Duration Fixed Term Contract to 31 August 2022
Applications are invited for two highly motivated and organised post-doctoral research fellows to join the Stewart laboratory, based at the University of Birmingham, to work on understanding how inherited deficiencies in components of the DNA damage response, particularly proteins involved in DNA repair and/or DNA replication, contribute to the development of human disease (for examples see: Ogi et al (2012) PLoS Genet 8:e1002945; Murray et al (2015) Am J Hum Genet 96:412-24; Harley et al (2016) Nat Genet 48:36-43; Byrd et al (2016) PLoS Genet 12:e1005945).
Ongoing research projects within the laboratory focus on characterising the impact of patient-associated mutations in known DNA repair/replication genes on genome stability, the identification of novel human disease genes associated with defective DNA repair/replication and identifying roles for previously uncharacterised genes/proteins in the DNA damage response (for example: Higgs et al (2015) Mol Cell 59:462-77).
Candidates will be expected to undertake novel, cutting-edge, laboratory-based research within the field of the DNA damage response and replication, specified within a CR-UK funded research programme.
Some of the key duties with include:
