UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health
The appointment will be on UCL Grade 7. The salary range will be £35,965 - £38,993 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study human spinal cord development, as part of the neuroscience research theme of the HDBI.
The post is focussed around developing and applying new methods to study cell lineage in this tissue. These include tissue culture of neural progenitor cells, lineage analysis with viral vectors and single cell RNAseq/barcoding analysis for reconstructing cell lineages.
The goal of the project is to map cell lineage in developing human spinal cord and, in co-operation with the other members of the neuroscience team, compare this with cell lineage in the developing forebrain. This research will inform our understanding of human neural progenitor cell behaviour and ultimately how this is altered following injury or in disease.
The position is funded by Wellcome for three years in the first instance, with the potential for extension for a further two years.
We are seeking a creative and highly motivated individual who wishes to study human developmental biology. Candidates should have a PhD in developmental, cell or molecular biology. The ideal candidate will have experience in at least one of the areas above, and a strong interest in nervous system development. Previous work in live imaging, single cell methods or explant culture would be advantageous.
