Research Fellow in Cell Biology/Membrane Traffic (79127-057)

University of Warwick - Warwick Medical School, Biomedical Cell Biology

Fixed term contract for 3 years.

You will join the laboratory of Dr Stephen Royle in the Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology, Division of Biomedical Sciences at Warwick Medical School. The lab focusses on cell biology at the molecular level with projects on cell division, membrane traffic, cell migration and cancer. The aim of this project funded by MRC, is to understand the membrane trafficking functions of Tumor Protein D52-like proteins and their role in cell migration/invasion. The expression of these proteins is altered in cancer and their overexpression correlates with poor prognosis. We use imaging (light and electron microscopy), biochemistry, and gene editing to understand molecular mechanisms in human cells. We offer an outstanding environment for discovery science in one of the best universities in the UK.

You will have a good honours degree and have or expect shortly to have a relevant PhD, plus experience in molecular cell biology, strong scientific interest and motivation. A strong publication record is preferred.

Where you have not yet been awarded your PhD, any offer made to you will be an under-appointment to the post of Research Assistant at a salary of £28,453 per annum. Once your PhD has been awarded and evidenced, you will be appointed to the substantive post of Research Fellow at a salary within the range shown above.
