This project focuses on defining the molecular mechanisms underpinning endothelial cell permeability, with an aim to better understand the pathobiology of pulmonary oedema. Particular attention will be focused on how reactive oxygen species derived from NADPH oxidase 2 impacts the cortical actin-based cytoskeleton to drive endothelial cell permeability. The post-holder will use cross-disciplinary techniques in molecular biology and live cell imaging (such as spinning disc confocal microscopy and FRET/FLIM approaches). Applicants with strong track records in endothelial cell biology, microscopy and molecular biology (DNA cloning and production of lentiviral vectors) will be considered highly suitable.
Key responsibilities of the job include:
- Develop and undertake research of high quality, consistent with making a full active research contribution in line with Department/Division/School research strategy.
- Manage specific pieces of activity to an agreed timeline and within a specific budget including literature reviews, data collection and analysis, report writing.
