Research Associate

University of Bristol - School of Physiology, Pharmacology & Neuroscience

Following funding from the British Heart Foundation we are able to appoint an ambitious postdoctoral Research Associate for 36 months to undertake an exciting project entitled “Regulation of P2Y12 receptor expression and activity by inhibitory pathways in human platelets: a novel mode of action of antiplatelet drugs?”. 

This study aims to improve our understanding of the mechanisms governing platelet activity and that of drugs used in acute coronary syndromes complementing ongoing work assessing how antiplatelet therapies affect platelet signalling in patient cohorts. This research may lead to the development of more effective and safer drugs for the treatment and prevention of cardiac disease or make for a more informed use of pre-existing therapies.

To undertake this work you should have a strong interest in receptor and platelet biology with practical experience of cell and molecular biology. 

For informal enquiries please contact Professor Stuart Mundell, 01173311440,

The closing date for applications is midnight on Wednesday the 21st of March 2018

The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture.  We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
