Research Associate

Imperial College London - Structural Biology / Experimental Medicine / Medicine

Campus: South Kensington

We wish to recruit a Research Associate to work in the research group of Professor Dale Wigley (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/d.wigley), in the Section of Structural Biology, Department of Medicine, at Imperial College London’s South Kensington Campus. The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team of international researchers investigating the structures and mechanisms of chromatin modifying complexes in human DNA damage repair and cancer. We combine structural biology techniques with biochemistry to understand molecular mechanisms for DNA repair that prevent cancer in humans. The successful candidate will have proven expertise in either or both of these areas.

You must hold a PhD, or equivalent, in biochemistry, enzymology or structural biology and have a demonstrated track record in conducting high quality original research. Knowledge at postgraduate level in structural biology (crystallography or electron microscopy) and/or biochemistry is essential and experience in expression/purification of multi-protein complexes in insect or human cells is desirable.

This is a full-time, fixed-term post until 31 December 2021. Appointments will be made at the start of the salary scale.

Imperial Expectations guide the behaviour of all our staff.
