Part-time Postdoctoral Research Associate - Understanding TGFbeta Activation in Health and Disease

University of Oxford - Department of Biochemistry

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to investigate the structure/function relationships in the LTBP family of extracellular matrix proteins, in order to understand the TGFbeta dysregulation associated with connective tissue diseases. In this project we aim to use cellular and molecular structure-informed approaches to investigate the role of the LTBP/fibrillin interaction in normal and pathological situations

Applicants should possess, or expect to obtain soon, a PhD in biochemistry, cell biology or a related area and should have relevant experience in mammalian cell culture (fibroblasts), in vitro refolding and purification of EGF-like domain proteins and plate-based assays such as ELISA. 

This part-time fixed-term post is funded by the MRC for up to 6 months in the first instance and is based at the Department of Biochemistry, South Parks Road, University of Oxford.

This position is graded on the University’s Grade 7 scale, the actual starting salary offered will be based on qualifications and relevant skills acquired and will also be determined by the funding available. This is unlikely to be more than £38,833 p.a. (pro rata).

Further particulars, including details of how to apply, can be obtained from the document below.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on Friday 19 January 2018, with interviews for shortlisted candidates to be held as soon as possible thereafter.
