Research Associate

University of Sheffield - Department of Biomedical Science

Fixed term for 36 months

The successful candidate will work on a BBSRC funded project titled ‘Cilia Mediates Mechanism of Otolith Mineralization’ in the laboratory of Dr Jarema Malicki. The Malicki laboratory has a long-standing interest in the differentiation and function of cilia and has made many contributions to this field of research. You will study novel and unexpected aspects of cilia function in protein secretion. Although the project will focus on the auditory system, we expect that the conclusions derives from these studies will have far-reaching implications.

Applicants must have or be about to obtain a PhD in a relevant discipline (e.g. genetics, developmental genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, etc.) or have equivalent experience. The successful candidate will be motivated, hard-working and have the capacity for carrying out studies independently as well as working effectively as part of a team. Applicants should have experience in a broad range of genetic, molecular biology and imaging techniques, including molecular cloning and various forms of confocal microscopy. Experience with embryo manipulation is also highly desirable.
