We are a world class research-intensive university. We deliver teaching and learning of the highest quality. We play a leading role in economic, social and cultural development of the North East of England. Attracting and retaining high-calibre people is fundamental to our continued success.

The Role
A research position is available to a motivated and enthusiastic researcher interested in studying the mechanism of replication and segregation of the human mitochondrial genome.

The position is in the recently established research group of Dr Tom Nicholls at the Wellcome Centre for Mitochondrial Research. The project will use a range of molecular, biochemical and cell biology techniques to study the mechanism of mtDNA segregation on a molecular and cellular level. The integration of basic science with clinical work at the Wellcome Centre for Mitochondrial Research also provides excellent opportunities for collaborative work into the molecular basis of human mitochondrial diseases.

You must have an excellent primary degree in the life sciences and a PhD in mammalian or bacterial genetics, biochemistry or cell biology (or be studying towards a PhD for Research Assistant level). You must have a strong grounding in molecular biology techniques. Previous experience of confocal and super-resolution microscopy for the study of cultured cells (especially for the study of mitochondria) is desirable. You should have a strong capacity for independent scientific thought and be able to design and carry out research projects individually or as part of a team.
