Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Cell Biology

University of Oxford - Sir William Dunn School of Pathology

South Parks Road, Oxford

This is an opportunity for a talented and ambitious postdoc to join Matthew Freeman’s group at the Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford.

This is a full-time fixed-term appointment for 2 years.

The postholder will carry out postdoctoral research into members of the rhomboid-like superfamily with a particular focus on their possible role in ciliary biology. Although some aspects of the project are flexible, significant experience in biochemistry and molecular biology will be essential.

You will have a PhD in biochemistry or molecular biology, as well as good knowledge of molecular cell biology techniques. Experience in protein biochemistry would be an advantage. You should be able to work independently to solve experimental problems, and be capable of carrying out high-quality, cutting-edge research, as evidenced by a strong publication record.
