Postdoctoral Research Associate

University of Liverpool - Department of Musculoskeletal Biology

Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease

You will be a highly motivated individual who will join a vibrant team of Dr Vanja Pekovic-Vaughan working in close collaboration with Prof George Bou-Gharios and Dr Marina Anderson. The project will investigate the molecular mechanisms of age- and disease-related decline in tissue repair and associated pathological healing. Specifically, the project will study the role of circadian control of antioxidant pathways in connective tissue repair in both physiological and disease settings (e.g. diabetes, systemic sclerosis). This project will utilise a combination of advanced molecular biology techniques, cell culture, histology as well as in vivo models and human biopsies from patients with connective tissue diseases. You are expected to have an established skill set that includes extensive experience in core techniques from several of the above technical areas. You will be expected to publish your research in high quality journals and should have a track record that includes at least one significant first author peer-reviewed publication (or a paper in press). You should have a PhD in cell/molecular biology, genetics, physiology, biochemistry or related life sciences discipline. You should be ambitious to further develop your expertise and broaden your skill base. Previous training in working with in vivo models and transgenic animals, bioinformatics and imaging techniques is desirable and training will be given by local experts where required. The post is available until 1 January 2020.
