We are seeking a talented epidemiologist/biostatistician, with a relevant PhD/MSc or equivalent experience. As the successful candidate you will have a keen interest in biomedical research and a systematic and thorough approach to their work. You will work within a recently funded Scar-Free Foundation Programme (entitled “Using large cohort studies to identify scar-associated genetic variants for mechanistic testing in mouse and zebrafish models of wound healing”) and within the Medical Research Council Integrative Epidemiology Unit at the University of Bristol (MRC-IEU) and Population Health Sciences in the Bristol Medical School. The key component of this work will be analysis of the relationship between human germline genetic variation and population level measures of scarring and wound repair. This will include overt examples of wounding (e.g. skin scar measures) and also clinical diseases and outcomes where wounding and repair are important factors (e.g. pulmonary fibrosis).
What will you be doing?
The next steps for this work and involve finding additional gene targets for scarring to test in mouse and zebrafish models. Specifically, this will involve;
The successful candidate will be embedded within a close-knit and enthusiastic team consisting of the PI, several post-docs and postgraduate students and technicians. The candidate will liaise closely with the PI and their colleagues working on mechanistic testing in mouse and zebrafish models of wound healing in the lab of Professor Paul Martin, Bristol (http://www.bris.ac.uk/biochemistry/people/paul-b-martin/index.html). The successful candidate will need to oversee project progress, taking the initiative in the majority of day-to-day decisions about experimental details, troubleshooting and budgeting. You will be responsible for:
