is regulated and integrated into robust cellular and developmental decisions.
The project provides an excellent opportunity to start out and develop a career niche in gene regulation and cellular decision-making. The Chubb laboratory is embedded in a world-class working environment offering remarkable opportunities for stimulating scientific exchange and professional development.
Candidates are expected to be scientists who have a PhD degree (or are about to be awarded one) and a track record of research in a relevant area of the life and/or physical sciences. Of particular interest are applicants with a background in imaging and quantitative image analysis, with PhDs in physics or other quantitative sciences.
Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent on having been awarded a PhD. If this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (salary £29,485 - £31,091 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
