Research Fellow

UCL - UCL Ear Institute

Location: London
Salary: £36,770 to £44,388 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 4th November 2021
Closes: 5th December 2021
Job Ref: 1880141
 

The post is funded for 36 months initially.

The Daudet lab seeks to appoint an experienced Postdoctoral Research Fellow with experience in bioinformatics to contribute to a Medical Research Council funded research project into the mechanisms of early development of the inner ear (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ear/research/daudet-lab).

Our research aims to identify new genes and signalling pathways implicated in the formation of the neuro-sensory cells of the inner ear, which are essential for our senses of hearing and balance. Building on our previous work demonstrating the key roles of the Notch and Wnt signaling pathways in the early specification of inner ear sensory organs (Mann et al., eLife 2017; Daudet and Zak, Adv Exp Med Biol 2020; Zak and Daudet eLife 2021), we aim to explore new ways of addressing this question using insights from single-cell RNAseq data and bioinformatics, mouse embryonic stem-cell derived organoids, and Crispr/Cas9-mediated gene inactivation.

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, self-motivated postdoctoral Research Fellow. The post-holder will have a strong interest and previous experience in either developmental and stem cell biology, inner ear biology, mouse embryology, single-cell sequencing, or bioinformatics. The applicant will have excellent oral and written scientific communication skills, ability to organise and prioritise research tasks and work co-operatively in a multidisciplinary setting. Excellent organisational skills and a good understanding of health and safety issues and good laboratory practice are essential.

Applicants should apply online. To access further details about the position and how to apply please click on the ‘Apply’ button above.
