A Post-doctoral position is available to join a team of researchers in Bristol investigating the molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling immune cell extravasation from vessels and migration towards wounds, using a novel Drosophila pupal model recently developed in the host labs (Thuma et al, J. Cell Biol. 217,3045; 2018). The project will involve genetic screening approaches (to identify novel players in this process) as well as state-of-the-art live-imaging, transcriptomic/proteomic analyses, CRISPR, flow cytometry, molecular biology and some human Population Health studies.
The Bristol-based post-doc will be linked to, and integrating with, another post-doc at QMUL in the lab of Prof Sussan Nourshargh, (funded by the same MRC programme grant) who will be undertaking complementary studies of immune cell extravasation in murine models.
What will you be doing?
You will join the labs of Dr Helen Weavers and Professor Paul Martin. The role will involve the day-to-day running of the project, performing a range of research tasks, collaborating with other PDRAs (in our labs and at QMUL), and assisting with training and supervision of postgraduate members of our labs.
You should apply if
You will have a PhD (awarded or imminent) in a biological or biomedical science and ideally have some prior experience of working with Drosophila. Knowledge of tissue repair/regeneration or inflammation is highly desirable but not essential. You will be highly organised, eager to learn new skills, ambitious, and able to interact with a broad range of colleagues.
The funds for this position are available for up to 5 years.
Contract type: Open-ended with fixed funding for 5 years
