We have an exciting opportunity for a Research Associate to join the Sanz’s laboratory at the University of Glasgow. As a successful candidate, you will make a leading contribution to the project: "ROS via RET: a redox regulated pathway to extend lifespan” supported by the Wellcome Trust. The job requires expert knowledge in bioinformatics as well as basic knowledge in molecular and cell biology.
Specifically, you will conduct, manage and publish research in the fields of biology of ageing and mitochondrial biology. The position requires the generation, analysis and interpretation of omics and big data, and preference will be given to candidates with demonstrable experience in the form of publications or similar.
. Besides, you will assist in managing and directing this complex and challenging project including supervision of junior staff. The Sanz’s laboratory has characterised the first site-specific Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS)) signalling pathway which regulates animal lifespan: ROS produced via reverse electron transport ([ROS-RET]) at respiratory complex I. The successful candidate will work towards fully characterising this new redox signalling pathway by addressing three aims [i] identify the genes and proteins involved in the initiation, amplification and neutralisation of ROS-RET, [ii] understand when and where ROS-RET needs to be activated to extend lifespan, and [iii] dissect the epigenetic and metabolic changes associated with ROS-RET signalling.
The post has funding on a full-time basis for up to three years in the first instance.
For informal inquiries about the job, please contact Professor Alberto Sanz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
