A 36 month postdoctoral research position, funded by the ERC, is available in the laboratory of Dr. Brian Stramer at King’s College London. The project will be carried out in collaboration with members of the Cell Motility and Cytoskeleton Group of the Randall Centre for Cell and Molecular Biophysics. This interdisciplinary project aims to dissect the role and regulation of Contact Inhibition of Locomotion by developing in vitro models using a variety of physiologically relevant cell types with a focus on investigating its functions in cancer (see recent publications below). The post holder will use a combination of molecular biology and advanced imaging techniques to understand the mechanisms and dynamics of the contact inhibition process. The successful candidate will have a PhD in Life Sciences and have strong experience with cell motility models and the cell biology of the cytoskeleton.
