University of Warwick - Warwick Medical School

Biomedical Sciences

3 years fixed term contract

Postdoctoral Fellow in Cell Biology: Microtubule self-organisation in skeletal muscle cells.

A Wellcome-funded post is available in the Straube lab to investigate the self-organisation of acentrosomal microtubule arrays with a focus on live cell imaging. The post holder will be a member of the Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology and Warwick Medical School benefitting from an outstanding scientific environment and access to state-of-the-art research facilities. The project will focus on the development of live cell imaging assays using lattice light sheet microscopy and genome-edited cell lines to determine the microtubule network organisation and the position of microtubule plus and minus ends in mutant cell lines.

You will have an excellent first degree in a relevant subject area (biochemistry, biological sciences, physics), have or expect shortly to complete a PhD or have equivalent research experience. Experience in working on an interdisciplinary scientific project is desirable, strong scientific interest and motivation are essential.

Informal enquiries including a CV should be sent to a.straube@warwick.ac.uk.
