Postdoctoral Research Scientist - Molecular/Cell Biology

University of Oxford - Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM)

Nuffield Department of Medicine (NDM), Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, Old Road Campus Research Building, Headington, Oxford

We are seeking an exceptional, enthusiastic and motivated Postdoctoral Research Scientist – Molecular/Cell Biology possessing experience in biochemistry, molecular biology and cell biology and, with the ability to work to a high standard. Previous laboratory experience, attention to detail and an ability to work both independently and as part of a team are essential.

The research project available will involve a wide range of basic and advanced biochemical, molecular and cell biology techniques, including but not limited to mammalian cell culture, genome editing, gene expression profiling and mass spectrometry-based proteomics. Previous and relevant experience with ubiquitin biology as well as mass spectrometry-based proteomics is required. Previous experience in signal transduction is highly desirable.

You should possess a PhD degree (or equivalent) or be near completion in biochemistry, molecular biology or related discipline. First-author publication/s in internationally recognised journals are essential. In your role as Postdoctoral Research Scientist – Molecular/Cell Biology you will have knowledge of the standard laboratory techniques for molecular and cell biology, biochemistry, and you will have experience in studying signalling pathways using proteomics.

Training will be available in all aspects of the work, especially in protocols relating to the study of ubiquitin-related processes. You must have an adaptable approach to work and a willingness to tackle a variety of tasks. Support and troubleshooting guidance will be available. However, after induction, an ability to work without supervision, combining a structured and organised approach with enthusiasm will be important. You will work with other postdoctoral researchers and graduate students undertaking related projects.

You will also be required to upload a CV and supporting statement which explains how you meet the selection criteria for the post.

Only applications received before 12.00 noon on 12 December 2016 will be considered.
