Research Associate in Plant Molecular Biology and Biochemistry

University of East Anglia - School of Biological Sciences

Location: Norwich
Salary: £26,243 to £32,236 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 12th June 2019
Closes: 17th July 2019
Job Ref: RA1639

Salary: £26,243 to £32,236 per annum

Applications are invited for a Research Associate to join the laboratory of Dr Ben Miller at the University of East Anglia (UEA).

You will join a Gatsby Charitable Trust-funded project to investigate how calcium signals are decoded by a calcium- and calmodulin-dependent protein kinase in plants. This project builds on recent work in the Miller group identifying novel mutants that are impaired for nodule formation in the legume-Rhizobium symbiosis.

As Research Associate, you will use biochemical techniques to characterise the impact of these mutations on protein function by assessing different aspects of signalling, e.g. calcium binding, protein phosphorylation and protein-protein interactions. Candidates interested in using some or all of these techniques to explore molecular mechanisms and calcium signalling are encouraged to apply.

Applicants should hold graduate level qualifications in a relevant subject, and have subject knowledge in the relevant area (for example molecular biology, biochemistry, plant biology, calcium signalling), as well as some research experience. You should also be able to meet all of the essential criteria in the person specification. Prior experience in plant biology is desirable but not essential.

This full time post is available from 1 September 2019 for a fixed-term period of 6 months.

Closing date:  17 July 2019.

The University is a Bronze Athena Swan Award holder, currently working towards Silver
