Research Department of Cell and Developmental Biology London
The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £35,328 - £42,701 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
Applications are invited for a Research Fellow position to join the multi-disciplinary research team of Prof Stephen Wilson in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at UCL. The post holder is expected to independently develop research projects. Prof Wilson’s research group’s two main interrelated projects focus a) on the development of the visual system in health and disease, and b) on the establishment and function of CNS asymmetry. The post holder will be involved in either project, with a focus on systems-level approaches, using computational methods, advanced microscopy, as well as genome editing techniques. The CNS asymmetry project may also involve, for instance, using optogenetics and developing novel animal behaviour assays. The post holder will also collaborate with other members of the group. S/he will analyse, prepare and present findings to peers internally and at external meetings, and will be expected to principally contribute to manuscripts submitted to peer reviewed journals.
The post is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is available until April 2021 in the first instance with possibility of extension.
PhD (or be studying towards it) in developmental biology or developmental neuroscience, ideally in zebrafish is essential as is significant experience and training in using zebrafish as a research model system and significant experience and training in zebrafish embryology and manipulation. A Personal Home Office Licence (PIL, zebrafish) is desirable.
Please note: Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (Salary £30,922 - £32,607 per annum, including London Allowance) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis (including corrections).
