Postdoctoral Research Associate

University of Edinburgh - College of Science and Engineering, Institute for Stem Cell Research

A post is available to examine the chromatin and protein interactions of the pluripotency transcription factor, Nanog. We have demonstrated that a specific domain within Nanog is important for mediating LIF-independent self-renewal. This post will examine how Nanog with mutations within this domain interact with chromatin and with Nanog partner proteins to influence ESC functionality. The post holder will have a PhD (or a PhD to be obtained soon) in Stem Cell Biology and a keen interest in how cell identity is controlled. You should be an expert in pluripotent cell culture, be able to perform chromatin immunoprecipitation and co-immunoprecipitation. Familiarity with Gro-Seq is desirable. Post is full-time and fixed term for 12 months.

Closing Date:16-DEC-2016 at 5pm GMT
