Applicants are invited for a Research Fellow position in an exciting research programme held at the newly built Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children, on developing innovative treatments for neonatal hypoxia ischemia encephalopathy (NE) using small extracellular vesicles. The efficacy of EVs will be assessed in vitro.

 The aim of the research is to explore the neuro-protective effects of EVs with the view to develop cell-free therapeutics for the treatment of NE and overcome the hurdles associated with the injection of live stem cells. The duties of the post include (1) isolating/characterizing EVs; (2) using a NE in vitro model to determine the phenotypic effects of iEV treatment on recipient brain cells in vitro.

 Applicants must have a higher degree in a relevant discipline at a PhD level (if degree has not yet been granted, the final accepted version of the thesis should have been submitted to the degree granting university by the time of starting) as well as the necessary experience and skills to carry out the work. Previous experience with isolation and characterisation of small extracellular vesicles (EVs) released by human cells is essential. Experience with human stem cell culture is an advantage.

 Appointment at Grade 7 is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at Research Assistant Grade 6B (salary £32,217 - £33,958 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.

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