Postdoctoral Research Associate

King's College London

Salary Details: Grade 6: £33,518 - £36,613 per annum

Allowances: £2,923 London Living Allowance

As part of an ambitious programme of research to analyse and manipulate isolated single cells and funded by the UK Medical Research Council, we are seeking an exceptional post-doctoral researcher to develop innovative cell imaging techniques using the latest technology. Interest in, or experience of advanced microscopy, microfluidics, biophysics, optics, optical trapping and computer programming is desirable. No prior biological experience is expected or required but an enthusiasm to apply physical and engineering principles to specific biological problems is essential. This project will explore the application of advanced imaging techniques such as high-speed multifocal multiphoton fluorescence lifetime imaging, development and validation of FRET assays, microfluidic platform development, 3D printing, super-resolution imaging and signal processing to elucidate protein signalling within live cells. Such a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach will enable us to accurately determine protein oligomerisation, stoichiometry and downstream signalling of ligand-driven receptor interactions. The successful candidate will join a multidisciplinary team within a well-equipped laboratory environment using state of the art bespoke microscopy to answer fundamental questions of relevance to personalised cancer medicine.

The selection process will include a presentation and a panel interview.

Interviews are scheduled to be held the week commencing: 16 October 2017.
