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 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.
