We are looking for a highly motivated research fellow to support the laboratory of Dr Dirk Sieger.

The Opportunity:

Within this project we aim to understand how microglia (the resident macrophages of the brain) contribute to network formation in glioblastoma.  We use a combination of tissue culture and zebrafish as a model to understand the interactions of microglia and the developing network during glioblastoma growth. Our aim is to undercover the underlying mechanisms and find ways to inhibit network formation in glioblastoma. You will be part of an international team and lead our studies to understand cellular connections amongst glioblastoma cells and the role of microglia in this process.  The post requires extensive experience in cell biology and tissue culture. Experience in using the zebrafish as a model would be an advantage. Furthermore, extensive experience in microglial biology and the required techniques (see job description) would be beneficial.  This post is fixed-term for 3 years initially with the option of extension depending on funding renewal.  

Your skills and attributes for success:

  • PhD, or PhD near completion, in an area of neuroscience, cell biology, developmental biology or immunology
  • Ability to communicate complex information clearly, orally and in writing
  • Extensive expertise in cell biology and molecular biology
  • Extensive expertise in tissue culture.
