We are looking for an enthusiastic researcher to join our team. The candidate will be involved in a project studying the control of integrin-mediated cell-substrate adhesion and the control of integrins. The ideal candidate will have experience in research relating to cell biology, cell adhesion and migration. First hand practical experience with cell culture, CRISPR-Cas9 mediated genome editing, transfections/transductions, (confocal) imaging of fixed and living samples, cell migration, flow cytometry and standard biochemical methods including Western blotting will be advantageous.
This is an opportunity to join the dynamic research team of Dr Sonja Vermeren and work on a project focussed on examining of molecular regulation of integrins, and how this affects cell adhesion and migration in contexts such as inflammation and cancer metastasis. The lab is located in the Centre for Inflammation Research within the newly formed Institute for Regeneration and Repair at the world-class University of Edinburgh and provides a stimulating environment with access to cutting-edge technology and expertise in a wide range of cell and disease models.
