This is an exciting opportunity for a talented, organised and highly motivated individual to join the team as a Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) on an MRC funded translational research project in the Department of Eye and Vision Science at the University of Liverpool. The project will involve the development of our new biosynthetic graft for corneal transplantation in collaboration with clinical colleagues at St Paul’s Eye Unit. This project aims to progress our technology along the translational pathway to the clinic. You will be leading on the culture and characterisation of human corneal endothelial cells and their interaction with the hydrogel materials and preclinical testing of grafts, working closely with another PDRA (see job ref. 034586). Applicants should have (or have already submitted) a PhD in a relevant scientific discipline. You should have a keen interest in tissue engineering and translational research and experience of human primary cell culture and have, or be willing to obtain a Home Office personal licence. International and national travel to collaborator sites will also be necessary.
This post is available full time on a fixed term basis until 31st October 2024 with an anticipated start date of 1st November 2021
