We are recruiting an ambitious, self motivated and experimentally talented post-doc to join us in understanding the regulation and role of biological oscillations in cell state transitions.

The specific aims of the project are to understand how oscillatory gene expression is generated and its functional importance of cell state transitions. We will interrogate the relative contribution of transcription and translation, using live imaging at single cell level to visualise mRNA production, mRNA translation and protein dynamics. Parameters governing these processes will be quantitated and used to inform realistic computational models, in collaboration with theoreticians in the lab. To understand the functional importance we will develop and implement methods to manipulate oscillations.

The post is funded by the Wellcome Trust and is available from 1 July 2022, with some flexibility, on a full-time basis, fixed term for three years. Candidates must already hold a PhD or expect to shortly in a Biological discipline and have at least one first author publication.  The successful candidate will have theoretical and practical knowledge in developmental, cancer or stem cell biology, excellent technical skills in molecular biology and experience with confocal live imaging of cells. Experience with scRNAseq, bioinformatics skills, coding ability and prior experience working in an interdisciplinary team would be an advantage.
