This is an exciting opportunity to join an internationally leading group led by Professor Albert Ong working on the molecular basis of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), the most common genetic disease leading to kidney failure in man. This post will investigate the role of the cyclic AMP pathway in the pathogenesis of ADPKD with a view to testing a new class of compounds to inhibit disease progression in mammalian disease models. The successful applicant will be responsible for driving this project which will be the foundation of a new academic-industrial partnership for drug discovery in ADPKD.
You should have a first degree and PhD in strong experience in cell biology, protein biochemistry, molecular biology and in vivo mammalian disease models as shown by relevant publications, relevant technical experience, and a high level of enthusiasm for scientific research. You should have excellent communication and organisational skills, be able to work effectively, flexibly, independently and to interact well within a team to deliver project milestones and deadlines.
This post is available immediately for 12 months in the first instance (fixed-term).
