The Department is pleased to offer an exceptional opportunity for a talented and ambitious postdoctoral scientist to work in a team investigating regenerative medicine strategies after myocardial infarction. You will work under the guidance of Professor Robin Choudhury and Professor Paul Riley to make fundamental discoveries that provide new insights into cardiovascular stem cell function and potency. The current proposal targets the role of the innate immune response using state of the art cellular characterisation and systematic intervention.

You will be expected to manage your own academic research and administrative activities which involves project management and the ability to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. As well as this you will test hypotheses and analyse scientific data from a variety of sources, reviewing and refining working hypotheses as appropriate.

You will hold a PhD/DPhil or equivalent qualification in a relevant discipline as well as a 1st class or upper second class degree. Proven experience with molecular techniques relevant to this project is required and previous experience in histology or Immunohistochemistry is desirable.

This full-time appointment is on a fixed-term contract for 3 years and is funded by the BHF centre of Regenerative Medicine. You will be based on the level 6 West Wing in the John Radcliffe hospital and the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG).
