Department/Location: Department of Pathology, Central Cambridge
Applications are invited for a BBSRC-funded 36 month postdoctoral vacancy in RNA Biology.
The successful candidate will join a multi-disciplinary team based at the Department of Pathology in central Cambridge where they will investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying rapid translational responses that occur in response to bacterial injectisome penetration of animal or plant cells (please see link here for graphical outline; https://www.dropbox.com/s/nsygpthdbtfa0cb/3 year PDRA 2023 post.pdf?dl=0).
We are seeking candidates that are highly skilled in RNA biology and biochemical techniques, ideally in translational control and protein synthesis. Knowledge of bioinformatics and handling of biosafety level 2 material would be advantageous but not essential.
Candidates will be expected to hold a PhD, or equivalent qualification in molecular biology or biochemistry, ideally with experience in RNA biology. The candidate will be expected to conduct collaborative research; write up research work for presentation and publication; plan the use of research resources as appropriate; assist when needed in the supervision of student projects; provide instruction to students; and deliver seminars relating to their research areas.
Candidates should have a PhD, or expect to obtain one shortly, and have a track record of success in molecular biology and/or cellular biology research.
Appointment at Research Associate level is dependent on having a PhD.
Those who have submitted but not yet received their PhD will be appointed at Research Assistant level, which will be amended to Research Associate once the PhD has been awarded.
Salary Ranges: Research Assistant: £27,929 - £32,348 Research Associate: £34,308 - £42,155
The general duties/responsibilities which may be required for this post at either Research Assistant or Research Associate level are outlined in the Further Information Documents.
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 36 months in the first instance.
