Fixed-term contract for three years, 1.0 FTE.
You will join the laboratory of Dr Stephen Royle in the Centre for Mechanochemical Cell Biology, Division of Biomedical Sciences at Warwick Medical School. The lab focusses on cell biology at the molecular level with projects on cell division, membrane traffic, cell migration and cancer. In a new HFSP-funded collaboration with the laboratories of Carlos Lois (Caltech, USA) and Erdinc Sezgin (Karolinska, Sweden), we will investigate how electromechanical signals influence membrane trafficking and intracellular signalling in neurons. The collaboration spans several length scales from vitro reconstitution, single cell biology (cell lines and neurons) and neuronal circuits in flies. The Royle lab primarily use imaging (light and electron microscopy) and genetically encoded probes to molecular mechanisms of cell function. We offer an outstanding environment for discovery science in one of the best universities in the UK.
You will have a good honours degree and have or expect shortly to have a relevant PhD, plus experience in molecular cell biology, strong scientific interest and motivation. A strong publication record is preferred.
If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (£31,411). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£32,348).
Interview Date: TBC.
