Postgraduate Research Assistant in Cardiovascular Medicine

University of Oxford - Radcliffe Department of Medicine

Cardiovascular Medicine
Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics

You will join a team of researchers working under the guidance of Professor Ellie Tzima to understand how the mechanical stimulus of blood flow impacts cardiovascular function. In particular, understanding how vascular endothelial cells sense and respond to blood flow; how blood vessels remodel; and what pathways regulate endothelial cell activation that will ultimately lead to cardiovascular disease.

The post offers an opportunity to manage your own research and administrative activities, within guidelines provided by senior colleagues, contribute to wider project planning, including ideas for new research projects and contribute to the design of research materials and make arrangements for data gathering.

You will hold a BSc in biochemistry/biology and or PhD/DPhil/MD in a relevant discipline and will carry out independent research in vascular mechanotransduction. The Postgraduate Research Assistant will have experience in cell biology, molecular biology, tissue culture and microscopy.

This is a full-time appointment which is fixed-term until 31 August 2020 and you will be based at Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine.
