Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases

University of Oxford - Sir William Dunn School of Pathology

This position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr Natalia Gromak. The post holder will join a team, investigating the mechanisms governing gene regulation in humans. We are particularly interested in molecular biology of unusual RNA/DNA structures (R-loops) and their function in health and diseases.

We are seeking to appoint a well-trained, enthusiastic and self-motivated scientist possessing experience in biochemistry, molecular/cellular biology, with the ability to work to a high standard. Previous laboratory experience, good organisational and communication skills, good publication record and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. The research project will involve a wide range of molecular biology and biochemical techniques, including RNA work, protein purification, mammalian cell culture, mass spectrometry. Expertise in molecular mechanisms of transcription and RNA processing would be an advantage. Candidates with experience in genomic analyses, proteomic approaches, imaging analysis and bioinformatics would be especially welcome. Training will be available in all aspects of the work, especially in the less standard protocols, although it is expected that applicants will be familiar with the majority of the necessary techniques. Further information abou  t the group and project can be found on:

To apply please upload a CV and cover letter below.
