The University of Edinburgh - Institute for Stem Cell Research

Location: Edinburgh
Salary: £33,797 to £40,322 per annum

Placed On: 16th September 2020
Closes: 15th October 2020
Job Ref: 053207

Two Postdoctoral Research Associate positions are available in the Chambers Group to determine how pluripotency transcription factors act to regulate gene expression. We have identified target genes mediating specific transcription factor function. Enhancers driving expression of these genes will be identified functionally and the rules governing their activity in distinct cell types and their responsiveness to individual transcription factors determined.

The purpose of these two posts are to:

a/ use high-throughput approaches, including but not limited to, ChIP-STARR-seq to prepare and analyse libraries from naïve, formative and primed pluripotent mouse cells

b/ identify interactions between transcription factors and partner proteins to determine how proteins interact to regulate gene expression.

Successful applicants will have a PhD in Stem Cell Biology and/or Bioinformatics with a keen interest in how cell identity is determined. We seek individuals with expertise in preparation and analysis of high throughput sequencing data and/or expertise in analysis of protein interactions.

Both positions are full time and fixed term for 24 months.

Salary UE07 £33,797 to £40,322 pa.

Closing date is 5pm (GMT) on 15th October 2020.
