Research Assistant

University of Edinburgh - The Roslin Institute

We are seeking a highly motivated Research Assistant to work on a project funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council as part of the Animal Health Research Club. The project focuses on the genetic control of macrophage function and application of the macrophage growth factor, CSF1. Investments in next generation sequencing in Edinburgh Genomics have revolutionised numerous projects in The Roslin Institute, focussed on genetic and genomic analysis of companion and livestock species. The successful candidates will have the opportunity to drive cutting-edge genomic research, and work in a highly interdisciplinary and stimulating environment contributing to our research into the links between genome variation and desirable and undesirable phenotypes. We collaborate extensively with major animal health and livestock breeding companies and with clinical researchers in The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. The research will have significant applications in avian health.

The successful candidate will ideally have an honours degree in biosciences, and laboratory experience in molecular and/or cellular biology.
