A Wellcome-funded postdoctoral position is available to investigate the causes of aneuploidy in human female meiosis. The successful candidate will be based in Andrew McAinsh’s laboratory in the Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology, Division of Biomedical Sciences, Warwick Medical School. You will be joining a collaborative effort between the Universities of Edinburgh and Warwick and will employ molecular and cell biological approaches to uncover the molecular origins of chromosome abnormalities in the human oocyte and embryo. The ultimate goal is to understand the causes of recurrent miscarriage and infertility.
Applicants must have, or will shortly obtain, a PhD in cell biology. The successful candidate will be highly motivated and enthusiastic with an outstanding academic track record, good communication skills and the ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary collaborative team. Applicants with experience in live cell imaging and cell biology methods are particularly encouraged to apply.
Where you have not yet been awarded your PhD, any offer made to you will be an under-appointment to the post of Research Assistant at a salary of £30,046 per annum. Once your PhD has been awarded, you will be appointed to the substantive post of Research Fellow at a salary within the range shown above. The proposed start date is as soon as possible and this post is funded by the Wellcome Collaborator Award for 36 months.
